Widower Sheriff Andy and his son Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry NC. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney.

The theme song is the winner of the 2013 Yahoo TV Best TV Theme Song Ever. The 12th seed in a bracketed competition, it beat the theme from Cheers in the finals. See more »
In Gilligan's Island: Love Me, Love My Skipper (1966), when Gilligan comes swinging into the party as Tarzan, the first shot has him in control as he starts his swing, but the second shot of him has him out of control and on the upswing as he crashes into whatever was on the table, then in the third shot of him he's in control and on the downswing when he swings between the Skipper and Professor and into the hut's wall.

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.

A reference is made by the Skipper, in one of the earliest episodes, as to how Gilligan saved the Skippers life on an aircraft carrier(I believe)by pushing him out of the way of a loose depth charge on the deck(I believe). The Skipper states that Gilligan didn't save his life, he just prolonged it subjecting him to more of Gilligans exploits.
