Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This classic first-season episode was written by Clifford Goldsmith, the man who created the character of trouble-prone teenager Henry Aldrich in the Broadway play What a Life. It's also the one and only episode in which June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley) mops the kitchen floor while wearing high heels -- and not by choice! In dire need of money for baseball uniforms, Wally (Tony Dow) and Beaver (Jerry Mathers) seek out odd jobs around the neighborhood. Hired to mow a lawn, Wally thinks he's pretty smart by working very slowly so that the hourly rate will increase. But in the end, it's Beaver who's the smart one: armed with the knowledge that the neighborhood's water supply is about to be temporarily shut off by the city, Beav amasses a small fortune selling water to one and all!
