Synopsis

Nearly a generation later, the middle-aged Dobie Gillis is nothing like he was as a youth, having sown all of his wild oats. He's settled into predictable adult life married to the reliable Zelda (who pursued him all through high school), and assumed his father's role of running the family variety store. Suddenly, key industries in the town shut down, putting hundreds out of work and severely threatening the local economy. Dobie, as head of the town council, is looked upon to lead the town out of this desperate crisis. When all seems lost, life-long friend Maynard G. Krebs appears, representing an old acquaintance who has a strange demand.
