Thanks, but I'll blame the drugs.

Oh come on. What about the straight guy who needs to pretend to be gay so that he can share an apartment from two hot chicks?  Or the one about the blended family, and incipient sexual tension between the oldest "siblings"? Or the one about the witch who trades her life of magic and competitive politics in her magical world for a life in suburbia, and the whacky hijinks that ensue?  Or the castaways who continue to dump on the one guy who continues to save their lives, again and again, but their own goofiness continues to foil their attempts to escape said island--despite being apparently able to build any damn thing out of local materials and yet a BOAT seems to escape their capabilities?

I blame all that acid.

How about the effects of all those Saturday mornings spent watching the fine products of the Sid and Marty Krofft organization, eh?  Lidsville?  H.R. Pufnstuf?  Sigmund and the Sea Monsters?  And the Bugaloos?  (seriously, look up a Bugaloos clip on YouTube, any Bugaloos clip, and you'll know there had to be some serious drug use involved in making that show.)

It was a completely different era.

I mean, take a look at Petticoat Junction.  Three young, attractive women with no visible means of support living in a hotel on an isolated railroad spur that has absolutely no other reason to exist?  A 'hotel' run by an older woman and a creepy 'Uncle Joe"?  I'm not sure you could put that show on TV these days.

HR Pufnstuf is the closest thing to a bad trip that anyone who doesn't drop will ever know.

I will take your word for that.  And -- I loved those shows, especially the Bugaloos, and I had absolutely no clue.  None.  Are there any 8 year olds these days as innocent and naive as I was?

That hotel had a slow but steady stream of travelling salesmen going in and out. And speaking of in and out, those three girls could have easily made a few bob off said salesman without even getting out of bed.

I always had a theory about Mr. Ed that the whole show was about Wilbur being a schizophrenic who had delusional hallucinations that manifested themselves in the form of a talking horse.

I thought it was incredibly depressing when I was about 5. I watched every week, because I wanted to see the kid get home. And he never did, and nothing ever made a lick of sense. It was just this poor kid stuck in a cave with some guy who had a head the size of a house, and pretty much every stick and rock and whatever was alive, and some were on his side, and most were against him.

Or there's this family of monsters who live in a creepy house with man-eating pets.  And they all feel sorry for their daughter because she's pretty.  And OSHA never visits the funeral home where the father works, otherwise they'd have really interesting questions about his scars & the bolts in his neck.

Bob Denver was in some bad movie years after the show ended and he went off on a monolog about being stranded on a desert island for 20 years and how the genius professor could make a telephone from two coconuts but couldn't fix a stupid hole in a boat.  Then Alan Hale showed up and said they had to leave right away for a three hour tour.  That was the only part of the movie worth watching.  No, I can't remember the name of the movie, or even what the hell it was about.

there is an old b&w grade B horror film (Roger Corman's "Attack of the Crab Monsters" 1957) in which The Professor from Gilligan's Island plays the role of a Professor Scientist. You could cut & paste parts if you wanted.

On that note, am I the only one who think that Annette was way, way out of Frankie's league? Now Frankie and Snooki, that I could see. Or Frankie and a cocaine-ridden stripper with three children from two known fathers and half a dozen who avoided the blood test. Or Frankie and a scraggly haired old homeless woman who sits on an overturned milk carton tunelessly playing a plastic flute and verbally abuses passerby who don't leave tips.

If I ever have kids I will psychologically torment them with old episodes of Family Affair and Bewitched.

And why did they call it Gilligans Island? He was just the 1st mate. Why not Minnow Island or Skipper Island or ad nauseum.

Don't forget the show about a family that blasts off into space with a robot and a pedo. They get lost because space travel is so shoot from the hip planning.

Or the show with a nun who could fly because of her hat.

"My Mother the Car" Nuff said

The inept secret agent with a shoe phone.

The dolphin that helps out catching thieves and thugs.

It also seems strange that a rescue crew couldn't be dispatched to find them.

I once saw an episode of Wild Wild West with Alan Hale as a guest star.  At the end James West asked Alan Hale's character what he was planning on doing next.  He said something about going on a cruise in the South Pacific and they  played a line from the Gilligan's Island theme song as they rolled the credits.

I don't believe I saw Alan Hale anywhere other than Gilligan's Island besides that one episode of WWW.  And I don't think I saw Bob Denver in anything else besides Dobie Gillis.  And the rest of the cast?  I think they're still stranded on the island.
