Shall we say a fond farewell to Russell Johnson, 'The Professor' from TV's "Gilligan's Island"?

Asked by ibstubro (10587 points ) January 16th, 2014

I remember him better as a frequent guest actor on TV, dince I came to loath ”Gilligan”. From the ”Twilight Zone” to ”Newhart” he seemed a better actor that what he was ever given credit for.

RIP, ‘The Professor’, Russell Johnson. Ginger and MaryAnn are the only members yet to join the rest of the cast.

I have about 4 Gilligans Island DVDs. I loved that show too.

@talljasperman He and Ginger so should have hooked up.

@Coloma I cannot prevent them dropping like…er…well, socks. They die, I try to make note, give people a chance to mark the death or post a tribute to a celebrity that might have made a difference in their life.

Don’t tell anybody, but I kind of had it for the professor. He might be the reason I have a thing for attractive brainy guys.

@Jonesn4burgers Are you saying you actually have had the opportunity to meet attractive and brainy guys? Where are you hiding them, share would you! lol
I liked the professor too but really, the Howells were so funny. They really made the show.
