Storyline

Both Wally and Beaver are heading to the movies for the afternoon. Beaver and Larry end up seeing "The Mad Hypnotist". After seeing the movie, Beaver tries to see if he can hypnotize someone - anyone. With his mother, father and brother all too busy, Beaver turns to the only person who gives him the time of day: Eddie. Despite Wally threatening him not to bother his brother, Eddie decides to have fun with the Beaver by pretending to be under his spell and be his slave. With Eddie following him around in a zombie-like state, Beaver isn't sure if he really did hypnotize Eddie, but he is still scared of Eddie's behavior nonetheless. When Beaver starts having nightmares while screaming out Eddie's name, Wally knows what his friend has done. Wally and Beaver decide to exact their own form of revenge on Eddie. Written by Huggo
