Donald Elson maybe?
Definitely reminds me of "Jerry Lewis" type character ... check it out. Or if character's name was Mr. McCandless, it's probably Lawrence Dobkin. Never could understand "uncredited" cast members - was part too small?
Who is that guy...
...That played the newspaper faculty advisor, with the dark hair and glasses? He always plays a dorky kind of "Jerry Lewis" type of character, and I can never find his name in the film credits.

Just watched perhaps the most endearing yet AMAZING performance by Bobby Van & as a Uuuu...ge fan of both Bob Fosse & Debbie Reynolds... that's saying a lot. Great seeing Hans Conreid & Laurene Tuttle again, too - both great actors. Is it me or does the heart & talent - WITH a generous pinch of delightful silliness in "The Affairs of Dobie Gillis" seem more joyful than a whole bunch of sleek big budget movie musicals put together? Why, the singing & dancing numbers alone here are "TO DIE FOR"!
Dobie and Charlie!

Quite obviously, "The Affairs Of Dobie Gillis" is a low-budget MGM programmer, but it does have an attractive and energetic cast, especially the four leads. At one point, Bob Fosse says to Bobby Van, "You are a living doll". And Bobby Van was/is "a living doll", who should've been turned into a star. But, thank God, we, his fans, still have "Small Town Girl" and "Kiss Me Kate" in which he shone brightly. By the way, when Bobby Van and Bob Fosse danced in "The Affairs of Dobie Gillis", their unique dancing abilities were all that film really needed. If the storyline had been less cliched and the production numbers more ambitious, we made have had a really great MGM musical.

It would be nice to view this movie in its entirety. I DVR quite a a lot movies to watch when unable to watch them at its regular schedule time without any issues. With this movie I've encounter problems twice with it's scheduling. Both times incorrect starting times.

A fun and very energetic musical, Debbie Reynolds is wonderful. Bobby Van, he just never had what it takes. Some fine music, a funny story and the basis for a very popular television series in the 1960's. Nothing great, but quite entertaining.
