Premise

A wry, hip-for-its-time sitcom that charts the hopes, dreams and frustrations of a typical teen (if sitting under the statue `The Thinker' while pining for the megacute Thalia Menninger could be considered typical). Based on stories by humorist Max Shulman, the series lasted four years, during which Dobie's hair turned from blond to brown. A year after finishing his role as Dobie's goateed friend Maynard G. Krebs, Bob Denver segued into another iconic 1960s show---`Gilligan's Island.'
