Default Good Bye "Little Buddy"

Bob Denver 1935-2005
Spent much of my after school time laughing at the antics of Bob Denvers' "Gilligan".
He's finally off the island.

Shame...

GI was the epitome of cornball, slapstick sitcoms...but everybody has - at some point or another - caught themselves whistling, humming or singing the opening tune!

Oh God...I'm going to have it stuck in my head for days now!!![:0]

The way he used to squirm every time the girls on the island would try to coo him. He'd usually trip over something while retreating. There has to actually be a stat somewhere or there should be...of how many times did the skipper's hat- hit Gilligan? It's gotta be over a hundred. I was saddened to see the news.

My all time favorite? When the lost WWII Japanese one man sub sailor arrived at the island and Ginger steamed up his glasses.
That dude actually looked rough enough like he had been living in that sub for 20 years floating around the Pacific. too funny.

A couple of us were just singing it on a recent hike, in one of those sillier moments. Right, Arbutusq??

It was my favourite show when I was about 7, but my 7-year-old mind used to get frustrated with the way Gilligan would manage to screw things up every time they had a real chance at rescue.

I heard the news today on Rock 101...he must have been in his late 20's when "Gilligan's Island first aired. Just curious; any other "Gilligan's Island" stars still alive?

Dawn Wells is a fishing guide and entrepreneur- had a fishing show for a while, IIRC- and lives here in the Northwest.
Russel Johnson and Tina Louise are still around...

Vito Scotti played the Japanese soldier and a mad scientist as well.

Played lots of "bit parts" on other shows/movies too. Link

I remember that episode with the Japanese sub guy too. "You steam my grasses"..HA! Can't get away protraying those stereotypes on TV anymore like you could back then.
You'd think though, that since the Skipper served in WW2 in Guadalcanal that he woulda beat that Japanese guy to a pulp when he discovered who he was.

Gilligan's Island (La isla de Gilligan) was broadcasted in Colombia and even though I was too little to remember, I do remember my mum laughing her socks off and me thinking: I love this show!!!

When our grand-daughter was new and would cry (a lot!) the only song that would calm her down was the theme song from "Gilligan's Island."

We would get to "... a three hour tour, a three hour tour," and she would calm right down. (We didn't do the storm sequence - that upset her.)

Baby's Mom thought we were pretty weird, but hey, it worked! And, it was a nice walk down memory lane for me and my wife!

Hey, BG, stuck in my head is a line from Gilligan talking to those headhunter dudes who always visited the island. " Poo loo see bagoomba" (phonetically spelled, as I recall it) .
My most poignant memories of the show come from the two years I lived in Edmonton. I'd crawl inside from the biting cold of winter, drink hot chocolate, and watch GI. Maybe the tropical setting helped warm us up (?)

My favourite episode as well... and a phrase that has lasted through the ages... I used it as part of a language my daughter and I made up...
'Skipper watch out for that....'

Ha ha, so I did remember it right Or we're both nuts...

Hey , does anyone remember the episode where the professor concocted an amazing device using only coconuts and the cobbled together exercise bike made of ship's parts and bamboo?

How about the one where they almost got off the island, but somehow Gilligan screwed it up in the end?

My favorite was when the musical group "The Mosquitos" came to the island to rehearse. Classic schtick.
