Default "Rick Grows A Beard"

I love this episode. I don't want to give away too many spoilers about the plot, but I will say that it's about...Rick's decision to grow a beard.

This episode first aired in early 1965, when growing a beard was still mostly considered a "bohemian" thing to do. So there are lots of opportunities for wisecracks about Rick's beard from the rest of the Nelson family, and also a couple of great slapstick scenes with Wally and Ginger.

Anybody else like this episode?

I know I've seen this once or twice but it's been a while & what a wonderful excuse to go back and re-view it. Just my opinion of course but I think its perfectly fine to discuss the ep...so if you want to...go for it!

Just re-saw it this morning. I liked it a lot. Boy everyone wanted that beard. And poor Ozzie trying to claim theat $50 at the Emporium. It's a fun ep & interested to see what all the guys would look like in a beard.

I liked the newspaper photo of Ozzie -- he looked kind of "spacey" in the picture.

It was pretty hilarious when the store clerk pushed the security alarm. At first I thought he pushed the button because he thought Ozzie was falsely trying the claim the prize, but then I realized that he thought Ozzie was crazy!

I'm glad you enjoyed this episode!

My favorite scene was the young woman's reaction to Ozzie's beard, when she was borrowing the Nelsons' typewriter IIRC... A funny scene!

Beards are good. I have been known to grow one from time to time.

Yeah, me too. I've had one since the early 1980s, but I've always kept it trimmed pretty short. I wouldn't want to have a beard like the guys in ZZ Top.

I own this episode on a one-disc, four-episode DVD collection that I bought at one of the local dollar stores. I don't know if it's on any of the larger DVD compilations that are out there.

Rick was a very handsome guy, no need to hide his face in a beard - and I don't say that about many guys! Most of the time I look at these teen idols and wonder "why do girls go for him?" but in Rick's case, I can see why.

Also besides the fact that he was very handsome he was a gentleman and a nice guy. Add that to the equation and you get......WOW!!
