Dobie Gillis Trivia

When Dobie was pondering his problems in the park, the famous statue immediately behind him was a reproduction of "The Thinker" by  Auguste Rodin

Maynard G. Krebs claimed the "G" stands for "Walter."  His explanation was that his mother "didn't spell too good".

DC Comics published a Many Loves of Dobie Gillis comic that ran 26 issues in the early 1960s, featuring work by Bob Oksner. Stories from this comic would later be revamped as Windy and Willy.

During the first season of  "Dobie Gillis." Denver, who was stealing the show as Dobie's beatnik buddy Maynard G. Krebs, was going to be drafted into the Army and had to exit the series. Actor Michael Pollard was brought in as Jerome Krebs to fill the void left by Denver.   When Denver was classified "4-F" due to a longstanding neck injury and returned, Pollard's character of weird cousin Jerome Krebs was quickly written out.

Another popular character was Zelda Gilroy, so popular that James, was slated for her own spin-off, "Zelda," and four episodes were filmed, but the project was dropped when rumors began to circulate that she was a lesbian. Sheila James Kuehl is a lesbian and when passed over  for promotions, went on to study law and in 2000 became Elected to the California State Senate, for a four-year term.  In 2004 she was reelected to the California State Senate by a landslide victory.  In January 2007 Kuehl  filed a "Statement of Intention" to run for California Secretary of State in 2010.
