Dudes you got it all wrong. It was Thelma Meninger who stole the show. I had many "dreams"
about her growing up.
I watched Dobie semi-regularly. Many people don't remember Tuesday Weld on it, and even fewer remember Warren Beatty, as a snobby "frat-boy" character.
Yes, it would stand the test of time. Compared to most of the comedies today, it's would be too cerebral for the low brow audiences.I thought it was a funny show back then. I’m not sure it’ll stand the test of time
Dwayne was a decent actor and I believe a studio producer
Everyone is overlooking Frank Faylen and Florida Friebus as Dobie and Davey's parents. Davey was played by Dwayne's brother Darryl. Also in the cast was Doris Packer, who was Mrs. Rayburn, the principal of Mayfield Grammar School in Leave it to Beaver
Having not seen Dobie Gillis in forever I’d like to see a few shows to see if holds up. Comparing the two is like apples and bowling balls.Yes, it would stand the test of time. Compared to most of the comedies today, it's would be too cerebral for the low brow audiences.
