Let's celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Leave It to Beaver with the overaged Beav (John Candy), Wally (Eugene Levy), and Eddie Haskell (Dave Thomas -- and up till now, we thought he was "The Beaver"), as well as a drunk-as-a-skunk Ward Cleaver (Joe Flaherty). This episode also features the first appearance of the sinister Dr. Tongue (John Candy), as he introduces Swami Banananda (Harold Ramis) and the Swami's pet cobra. Also on deck is the early morning health show "Exorcising With Regan Blair," featuring Catherine O'Hara as you-know-who who does you-know-what in Hell; a commercial for Lin Ye Tang's (Dave Thomas) first starring film, "Blind Fist of the Furious Dragon"; and "Dialing for Dollars," with Moe Green (Harold Ramis) hosting the film classic "Three Jerks and a Gal." And won't you help juvenile alcoholics play "on the wagon"?
