    Synopsis


    The longest "three-hour tour" in history gets under way in the first season of Gilligan's Island. In the course of the season's 36 episodes, originally filmed in black and white, the viewer becomes intimately familiar with the famous seven stranded castaways: Skipper Jonas Grumby (Alan Hale Jr.) and first mate Gilligan (Bob Denver) of the S.S. Minnow, run aground on an unchartered desert isle after a ferocious storm; millionaire Thurston Howell III (Jim Backus) and his wife, Lovey (Natalie Schafer), who have apparently brought along their entire expensive wardrobe; movie star Ginger Grant (Tina Louise), who always manages to find cosmetics despite being marooned thousands of miles from civilization; secretary Mary Ann Summers (Dawn Wells), she of the cute halter tops and short-shorts; and Professor Roy Hinckley (Russell Johnson), an expert on everything except a means of getting off the island (or even repairing the Minnow). Episodes during the first season focus on the castaways' various escape attempts, their efforts at acclimating themselves to their new environment, and the petty squabbles and power plays that threaten to break the group up into Survivor-like warring tribes. Although the regulars are unable to leave the island, quite a few guest stars manage to make their way to the isle's shores, among them Hans Conried as bungling pilot Wrong-Way Feldman, Vito Scotti as a misplaced WWII-era Japanese soldier, Larry Storch as mobster Jackson Farrell, Kurt Russell as a junior-league Tarzan, and Denny Miller as handsome surfer Duke Williams. Of course, the scriptwriters always manage to find some way of getting these visitors back to civilization -- without ever revealing the existence or location of the castaways!

      I purchased this item when it was a promotional item. With what is not available on television today, it is a warm welcome to good clean comedy. Gilligans Island is something that all members of the family can sit around together and enjoy watching.

      Hard to believe this show was only on a couple of years. As kids we loved Robinson Carusoe and this show updated the concept. Just silly fun and great cast

      I ended up returning the item, I was replacing my brothers set that I broke and needed the exact same packaging as his original in order to match seasons 2 & 3.

      What more can I say than this is such a great show and well worth when all you want is a mindless laugh. It never fails to entertain me.

      For this baby boomer, watching the first season of Gilligan's Island was a nice journey down memory lane.
