Goofs

When Sam the Parrot leads the men to the cave where the "jewels" are buried, the Skipper remarks that he has "never seen this cave before." However, earlier in the episode, the men crouched outside the very same cave to eavesdrop on the "gangsters" they thought were inside. See more »

Quotes

Jonas 'The Skipper' Grumby: [the parrot has dug up a small box. The Skipper picks it up and starts dusting it off] It's a jewel box all right. Jewel... crackers.

George O'Hanlon scripts his first of two
8 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"New Neighbor Sam" was the first of two scripts contributed by actor George O'Hanlon, in collaboration with actor Charles Tannen, who had already written three earlier episodes, "Hut Sweet Hut," "Three Million Dollars More or Less," and "Big Man on a Little Stick." Tannen's career as a writer totaled 18 credits for 8 TV series, while O'Hanlon was a longtime veteran laugh getter as Joe McDoakes, before finding additional fame providing the voice of George Jetson on THE JETSONS (his writing credits for television were just as few, both continuing to act for another decade). It's rather a shame that this turns out to be so disappointing, as both Gilligan and the Skipper overhear voices promising to shoot first and ask questions later. Midway through the plot about dangerous gangsters on the island collapses when we learn that all of the voices belong to one fellow, the talking parrot Sam, voiced by the greatest talent of them all, Mel Blanc. Sam responds very strongly to the mention of 'boat' or 'jewels,' and Mr. Howell tries hard to maintain his usual greedy streak. There's a payoff in regard to the jewels but not the boat, and the final revelation of where the gangsters came from is also tough to swallow. The best line comes from the fearful Skipper: "don't any panic body just because the comesters are ganging!"
