SOAP's Arthur Peterson and Booth Colman
15 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Smile, You're on Mars Camera" finds a Martian space probe unable to make it beyond Gilligan's island, landing by the lagoon where all that can be seen are palm trees, foliage, and a hut full of feathers secretly gathered by Gilligan for a special pillow for Mrs. Howell. The two scientists are played by familiar faces Booth Colman and Arthur Peterson, the latter so dim he already looks like he's playing The Major on the popular 70s comedy SOAP. At no time does it ever dawn on them that the probe is still on Earth, and when the castaways attempt to signal them about rescue, Gilligan and his boiling glue, coupled with the multitude of feathers, result in one of the more outlandish sights in the show's history, the scientists reaching the natural conclusion that they've discovered a race of chicken people!
