Trivia

The song playing on Gilligan's radio is called "Coconut Boogie", performed by Jim Shipman and the Shipwrecks. See more »

Goofs

In the opening credits, the S.S. Minnow that is shown before the cruise, and after beaching on the island is different of the one shown during the storm. (No upper deck above the windows where the helm is, and the front of the cabin is straight, rather than pointed.) See more »

Quotes

[the castaways have set up a courtroom and are conducting a trial]
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.
[Later in the same courtroom sequence]
Skipper Jonas Grumby: Ginger's very damaging to us.
Gilligan: Yeah, her testimony.
Skipper Jonas Grumby: No, her legs.
[And finally... ]
Thurston Howell III: I'd like to charge Mary Ann with murder.

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.

Proof That TV Executives Are Idiots
12 May 2001 | by (Collinsport, Maine) – See all my reviews

While this show was on, the TV Executives did everything they could to kill this show that everyone loved. They moved it all over the schedule to no avail, but the fans faithfully followed it. It finally took one dreadful mistake to drag Gunsmoke on for a little while longer to finally kill the show. Since then, the show has become a cult hit; now what does that tell you ? That fans really do love the cartoony characters as they learn life's little foibles and lessons the hard way. Gilligan has since become the patron god for all guys with a Peter Pan complex who strive to hold on to their youth, and Skipper Jonas Grumby has become the boss or parent we would all prefer as he hands out chores and punishments with a smile on his face and laughter in his heart. Thurston and Lovee Howell have since become the first images we think of when we picture wealth, prosperity and happiness, and Professor Roy Hinkley is the teacher we would all want who knows his facts and figures and the calmness to explain them. He is criticized for not being able to build a boat, but how many boats do we know he may have tried repeatedly times between episodes ? The show was also made special by the beautiful visages of Ginger Grant and Mary Anne Sommers. Although Ginger probably intimidated a lot more guys than she claims to have dated, I think it was Mary Anne with her quiet innocence and girl-next-door attraction that made her the odds on favorite "babe" of the show. The series itself was excellant escapist fun that didn't need to be analyzed. It was created to entertain, and it did that wonderfully well.
