Gilligan's Planet

Gilligan's Planet was a Saturday morning cartoon which aired during the 1982-1983 season on CBS.

Gilligan's Planet hinged on the premise that the Professor had managed to build an operational interplanetary spaceship to get the castaways of the original series off the island. True to form of the castaways' perpetual bad luck, they rocketed off into space and crash-landed on an unknown planet, which coincidentally had an atmosphere that was breathable to humans and had edible foodstuffs—in fact, the background of the planet often resembled little more than the tropical island they were stuck on all those years, but was simply recolored to make it seem more "alien". The rocket, of course, was severely damaged in the crash, and the Professor resumed his perpetual attempts to repair their only way home.
