What are your favorite episodes of Gilligan's Island if you were one of those people who happened to like that show?

Asked by Bluefreedom (22834 points ) January 15th, 2009

I was inspired to ask this question after seeing and answering Snoopy’s recent question of what everyone’s favorite Brady Bunch episodes were.

Here’s a bit of trivia too:

Whenever the question has been asked, “Ginger or Mary Ann”, it’s been shown that Mary Ann is consistently chosen over Ginger each time.

Some of my favorite episodes:

1. So Sorry, My Island Now – a Japanese sailor still thinks it is WWII and captures the island.

2. Up At Bat – Gilligan gets bitten by a bat and he thinks he’s turning into a vampire and starts having dreams that he is Dracula

3. And Then There Were None – the castaways start disappearing and Gilligan thinks he is a Dr. Jekyll – Mr. Hyde and is making all the others disappear.

4. Smile, You’re On Mars Camera – a Mars lander accidentally crashes on the island and the castaways are mistaken for life on Mars

I loved the one with the giant spider in the cave! That spider was sooo cheesey!

The other one I love was when that surfer dude washed up on shore! C;assic

I always wondered, how did the radio batteries last so long? Maybe the professor made batteries out of coconut milk?

And remember when he built that stationary bike out of wood and rode it to charge up the batteries and stuff?

@forestGeek that’s the first episode that came to my mind. Love that one. (giant spider)

I remember the episode when Gilligan had to marry a rather large female tribe member. Also the episode when Gilligan became invisible.

I loved that show! I can’t pick a favorite. I remember being very young and crying because of a dream episode in which Gilligan died. Before I realized it was a dream, I was so sad!

Remember when Gilligan was a tribal leader and his his head was on a totem? Was that the same episode where he had to marry the tribal lady?

@forestGeek – Remember his headhunter word? “pulee-see-muh-gumbah”

My favorite was when MaryAnne thought she was Ginger. I had a crush on Mary Anne and seeing her all sexed up got me all hot and bothered.

@forestGeek. One of the episodes you described was called “High Man on the Totem Pole” but I’m not sure about the other one. It might be “Slave Girl”.

Here is a total list of Gilligan’s Island episodes.

That cheesy spider episode was one of my favorites too. Or the one with them all being cavemen. That was pretty cool. I haven’t seen any of those shows for ages.

In the distant past I did watch the show.
Cant say I remember much about the episodes, but it was ok for it’s time.

i always choose mary-ann over ginger! she was sooo adorable.

my favourite episode was the one where gilligan has like a temporary memory loss after getting knocked on the head by a radio (i think?). oh man there are so many episodes i liked though, i can’t even think of an absolute favourite. i loved the professor though, so whichever episodes he was most prominent in are probably my favourites.
