Pretty sure Beaver charged two different prices for a small and a large drink.
LH meTed 22 months ago
Yes he did. And then he charged as they were drinking (like a service station gas pump). Remember him counting?!

The LITB episode you refer to “In The Soup” was the most expensive episode costing $500K. At that time, a HUGE amount of money.

$60,000 back then in the 1960's, adjusted for the present almost $510,000.
cheduff LoveMETV22 22 months ago
I wonder how much a 1965 Valiant cost back then?
LoveMETV22 cheduff 22 months ago
About $1,600 for the base model, up to $3,000 with bells and whistles. I wonder how much a model in good condition would get nowadays 57 years later ?

#5 - $3.00 to join a clubhouse! If I had that much money back then I would have spent it on 20 hamburgers or 30 comic books or 30 ice cream cones or 60 Coke’s or 300 pieces of penny candy. Not to join a clubhouse.
