Fantasy Island is a resort, where there is very little that the host, Mr. Roarke cannot provide. Thus we have visitors have adventures in fantasies that should be impossible, but this island can accommodate them such as visits to any time period they want, meet absolutely anyone they see to do something they request such as getting William Shakespeare to write a play for them. The only constant (until the final season) was at the sight of the incoming visitors, the Mr. Roarke's midget assistant runs up to the bell tower to ring the bell and shout "De plane!, De plane!"

The customized Volare (which resembles a modern-day sport utility vehicle or crossover) seen throughout the series was part of a product placement deal with Chrysler Corporation since Ricardo Montalban is a spokesperson for their TV commercials dating back to 1975 where he promoted the Chrysler Cordoba and mid-1980s New Yorker sedans. Also, the Volare seen through the series run is the ancestor of the modern-day SUV and crossover although the Chrysler F platform vehicles (Volare, Aspen, and its J and M derivatives (Diplomat, LeBaron, Mirada, Fifth Avenue, Imperial) were rear-wheel drive.

I used to love this show as a child. What a wonderful concept, a person pays for a vacation, which acts out his or her "Fantasy". Thankfully this was not part of an adult programming. However, the show had reunions of people meeting loves from high school, and events people wanted. The show's writers had imagination too show what you want can turn into a nightmare. Ricardo mentioned this line in every third show. Ricardo, and Tatoo were well casted. As I matured, I will agree with the other posts that the storylines were thin, the sets cheap, along with rushed directing and scripts. Hard to watch again, but the what kept myself watching for a couple of minutes is some of the neat concepts, and the freshness of having new guests every week. With all television, the ideas became old, and they pushed the series 2 years too long.
