Don't get lost. Take this "Gilligan's Island" quiz and test your castaway knowledge.
Here's a blast from the past! "Gilligan's Island" was a sitcom that ran from September 26, 1964 to April 17, 1967, although it seems like it ran longer. The show ran for three seasons and a total of 98 episodes, 99 if you count the pilot. The show ran in black and white in 1964 and 1965 9the first season) and in color for the remainder of the show. But, whether the castaway's adventures were in black and white or color, the show was entertaining and engaging. Viewers couldn't wait for the next week's episode.
The show was about the SS Minnow, but you knew that. You probably also know that the Skipper, played by Alan Hale Jr., and First Mate Gilligan, played by Bob Denver, tried their best to keep the Minnow from running aground on an uncharted island, but thank goodness that bit of land was there or they all would have drowned. Of course, since the island was uncharted, rescuers would never know where to find them... at least for three years. Still, even after all that time, the castaways were in good shape because of their diverse talents of finding food, making shelter, and developing technology well enough to survive.
