Trivia

As the show progressed, producers planned to introduce a new character - a pet dinosaur - but decided against it because of the cost of special effects. The character, however, was incorporated into the animated Gilligan's Planet (1982). See more »

Goofs

In the opening credits during the black and white and color episodes, the Minnow hits the storm has its top deck where the helm is located is missing. See more »

Quotes

Thurston Howell III: What is this slop?
Skipper Jonas Grumby: It's Gilligan's own creation, Mr. Howell, It's coconut pot pie.

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.

Silly compared to what?
4 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

Why is Gilligan's Island considered so often as the silliest show on TV? Perhaps because it wasn't set in white suburbia?Because there was no house,no kids,no first dates,no report cards,no morning newspaper, no boss,etc.Was it really sillier than its rivals,such as Bewitched,Munsters,Flying Nun,Addams Family,Jeanie, etc,which were basicly stupid gimmick shows,featuring fantasy in the middle of pseudo-reality?

Some Gilligans Island episodes were very good and funny(by TV standards);some were stupid (by any standard).Yet unlike the other shows of its genre it clearly told all of us-this is fun,this is campy,this is a spoof of pop culture.It isn't reality. Maybe that's why we remember it(love it or hate it) and forget so many other shows.
