  • Dobie "K" Gillis learns how to use "cosmic magnetism" (or somesuch, I haven't seen it recently to remember exactly what they called it!) to put others in the "susceptible listening position" and have his way with them.moreless

    A great episode with wonderful interactions between Dobie and Thalia, as well Dobie and Herbert. Of course the snake oil salesman "hypnotist" is revealed as a charlatan showing Dobie that the real power was inside him all along. We all learn a lesson from this "beardless youth". And for those of you wondering the hypnotist gives him the middle initial "K", to balance the D and the G, of course!
