A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
Fantasy Island is a unique resort in the Pacific Ocean, where there is very little that the mysterious overseer, Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalban), cannot provide. Visitors can experience adventures that should be impossible, but this island can deliver. However, what actually happens is often far more than they expect as they face challenges that test their character in ways they never imagined.Written by

The show was broadcast every Saturday on ABC at 10 p.m., after The Love Boat (1977), which was also produced by Aaron Spelling. Like several other series of the era, such as The Love Boat (1977) and Murder, She Wrote (1984), this show employed many celebrity guest stars, often bringing them back repeatedly for different roles.

The "lagoon" where the seaplane arrives bringing each week's guests has no tide, nor wave action. In fact, it is so placid and calm that it is clearly a large pond on a controlled set and not the waterway on or near an island. See more »
Originally, this show had a dark side to it which quickly disappeared. The dark side was replaced with silly problems brought on by it's "guest stars." Think of any washed up movie star and they made an appearance on this show. The exotic locale helped, with the plane bringing that week's stars to the island, flying over waterfalls, and mountains along the way. Mr. Roarke would always greet his guests and then turn to Tattoo and say something ominous to him about one of this weeks fantasies, just so we'd stay tuned. This was essentially a landlocked "Love Boat." It was harmless fluff and part of my formative years...how scary is that?
