The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis - The Complete Series
Retail: $139.99, Our: $109.99
More great TV from Shout! Factory as they have announced a July 2nd street date for The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis - The Complete Series.
The 20-disc set will feature all 147 episodes from the comedy series which had a four-year run.
No word on single season sets, but hopefully their release schedule will be similar to their Leave it to Beaver output, which had Season 3 and the complete series come out in the same month (June 2010), followed by Seasons 4, 5 and 6 every three months. When single season sets are released, we will have them available for rent.
Retail will be $139.99, but it's available at ClassicFlix.com for only $109.99.
"Hello, I'm Dobie Gillis, and I love girls - tall ones, short ones, blonde ones, dark ones, any kind of girl..."
Based on the novels created by Max Shulman, this television classic starred Dwayne Hickman as Dobie, a middle-class 17-year-old whose main goal in life was to find the girl of his dreams, Bob Denver (Gilligan’s Island) co-stars as Dobie’s beatnik friend Maynard G. Krebs, whose passion was to avoid work at any cost, and Frank Faylen and Florida Friebus as Dobie’s parents, who were never too far away to worry about Dobie’s future.
Throughout its 147 episodes, the series ran the gamut from the hilarious (Dobie and Maynard sharing a tuxedo in order to attend a society party together), to the ridiculous (Maynard drinking a student chemist’s formula and turning into a monster) to the touching (Dobie convincing a poor but brilliant student to stay in school).
Guest stars include Rose Marie, Bill Bixby, Sally Kellerman, Ronny Howard, Sherry Jackson, Michele Lee, John Banner, Norman Fell, Howard McNear, Charles Lane, and a host of others.
A ground-breaking series that has often been said to be far ahead of its time, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis premiered on CBS in the fall of 1959 and was a counter-culture hit through all four years of its network run.
