How often did you have toys that you played with all the time and a few years pass and the toy sits in a closet, basement or attic simply gathering dust? In this Leave it to Beaver episode, Beaver’s trains are that toy. June Cleaver has decided to give the electric train set to Johnny, a little boy who will enjoy them instead of just leaving them to gather dust. However….and this is a big however, items like old train sets look a lot more enticing when they are about to be given away. Beaver, at the enticing of friend Gilbert, decides to keep the trains and lies about them being broken in order to not give them away. Of course, Bevaer’s fib doesn’t keep the trains from being given away to little Johnny. Wally winds up giving the trains away when Johnny’s older, good looking sister comes by for them while Beaver is gone. Now, if that doesn’t sound like a double cross, I don’t know what does.
