Trivia

In one of the episodes which included all three alumni of Gilligan's Island (1964), Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr. and Jim Backus, there was an inside joke where Backus' character asked the other two: "Hey, haven't I seen you two before on an island somewhere?" See more »

After Gilligan Came This
24 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Essentially, this series centers around two soda jerks, Bod Denver & Herb Edelmen, who try to bumble their way through a lot of comic situations. Even though the idea of soda jerks is from the 1950's, this show manages to bring off the idea with comic results. Actually they own an ice cream shop. The chemistry between Edelmen & Denver is as good as Denver & Hale.

In fact, a couple of Gilligan's alumni appear on the series, Hale &Jim Backus. I was hoping that Mary Ann would appear, but if I remember correctly she didn't do any shots on this show. No matter, the show was funny & well done.

Jack Perkins does some excellent drunk sketch comedy on this show. While that type of humor has gone out of style now, his reoccurring guest shots on this show were all very funny.

This was yet another CBS series that did not last long enough in the late 1960's as it just barely got to the second season. Too bad as Denver was very good in this one too.
