When he gets there, he wants to see if there is any soup. For real. So he ends up in the bowl and gets stuck. The backdrop of this is that Beaver was headed over to a sleepover at Whitney’s house. Also, Wally was having his first teen party at the Cleaver house. He didn’t want Beave to mess it up. Oops.

They turn into spies and climb up a tree to get a good view of the festivities.

Beaver and Andy

This is one episode worth checking out.
