Russell Johnson appeared at a panel with Rex Reason (who he worked with on "This Island Earth") and Kim Catrell (who was just on the same panel for some reason) at the second MST3K convention (which happened between the Comedy Central and SciFi versions of the show just after the movie came out).

A kid steps up to microphone and asked Rex Reason how it felt to be inside the "giant bong," or the tubes that he stood in.  (In MST3K the movie, Crow asks "I bet it feels like he's inside a bong" and that's where the kid got the question.)

Well, Rex Reason had no idea what a bong even was.  So trying to be helpful, the Professor leans across and tries to explain.  Well, the audience realized that the Professor knows what a bong is and there was a huge laugh throughout the entire audience.  Russell turned beet red... probably the biggest blush I have ever seen anyone have.  It was extremely hilarious and I'll never forget it.

If I couldn't find a way to make Gilligan's death look accidental, I'd just creep into his hut one night and bash his head in with a rock.

AtomPeepers: I had a chance to meet Russell Johnson a few times in the 90's. I worked in the high stakes game of Sci-Fi/TV convention security, and he  did the rounds. He was very nice to the fans, witty as hell, and an amazing bartender IRL. It's a shame he got so typecast, but it didn't seem to bother him by then anyway. R.I.P.

...watching his Twilight Zone time travel episode tonight. /csb


My favorite story of his is from his book. He tells of an instance in the late 80s when he was buying some stuff at Builders Square in L.A. and the teenage clerk asked him if he was going to fix the radio.
He seemed like a really great man and glad to see that he was at ease with the recognition in his later years.

The professor DID fix the hole!!  They used adhesive but it only worked for a short while and ruined the whole boat.  Gilligan used the same adhesive to fix Ginger's strap on her dress which fell off during the final scene.  You can pause, play and rewind as much as you want but you're not going to see anything good.  Well, you see enough for a 13 year old boy in 1980, but you don't see enough in modern day.


I'm glad someone else here has some knowledge and sense when it comes to Gilligan's Island. :P

Honestly, STOP TALKING ABOUT PATCHING THE HOLE.  This is what's left of the Minnow after Season 1, Episode 8 of the show:

img.fark.net

It's a convoluted story, but basically, Gilligan messed up the glue, which was really strong and elastic at first (causing them to get stuck to the Minnow and rip it apart in several places, thus requiring them to re-glue much more than the original hole) and then turned to dust, causing the entire ship to fly apart at the seams.

Fixing a hole is one thing. Rebuilding the entire ship from damaged scraps without any decent nails, tools, or adhesive is quite another.

A formerly religious friend of me explained to me how you can sing Amazing Grace to the tune of the Gilligan's Island theme.

Not aware of that one...

This morbid old poem by Dickinson works well sung to the tune.

BECAUSE I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school where children played
At wrestling in a ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.

Since then 't is centuries; but each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.

Alan Hale Jr., Bob Denver, Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Dawn Wells, Tina Louise, and Russell Johnson.
Just goes to show that a really good cast can make even a badly underwritten show worth watching.  This show lives on for one reason:  a great cast.


I know Alan Hale Jr. loved being the Skipper, especially for the kids.  It just made him happy.
I also heard some awesome stories about how Jim Backus would be approached by gold digging hos in public thinking he was really as rich as his character, and how he would play it off.  wish I could remember them.
