Second episode scripted by George O'Hanlon
18 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Ship Ahoax" opens with the Professor worrying that his fellow castaways may be suffering from 'island madness,' with everyone at each other's throats, even the Howells. Ginger convinces Gilligan that she can foretell the future, so the Professor asks her to conduct a séance and predict a ship coming to rescue them. Shocking even the seer is a broadcast announcing an actual ship on its way. Eventually Ginger confides that she's a fake despite her latest prediction also coming true, but the islanders are no longer fighting amongst each other. The was the second of two episodes written by actor George O'Hanlon, best remembered on screen as Joe McDoakes, and the offscreen voice of George Jetson, following the first season's "New Neighbor Sam."
