A small dictionary of teenage 'slanguage', created in 1962 by an ad agency to promote The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, a sitcom that aired on CBS for four seasons.

Yes, that's Gilligan on the cover (before he was Gilligan).

Never gave a hoot about Gilligan, but Maynard was for sure a cool cat.

Gilligan's Island was beneath me, but Dobie Gillis (and especially Maynard G. Krebs) was cool, probably because I was younger. Anybody remember Maynard's shtick about the old Endicott Building? Wikipedia does (and says it's Krebs with one "b"). A young Tuesday Weld was in some episodes.
