Gilligan, who messed up every chance to get the castaways rescued?<br><br>
The Skipper, all bluster, but with a big, soft heart?<br><br>
Squeaky clean farm girl Mary Ann?<br><br>
Sultry movie star Ginger?<br><br>
The brainy Professor, who did everything from fixing the radio to dental work?<br><br>
Mr. Howell, the millionaire?<br><br>
Haughty Mrs. Howell?<br><br><br><br>
How about one of the wacky guest stars? Or one of the natives from one of the nearby islands?<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Hey, how could <i>anyone</i> forget that episode. It's the one where they almost made it off the island... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br><br><br>

OMG no, no, no! That was in <b>no way intended as a slight against this thread</b> but rather at the silliness of GI (and the predictable joke people make at its expense) which is a show I loved as a kid and have enough fond memories of today that I can even remember the name of my favourite guest star.<br><br><br><br>
I love this thread. That's why I am playing along! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:"><br><br><br><br>
Silly threads rock! We need more of that sort of thing here in my opinion!<br><br><br><br>
Peace! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

My fave episode has to be the one in which the silent movie equipment washes ashore and they make a movie describing how they were marooned, and send it off. It winds up as an entry at the Cannes Film Festival, where it wins a prize! The radio announcer says "We don't know who made this movie, but it's won a prize. All you have to do is come to Cannes and get it!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Hmm. Sorry? What was that? I couldn't hear you. A filling in my tooth got knocked loose and my mouth became a radio... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
(Or how did that episode go again?)

I LOVE Gilligan's Island!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br><br><br><br>
But didn't they nearly get off the island in *every* episode??? That's part of the fun!<br><br><br><br>
I would be the old prisoner who had the homing pigeons but when he got the pigeon with the message he was told he was released and let the bird fly away without reading their note. He was played by Sterling Holloway (voice of Winnie the Pooh)<br><br><br><br>
Oh Oh! Or that episode where the director washed up and they did the musical of Hamlet!! I loved that one. I think that was Phil Silvers.<br><br><br><br>
Or that episode with that huge unrealistic spider in the cave....I could go on!<br><br><br><br>
edit: Spiderman has just informed me that homing pigeon and the giant unrealistic spider are the same episode. I am geek girl married to geek boy.

How about "secretly wild" Mary Ann? I mean, really, did anyone buy that innocent stuff? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Oh, I loved Gilligan's Island as a kid.<br><br><br><br>

We had these wooden cups that looked like coconut shells. I drank from nothing but those for years.

How could I possibly have voted for anyone <i>other</i> than the professor? He was super smart (though not smart enough to get them off the island) and always kind of had some sexual tension with Ginger and Mary Ann. He was totally gettin' some.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

i doubt highly anyone would be a better Ginger than me, other than Tina Louise herself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

The Professor of course. Oh why don't they ever show Gilligan's Island on Nick at Nite anymore like they used too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> TVland, anywhere?<br><br><br><br>
I wonder if you can buy all episodes on DVD now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

They probably couldn't make 1/3 of these episodes now because they contain so many blatant stereotypes.
