Did You Know?

Trivia

Created by Sherwood Schwartz, it has been said that the show's early failure was due to the fact that it was too similar to Bob Denver's earlier series Gilligan's Island (1964), also created by Schwartz. Denver plays a character very similar to that of Gilligan. In addition, there is a wagon train leader (similar to the Skipper), the Brookhavens, a rich couple (the Howells), Lulu, a saloon entertainer (Ginger), Betsy, a sweet young girl traveling alone (Mary Ann), and Andy, a bright young man who easily figures things out (the Professor). With "Gilligan's Island" in constant reruns, people preferred to tune in to that series rather than this one. See more »

Goofs

In the show with the tornado coming towards the wagon train, it was quite obvious that someone superimposed a hand drawn, scribbled sketch of a tornado over the finished film. Has to be the worst replica of a tornado in television history! See more »

The 'Gilligan' Goes West
28 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dusty f/k/a Gilligan gets his wagon lost to the chagrin of Forrest Tucker (formerly of 'F' Troop and playing a rough version of G.I.'s 'Skipper'.)

I thought this series had just as much originality as "The Knacks" second album and (come to think of it) was probably seen by about the same number of people as heard The Knack's second album. The humor was about on par with Gilligan's Island; however, for some intangible reason much less likable or watchable, even to a then young viewer like me.

Nobody's going to ever dust off Dusty and call it a classic--that's for certain. A perfect example of going to the well too often. Even Bob Denver and Forrest Tucker's Saturday Morning shows, both together and apart, were better fare than this series.
