    The spanking scene from Dobie Gillis

    Thanks to Tommy for giving JockSpank permission to post this legendary and much sought after clip from the 1962 episode of “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, entitled “Where is thy Sting?” in which the handsome hero Dobie, played by Dwayne Hickman, receives a good hard spanking from his dad.

    Unfortunately I have not seen the full episode, but the following review was posted online at the IMDb site by brandonforce691 last year:

    Dobie is rejected by pretty young med student, Emily, because her attentions lie on curing the sick. In order to win her affection, Dobie pretends to be terminally ill, saying that he only has six months to live. The plot is successful and Emily showers Dobie with attention.

    Emily thinks that it is only fair to tell Dobie’s best friend, Maynard, about Dobie’s imminent demise. Maynard’s big mouth leads to Herbert and Winifred, Dobie’s parents, finding out about their son’s condition. Emily and the Gillises begin to cater to Dobie’s every whim, fearing that each day might be his last. Dobie gets breakfast in bed, and extended curfew and entertaining shows from his parents. 

    Dobie’s Dad (played by Frank Faylen) swears to be a better father for Dobie’s last few days on earth. Dobie wants to tell them all the truth, that he is perfectly healthy, but he is enjoying the luxurious treatment too much. Dr. Bunkhard (Jean Byron) returns to campus after a sabbatical and is quickly summoned to Dobie’s bedside. She asks Dobie to report to her the following morning for a full phyical, hoping to find a cure to his disease.

    Dobie frets that the physical will prove that he has been lying all along and comes clean to Maynard about his lie. Maynard promises to help him in the morning. When Dobie arrives in the morning, he pretends to be cured miraculously in the night. But Dr Bunkhard still insists on a physical. After the tests are finished, Dr Bunkhard ask Maynard to run the scans, x-rays and reports over to the lab. En route, Maynard crashes into an 87 year old man who has recently had similar tests done. The x-rays and reports get mixed up before Maynard hands them in. Dr Bunkhard reports to Dobie and his family that Dobie’s internal organs show the signs of deterioration that one would expect from an 80 year old.

    Dobie is shocked to discover that he really is sick and resumes his invalid status, taking breakfast in bed. The next day, the 87 year man is gloating that he is in prime condition, with the body of a 20 year old. At this point, Dr Bunkhard figures out what has happened. She, Emily and Dobie’s parents resolve to teach Dobie a lesson. They convince him that he really is dying but that there is just one miracle cure for it: a good. To Dobie’s horror that cure turns out to be a hard old fashioned spanking.

    This is promptly delivered, over his father’s knee, with his Mother and Emily holding him down throughout. Dobie receives a thorough spanking on his thin pajama-clad behind. The next day, when Dobie is tempted to lie, he remembers his spanking and thinks twice about it.
