Storyline

Fantasy Island is a unique resort in the Pacific Ocean, where there is very little that the mysterious overseer, Mr. Roarke, 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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

Whenever guests were arriving on Fantasy Island, Tattoo (Hervé Villechaize) would run up to the bell tower, ring the bell, and announce "de plane!" After he left the series, Mr. Roarke's new assistant, Lawrence (Christopher Hewett), would simply push a button next to him, which would ring the bell. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[repeated line]
Tattoo: Da plane! Da plane!

fun memory's from a fun time.
18 December 2005 | by stormrustonSee all my reviews

I bought this for my wife, she waited with anticipation for the release date.

If it is not a part of your early teen years it may not appeal to you, as this is all about pleasant memory's.

There is a short but interesting documentary on the DVD set that gives some in-site to how the show came about.

The episodes them-self,for me, are a gentle reminder of how bad and corny and good T.V. was back then. A blast to watch and I really enjoy these as back ground visual and verbal noise as I study.On a good day I will sit and pay attention to the episodes. This is TV folks and it shows, but we liked it then and I enjoy the feelings it brings about now.
