Certainly a Lost Treasure
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is certainly a classic and a nice view if your a fan to actually go backwards and see the first last. I sure was glad to see the teacher, Bunny, and Ginger (Kit Smythe) get replaced with the professor, Mary Ann, and the real Ginger (Tina Louise). In this we see people at ground zero of what is to become a great series. It is fun to watch the cast kind of puttering about trying to make something with a pretty much thin plot. It's interesting to see Alan Hale and Bob Denver interact with each other. In what would evolve into a great comedy duo here is very raw and unpolished. The Howells are the same polished act that they were in the series and for the most part are the only thing here that will closely resemble what you will see in the series, a true testament to their abilities. This episode has a look and feel of a very limited script and allot of improv and although I don't know this for a fact it sure looks that way. Either way it is certainly fun to watch and enjoy for series die hards or those just watching for the first time.
