I see via Mark Evanier’s blog that there are plans to release the entire series of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis on DVD.

I used to be a big fan of that show when it first aired in 1959-63, and I enjoyed it again in the mid-90s when Nick at Night revived it. But Nick never showed my all time favorite episode, one that I’ve only seen one time when it aired in 1960 just before the presidential election.

In that episode Maynard G. Krebbs had developed psychic abilities and was going to predict the winner in advance of the Kennedy-Nixon race. He was scheduled to appear on a national tv show to announce the winner, and then…

Well, I don’t want to give it away. I hope they include that episode on the DVDs, cause I’m really curious as to how well it holds up over 50 years later.
