Odd Facts Known by Few

  • After starring in 84 episodes of "Gilligan's Island", actor Bob Denver reprised the role of "Willy Gilligan" several times. He voiced the role in the cartoons "The New Adventures Of Gilligan" and "Gilligan's Planet". He appeared in live action as Gilligan in the tv movies "Rescue from Gilligan's Island", "The Castaways on Gilligan's Island", and "The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island". He also appeared in one episode each of the television shows "The New Gidget", "ALF", "Baywatch", and "Meego" as Gilligan.
  • Actor Hoke Howell, who originated the role of Dud Wash, was passed over this episode because this was the year that CBS launched "Gilligan's Island," and they wanted to use Bob Denver's appearance to promote their new show.
