Leave It to Beaver Wally's Weekend Job (1957–1963) Online
Wally wants to get a weekend job so that he can have some pocket money without always having to ask his father for it. Wally manages to get a job as a soda jerk at Mayfield Drugstore. Wally, already a popular guy, becomes even more popular with the girls who think he looks even cuter wearing his uniform. Eddie and Lumpy, on the other hand, neither like the fact that Wally is attracting all the girls, or that, in even having a job, he is looking more responsible to their own parents. Eddie devises a plan to make Wally look bad, using the fact that Mary Ellen Rogers is having a slumber party that evening. Wally exacts his own form of revenge.

Although Wally never had a steady girlfriend during the course of the series, the two girls he dated most often were Mary Ellen Rogers and Julie Foster. This is the only episode in which they both appear.
When trying to pay for his soda, Gilbert empties his pockets on the counter and a number of baseball cards spill out. These are all Topps cards from the 1959 set even though the episode was filmed in 1961. The cards are #383 Words of Wisdom (Don Larsen and Casey Stengel), #392 Whitey Herzog, #416 Haywood Sullivan, #418 Gino Cimoli, #437 Ike Delock and #484 Willie Kirkland, all from the sixth series. Larsen threw the only perfect game no-hitter in World Series history (1956), Stengel and Herzog are Hall of Fame managers and Sullivan was a former Boston Red Sox executive.
