The counter-culture TV hit co-starring Gilligan's Island funnyman Bob Denver is finally on DVD in an amazing, collectible 20-DVD box set containing all 147 episodes from 1959-1963. Dwayne Hickman plays Dobie, a middle-class 17-year-old whose main goal in life is to find the girl of his dreams, while Dobie's beatnik friend Maynard's (Denver) passion is to avoid work at any cost. Also featuring Warren Beatty and Tuesday Weld, the timeless show triggered a sea change in sitcoms and dramas which would focus on the hopes, dreams and angst of teenagers for decades to come. Special bonus features include original rare pilot footage and bonus episodes from Love That Bob! (The Bob Cummings Show) and The Stu Erwin Show.
