In the pilot, the part of the Professor was played by John Gabriel. Instead of the movie star and the Kansas farm girl, the pilot had two secretaries: Ginger, a practical redhead played by Kit Smythe, and Bunny, portrayed by Nancy McCarthy as a cheerful, stereotypical "dumb blonde."
The pilot had a different theme song by John Williams, with a Calypso beat and singer and a slightly longer opening credits, including brief shots of Gilligan carrying the Howells' luggage to the boat and spilling coffee on the Skipper during the storm. .The episode proper begins with the castaways waking up on the beached boat and deals mostly with practical problems: exploring the island, trying to fix the transmitter, building huts and finding food.^ You can build a spaceship and not fix a boat?

.This episode begins with the same scene of Gilligan and the Skipper awakening on the boat as in the pilot (cut slightly differently to eliminate most shots of the departed actors) and continues with the characters sitting on the beach listening to a radio news report about their disappearance.^ This is one of the many pilot episodes that sold, just didn't get aired (Such as Captain Jack, which was renamed Leave it to Beaver), instead they altered the show drastically, replacing actors, characters, and the theme song.

.In its last year Gilligan's Island was the lead-in program for the CBS Monday night schedule.^ That night, Gilligan dreams that he is a caveman chiseling a story on a stone tablet three million years ago.

It was followed for the first sixteen weeks by the sitcom Run, Buddy, Run. The time slot from 7:30 to 8:30 Eastern was filled in the 1967–1968 season by Gunsmoke, moved from its traditional Saturday 10 p.m. time slot.

Typical plots

.The shipwrecked castaways want to leave the remote island, and various opportunities present themselves.^ The shipwrecked castaways awaken to find themseleves marooned on a uncharted island.

^ While the Castaways attempt to rehabilitate him, he ends up leaving the island, accompanied by Mrs. Howell's pearl necklace, Mr. Howell's wallet, and Ginger's earrings!

Reunion films, clones and spin-offs

The success of Gilligan's Island spawned a number of clones and spin-offs:
  • Dusty's Trail was a 1973–1974 syndicated television series by Sherwood Schwartz starring Bob Denver as "Dusty" and Forrest Tucker as "Mr. Callahan", the assistant to the leader of a wagon train and his irascible boss. .Its cast was made up of nearly identical character roles as Gilligan's Island.
  • The New Adventures of Gilligan was a Filmation-produced animated remake that aired on ABC Saturday Morning from September 7, 1974 to September 4, 1977 for 24 episodes (16 installments airing in 1974–75 and 8 new ones combined with repeats in 1975–76).^ This is one of the many pilot episodes that sold, just didn't get aired (Such as Captain Jack, which was renamed Leave it to Beaver), instead they altered the show drastically, replacing actors, characters, and the theme song.

    ^ Info: Gargoyles is an acclaimed American animated series created by Greg Weisman, produced by Greg Weisman and Frank Paur and aired from October 24, 1994 to February 15, 1997.

    ^ DC Comics' flagship character in the same way they had successfully produced Batman: The Animated Series.

    .The voices were done by the original cast except for Ginger, voiced by Jane Webb, and Mary Ann, voiced by Jane Edwards.^ FYI: Some years ago a poll asked men who'd they rather date - Mary Ann or Ginger.

    .An additional character was Snubby the Monkey, voiced by Lou Scheimer.
  • In a 1978 made-for-television movie, Rescue from Gilligan's Island, the castaways did successfully leave the island, but had difficulty reintegrating into society.^ While the Castaways attempt to rehabilitate him, he ends up leaving the island, accompanied by Mrs. Howell's pearl necklace, Mr. Howell's wallet, and Ginger's earrings!

    ^ ABC also did a pathetic job of promoting the show and given the popularity of the new Trek movie this summer, there was definitely a market for a space adventure show on television.

    .During a reunion cruise on the first Christmas after their rescue, fate intervened and they found themselves wrecked on the same island at the end of the film.^ Like many TV series, I've sometimes found that they try to find their 'footing' during the first half of the first season before it gets any better.

    It starred the original cast except for Tina Louise, who refused to participate and was replaced as Ginger by Judith Baldwin. The plot involved Soviet agents seeking a memory disc from a spy satellite that landed on the island and facilitated their rescue. .Gilligan and the Skipper "rescue" Mary Ann right as she is to marry her longtime fiancé, which contradicts the series where it was established that Mary Ann had no boyfriend after having made up a story about a boyfriend to keep the others from feeling sorry for her.
  • In a 1979 sequel, The Castaways on Gilligan's Island, they were rescued once again, and the Howells converted the island into a getaway resort, with the other five castaways as "silent partners". Ginger was again played by Judith Baldwin.^ I haven't made up my mind about this series yet.

Television and video distribution

.United Artists Television originally produced the series (in association with Phil Silvers's Gladysya Productions and CBS) and subsequently distributed it in syndication.^ The Riches is produced by FOX Television Studios in association with Maverick Television and distributed by the FX Television Network, where it has been given a 13 episode initial order.

^ Info: In 1992, CBS premiered Forever Knight, a stylish and sexy television series.

^ It originally aired from October 30, 1999 to February 26, 2000, and was produced by Avi Arad and distributed by 20th Century Fox Television.

UATV became MGM/UA Television in 1981 after United Artists merged with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
In 1986, Turner Broadcasting System attempted to purchase MGM/UA, but after amassing huge debt, sold most of the acquisition back, but kept the company's considerable library. This library, which would be managed by Turner Entertainment included the pre-1986 MGM film and television library, the pre-1950[13][14] Warner Bros. films and short subjects, and US rights to much of the RKO Pictures library — in addition to this series.
Some years later, after Turner merged with Time Warner, Warner Bros. Television became responsible for the show's distribution, and continues to do so today. The Silvers estate (successor-in-interest to Gladysya) retained its share of ownership (both Turner and the Silvers family now share the show's copyright).
The entire series has been released on DVD through corporate sibling Warner Home Video, and online via AOL's IN2TV service. .The program is virtually unknown in the United Kingdom — only thirteen episodes were ever shown there.^ Now people are saying there are only eleven episodes with three to be shown outside the U.S. Are we missing five or three?
