Ward and June are totally out of character in "The Clothing Drive." It's as if they were thinking of changing them for the 6th season, then changed their minds (thank goodness), and then just threw away the episode at the end of the series. I think it's the worst episode in the entire series. Beaver was way too old to be as stupid as he was in that episode. You may say, in retrospect, that there would have been nothing wrong with starting the 6th season with three Wally episodes in a row. The problem was it was still called "Leave It to Beaver," and it wouldn't have made much sense. I think they made the right decision to alternate Wally and Beaver episodes, no matter what order they were filmed in. The decision processes of "How should we make these?" and "How should we show these?" are two entirely different things, with different variables and reasoning.
