Tuesday Tunes: Gilligan's Island

I was in grade school when Gilligan's Island was in its prime and I loved it. Just goes to show the maturity level of the target audience. Was it grade school kids? I don't know. My parents watched it, too, but I could tell they weren't that impressed. Just going along for the ride.

Anyway, here's the theme song if you haven't heard it for a while. But to be honest, you must live on another planet if you haven't seen the show and the G.I. marathon reruns on TV.

I couldn't embed the video, but you can check it out YouTube. Click here.

Who's your favorite character?
I like Mary Ann. She was so cute in her shorts and midriff tops and she looked like me. I always thought she and the professor should be a couple, but upon reflection, I think he was too old for her. They had nothing in common except for their special interests in coconuts...she could make a cream pie and he could build a radio.

The professor was always my favorite.

I was a Professor fan too. I also know the Skipper's and the Professor's real names, mentioned maybe only once on the show - Captain Jonas Grumby, and Professor Roy Hinkle. The Professor was known for writing the book "Rust - The Real Red Menace." What a great show! Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Luana!

Angela: He was the only sane one. And maybe the Skipper.

Craig: Wow! I totally forgot about the names. Interesting that Skipper was Jonas (from the Bible..Jonah and the Whale).
