"The 2nd Ginger Grant" episode description
4 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode starts with Ginger singing a sultry "Poo-Boo-Be-Do," entertaining the castaways with her version of "I Wanna Be Loved By You." Sweet moral Mary Ann is uncharacteristically overcome by "Ginger envy," something which may have been hinted at in other episodes but definitely came to the foreground in this show.

(In an article by an 8th grade English teacher, trying to teach his students characterization, the teacher compares the Gilligan's Island characters to the Seven Deadly Sins. It is this episode that gives Mary Ann the sin of "Envy.")

Mary Ann falls, hits her head, and wakes up, believing that she is Ginger.

In order not to confuse Mary Ann in her delusion, the real Ginger is persuaded to dress up like Mary Ann. This whole turn of events has Mrs. Howell very confused.

Mary Ann (thinking she's Ginger) cuts up Ginger's dresses so they will fit her. The real Ginger is understandably upset and starts crying.

This is one of the few episodes that I actually remember seeing in prime time when I was in kindergarten.

About 5 years later, when I was in 4th grade, several of my classmates and I saw this episode as part of the after-school reruns, and we decided to act it out.

Even though I am male, I am a born ham, and I volunteered to play the part of Ginger. Using someone's winter scarf (which I pretended was Ginger's feather scarf), I opened our skit singing a very hammy (not really that sultry) version of "I Wanna Be Loved By You." (I think I ad-libbed Ginger's opening line to be "Whoop-Whoop-pee-do.") The kids in my class thought I was so funny that they all asked me to do a command performance for all our 4th grade teachers at the beginning of each class.

We then did act out the rest of the show, in our own truncated version since we did not have the script, with kids from the class playing the different parts. We picked out this goofy kid to be Gilligan, an overweight kid played the Skipper, and this one girl was a dead-ringer for a Jim Backus/Mr. Howell accent, especially when Mr. Howell tries to explain to Mrs. Howell what's going on.
