Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ward (Hugh Beaumont) is bit hurt when it seems that Beaver (Jerry Mathers) and Wally (Tony Dow) would rather spend time with the father of one of their neighborhood friends. It turns out that the boys are attracted to Mr. Dennison (Lyle Talbot) because he has set up a basketball hoop and backboard in his yard. Thus it is that Ward tackles the same architectural challenge, but things don't quite work out as planned. (Incidentally, guest star Lyle Talbot was the father of child actor Stephen Talbot, who'd later join the Leave It to Beaver supporting cast in the role of Beav's buddy Gilbert).
