A True Classic
This has got to be one of the campiest shows of all time. When you look at all this show you see a stereotype of the different types of people who make up our society. You have the working guys (Skipper and Gilligan), the intellectual (the Professor), the sex pot (Ginger), the sweet girl (Mary-Ann) and the upper crust capitalists (the Howells). Too bad this show didn't last another season. I would have loved to have seen them do a series finale instead of the horrid reunion movies. Maybe if they did it that way we could have gotten another season where Mr. Howell builds a resort on the island and Gilligan was the jack of all trades that really kept things rolling.

Also, the biggest question of all, Ginger or Mary-Ann?

Trivia

Sherwood Schwartz claimed that, contrary to popular belief, "Robinson Crusoe" was not the inspiration for the series, even though it was one of his favorite books and was referenced in the closing song.


Quotes

Thurston Howell III: Your Honor, will you get another gavel?
Professor Roy Hinkley: Why?
Thurston Howell III: That one's squirting milk all over me.
Skipper Jonas Grumby: Ginger's very damaging to us.
Gilligan: Yeah, her testimony.
Skipper Jonas Grumby: No, her legs.
Thurston Howell III: I'd like to charge Mary Ann with murder.
Professor Roy Hinkley: Murder?
Thurston Howell III: Her testimony's killing me.


Goofs

It has often been observed that although they were on "a three hour tour," the castaways have an awful lot of supplies. Mary Ann and Ginger have seemingly not ever worn the same clothes twice, the Professor has an extensive library, the Howells have myriad luxury items, etcetera.


Crazy Credits

During the first season's opening credits, for some reason neither The Professor, Russell Johnson nor Mary Ann Dawn Wells received an on screen billing, nor were they referred to in the theme song. They were just referred to as "... and the rest." For seasons two and three they were added at the request of Bob Denver, who played "Gilligan" and thought it was stupid to leave out the two actors just to shorten the introductory song by a few notes.


Alternate Versions

There are two different versions of the homing pigeon episode. Version 1 has a scene of Gilligan and Skipper sneaking into the professor's hut and feeding the pigeon a pie, followed by Ginger and Mary Ann giving it milk; this version airs on TBS. Version 2: Gilligan and Skipper are talking in the hut and the dialogue between Ginger and Mary Ann is shortened. This version airs on TV Land.
