Trivia

There are two different published versions of this episode. The most notable differing scenes are:

Ver. 1: The Mosquitos' concert is shown just as it is ending; and the Honeybees each sing solo parts in multiple verses of their song, "You Need Us." This is the version originally aired on CBS, as most viewers may recall.

Ver. 2: The Mosquitos perform a full song, "He's a Loser" (a different song from Ver. 1), in their concert; and the Honeybees sing together just a single verse of "You Need Us." This version has appeared subsequently in TVLand reruns. See more »

I love this episode!
14 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love how they made fun of the whole British invasion style music in this episode. Another bonus is the girls singing 'You Need Us' as the female trio 'The Honeybees'. Tina Louise and Dawn Wells in tight pants and turtlenecks are so hot! This is a classic episode in this wonderfully silly classic TV series that's a favorite of me and many others worldwide. The whole improbability of their situations and their endless wardrobe changes (they had a TON of clothes for a three hour tour!) and how many times the castaways 'almost' got rescued by visitors like The Mosquitoes, Don Rickles, Phil Silvers, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Vito Scotti and more guest stars....oi vey! I still love this show a lot.
