Trivia

The "egg in the ear and out the mouth" trick Gilligan does can be clearly seen. First off, the hand movement he does when he puts the egg in his ear show it slipping into his hand and that hand coming straight down looking the same, then one can see that Gilligan's mouth is slightly puckered as he is holding the other egg in there that is part of the trick.

For once the castaways get to see Gilligan disappear

"It's Magic" starts off well then grows tiresome, with Gilligan reeling in a crate of magician's tricks that should help the castaways convince any head hunters that they have magic powers. Ginger reveals that she started out in show business as a magician's assistant and teaches the others the varied tricks involved. Midway through, Gilligan overhears the others criticize him for ruining their breakfast and volunteers for the disappearing cabinet trick, and really vanishes. Determined to stay in his one room cave as a 'lone wolf,' he refuses to rejoin the others, with Mr. Howell too being forced to apologize and give up his prized teddy bear: "you say it real fast, it kills the pain!" As Gilligan says, the final payoff does provide 'a real blowout.' Resplendent in magician's cape, Jim Backus puts in a plug for bandleader Ted Lewis: "is everybody happy?" (more caped crusading in "Gilligan's Mother-in-Law" and "Gilligan the Goddess").
