Maynard G. Krebs is a character in the 60's TV show The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Most of you probably know him as Gilligan from Gilligan's Island. His real name is Bob Denver however. (NO not John Denver he's a dead country star!)

Maynard G. Krebs was supposed to be a beatnik but was not really one. He was of course the Max Shulman made up Hollywood version of a beatnik. He could actually be the first ever TV slacker. He was often heard making the statement "WORK?!?".
