The prolific Kurt Russell as Jungle Boy
11 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Gilligan Meets Jungle Boy" features the very young Kurt Russell, son of actor Bing Russell, as the titular Jungle Boy discovered living on the island by Gilligan. Swinging through trees with the young boy serves to bring out the little boy in the already child like Gilligan, more of a juvenile adventure than usual for the show. When the Jungle Boy reveals a hidden pocket of helium that makes things float, there's even greater opportunity for fun with a man made balloon of old sewn together raincoats. Alas, only the Jungle Boy goes up up and away, no help for rescue as the only English he speaks is 'boy, girl, and no.' Kurt Russell did so many shows at the time that today's audiences forget just how prolific he was as a child actor, appearing on such top series as GUNSMOKE and LOST IN SPACE.
