Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Beaver (Jerry Mathers) is upset when his parents punish him for staying out late on a school night to go to the local jalopy races. Reading the advice column "Tell It to Ella," Beaver decides to write a letter to Ella, pleading his case. Certain that Ella will be persuaded to agree with him, Beaver tells his friends about what he's done, and they heartily congratulate him. But the plan backfires when Ella sides with Beaver's parents -- and soon none of the kids in town are allowed to go to the races on week nights!
