Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Bob Denver had already created a brilliant and beloved character in 1959 -- Dobie Gillis’s beatnik buddy, Maynard G. Krebs, in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis -- when he returned to the screen in 1964 as the titular “little buddy” in this TV classic. Yet it was in the role of Gilligan, hapless first mate of the shipwrecked SS Minnow, that he truly made his indelible mark on popular culture. The other of Brady Bunch creator Sherwood Schwartz’s two landmark situation comedies, Gilligan’s Island likewise summed itself up in its opening theme song. To paraphrase Schwartz’s lyrics: In a fateful trip aboard a tiny ship, five passengers set sail for a three-hour cruise and were lost in a storm, crashing on a South Pacific isle where they would remain for three seasons. In addition to Gilligan and the Skipper (Alan Hale), the castaways included millionaire Thurston Howell III and his wife, Lovey (Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer), high school science teacher Roy “The Professor” Hinkley (Russell Johnson), movie star Ginger Grant (Tina Louise), and country girl Mary Ann Summers (Dawn Wells). This first season included 36 episodes, in addition to the series’ unaired pilot, with commentary by Schwartz.

This DVD is about Gilligan's Island and the SS Minnow. There is no way off the island - no escaping the fun.

I absolutely loved this show as a child. I don't watch tv, nor do my children, but Christmas I broke down and bought it. They loved it for 13 hours, then we fell asleep. It was so wonderful watching my children love the show that so enthralled me as a child. I am so thankful that this was put together. I just bought Rescue from Gilligans Island, and in two weeks The Complete Second Season will be sitting in our home. Great DVD!!
