Gilligan's Island

Gilligan's Island was TV sitcom that ran from 1964-1967.

The two-man crew of the charter boat S.S. Minnow and five passengers on a "three hour tour" run into a tropical storm and are shipwrecked on an uncharted, uninhabited island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. The show followed the comic adventures of the seven castaways as they attempted to survive and ultimately escape from the island. However, they typically failed due to some bumbling error committed by Gilligan. Sometimes this would result in his saving the others from some unforeseen flaw in their plan.

The castaways were Gilligan - the bumbling, dimwitted, accident-prone crewman of the S.S. Minnow; Jonas Grumby "Skipper" - the skipper of the S.S. Minnow and the father-figure type; Thurston Howell, III - the condescending millionaire; Eunice "Lovey" Wentworth Howell - Thurston's wife; Ginger Grant - the movie star; Roy Hinkley (The Professor) - a research scientist and well-known Scoutmaster; and Mary Ann Summers - the good girl.
