Boyishly handsome Dwayne Hickman, the younger brother of child actor Darryl Hickman, followed in his sibling's tiny footsteps as a moppet film actor himself appearing in such features as Captain Eddie (1945) (with Darryl) and playing the role of Nip Worden in The Return of Rusty (1946), and the rest of the dog adventure series. On a temporary sabbatical from acting, he returned to Hollywood following college studies (Loyola University) and won the hearts of many young female baby-boomers as the girl-obsessed nephew in the "The Bob Cummings Show" (1955) and especially as the swooning, adorably sheepish "teen" in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" (1959) as the title character. Unable to escape the cramping typecast, he ended up working behind the scenes from the 70s on as a publicist, a Las Vegas entertainment director, and, most successfully, as a programming executive for CBS. Dwayne has returned to acting on occasion in "Dobie" retrospects and other light comedy efforts. In 1994, he wrote his biography, aptly titled "Forever Dobie."
