TV Shows - Gilligan's Island

Gilligan's Island was an American TV sitcom originally produced by United Artists Television. It aired for three seasons on the CBS network, from September 26, 1964 to September 4, 1967. It was sponsored by Philip Morris & Company and Procter & Gamble. The show followed the comic adventures of seven castaways as they attempted to survive and ultimately escape from a previously uninhabited island where they were shipwrecked. In 2002, Gilligan's Island came back as a reality show, similar to Survivor, where 7 contestants were shipwrecked on an island. They then had to recreate the original Gilligan's Island sitcom with costumes and props.

1 NOT EVERY EVIL SIDEKICK"s named IGOR!Just the two that Dr.Boris Balinkoff [your friendly neighborhood mad doc from a sinister, eerie looking haunted house castle Island bought from Vincent Price] and one of the Russian characters. This show never boned, and, sadly, no o ne boned Ginger or Mary Ann.. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on September 29, 2015, 4:28 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Did anyone else notice how EVERY SINGLE guest star was named "Igor". I got SO sick of that!! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:46 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 We made this hut entirely from bamboo and coconuts...Just how much bamboo and how many coconuts grow on one small island? Ginger had an amazing wardrobe-do you think her luggage was bottomless, like Mary Poppin's carpetbag? And the Howells-they apparently brought everything they owned on a three hour tour. Which raises a question-why would people that rich, who could afford their own yacht, go on a boat tour run by someone like the Skipper and Gilligan? Did you notice that the professor had tons of books? Did he bring his whole library on this three hour tour? Where did they stow all this stuff on the Minnow? When they washed their clothes-the only clothes they had being the ones they were standing up in-did they just stand around buck naked while waiting for them to dry? The image of Thurston Howell or the Skipper naked is enough to cause dry heaves. And how did they keep said clothes so clean? Was there a tree that dispensed Tide or something on the island? Let's not even get into what a diet that consisted mainly of bananas, coconuts, and bamboo would do to the human body -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:45 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Am I the only person who thought Coconut Cream Pie was an imaginary thing they made up only for Gilligan's Island? My mom was a health freak, and I almost died when I was 16 and saw Coconut Cream Pie on the menu. I actually asked the waitress if that was new and if anyone else had actually tried it. "Coconut Cream Pie!? I thought that was something only Maryanne could make..." -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:43 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 On a steady diet of coconuts, bananas and fish, how did the Skipper stay so damn fat??? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:42 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 They should have cooked the Skipper's fat ass. They could have survived for another 15 years on all that meat. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:41 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The episode with the giant black morning spider. When that big fake looking spider showed up, the show really jumped the shark. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:40 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This show jumped when the Professor didn't build them a boat. Sure, he could build numerous radios from coconuts, but a boat? No, that's way too complicated! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:39 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Where do you start? The Howell's massive amount of luggage (for an ostensibly 3 hour tour), the fact that no one ever gets it on with Ginger or Mary Ann, how the Professor keeps a radio running for years with no batteries, etc. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:38 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I don't know if this was intentional or not, but how is it the Soviet Union obviously knows the castaways are shipwrecked on this island but the US doesn't have a clue? And yes, I do mean the entire "Soviet Union", not just select hapless citizens who stumbled upon them by accident like Harold Heckuba, The Mosquitos, or other Americans who find them there. That Russian body double of Gilligan's didn't show up by accident. He KNEW who he was impersonating before he ever disembarked. Then there was the Russian who tried to use them to rob Fort Knox. How'd he know they were there to be his patsies? Then there was the "ghost" Russian played by Richard Kiel ("Jaws" from the Bond movies). He knew they were there too, else who was he trying to scare off the island / blow up? And why did the Russians want the castaways dead? Very weird plots in those "Russian" episodes that makes you wonder if they weren't trying to make them look smarter than their "clueless" American counterparts. Apparently if you were American, you were a dolt unless you were Professor Roy Hinkley lol. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 3:21 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I liked this show when I was younger. I'm sure, if I watched it today it would be corn ball. I will say that the Mary Ann, Ginger debate is still alive and well today. Well at least at my work anyway. Mary Ann! -- Submitted By: (Jp) on November 11, 2011, 10:49 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Oh I voted never boned for sure. Gilligan's Island can't be taken seriously. Ever. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 7, 2011, 11:16 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 you cannot take a silly show like this seriously, sure every episode had 101 problems i mean every ones wearing long sleeve shirts on a tropical island??and if the howells were as rich as they say they were, wouldnt they be on their own private yacht?but they show never boned it was always just silly fun. -- Submitted By: (hifijohn) on June 6, 2011, 3:51 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Several years ago I was on a jag of reading autobiographies of 60's & 70's TV stars (Barry Williams, Mickey Dolenz, etc.) One of those Auto-Bio's I read was that of Russell Johnson titled 'Here on Gilligan's Isle.' Very entertaining read if you ever come across it. SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Before reading that book, I never knew that Russell Johnson was one of the top contenders for the role of Captain Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek pilot (the role which ultimately went to Jeffrey Hunter). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 12, 2011, 10:56 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Russell Johnson used to come into my bookstore once in awhile. Ironically, though his character the Professor was given practically no good lines on the show, being the ultimate straight man, Johnson is a funny guy in real life. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 8:24 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I would be inclined to think that if the events of Gilligan's Island had happened to a real group of castaways- After Gilligan had messed up the first two or three opportunities to get off the island, he probably would've met with an "unfortunate accident" in the Lagoon. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 12, 2010, 3:12 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Oh come on now. This had to be one of the stupidest shows of all time. For the few times I watched, I wanted to strangle that moron. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on October 8, 2010, 8:14 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

19 Agree, MaryAnn was so hot, I had such a big crush on her in Junior High. Forget Ginger or Lovey - MaryAnn was the bomb. Eventually I got married to - you guessed it - a farm girl from Kansas! We moved to California and had a wonderful family - thanks Dawn Wells! -- Submitted By: (smaxie) on May 11, 2010, 2:11 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Mary Ann was sooo hot. That island would have been as populated as the Philippines had I been stuck on it with her and Ginger. Hell Lovey Howell could get some too. This show was good clean fun, a humorous escape from the hustles and bustles of everyday life, frustrating as heck though. There were too many easy ways for these dummies to get off that island. Cheesy and cheap looking show. Loved it anyway. never Boned -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 9, 2010, 5:35 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
