The small charter boat Minnow had been on a
sight-seeing party when it was caught in a storm
and wrecked on the shore of an uncharted South
Pacific island. Marooned together on the island
were: the good-natured skipper; a somewhat blustery
millionaire and his vacuous wife; a sexy movie star
named Ginger; a high-school science teacher known
as The Professor; a sweet, naive country girl named
Mary Ann; and Gilligan. Gilligan was the boat's
sole crew member, aside from the skipper. He was
well meaning but inept in his attempts to find
means of returning to civilization. As a result,
and perhaps even more because this simple-minded
farce became a top hit, the little band was
stranded on that island for three full seasons.
