Honestly, that was one of my favorite shows. I wonder where Ginger is these days...
More depressing news
another piece of my childhood gone. Horrible.
Goodbye, little buddy. Rest in peace.
That's too bad. He was with me on many a lonesome afternoon home alone from school.
Sad. As a kid I always had this sense that TV and movie stars were immortal. Now I see my favorites dropping like flies as the years go by.
Rest In Peace, little buddy. May your afterlife be filled with coconut pies and Mary Ann memories.
that show is cool
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour, a three hour tour
The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
the Minnow would be lost; the Minnow would be lost.
The ship took ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
with Gilligan, the Skipper too,
the Millionaire, and his Wife,
the Movie Star, the Professor and Mary Ann,
here on Gilligan's Isle.
ah man, little buddy is gone.
that was one of my all-time favorite shows,
i use to watch it when i was a kid after school...
Well in a way old TV stars are immortal. I'm sure you will be able to watch Gilligan's Island on TV for a while.
Beautifully said - and I thought the very same thing when I read that he had died.
I really enjoyed "Gilligans Island." My prayers go out to the family and friends of Bob Denver. May he rest in peace.
I'd buy that for a dollar
RIP Little Buddy
mmm....Ginger and Mary Ann...
Gilligan had the good life...
May he have a better death...
He babysat me many an afternoon too. I wish you a gentle and pleasant journey.
Couldn't read the words to the song in the post above, had to sing it, couldn't read it at all. Weird.
Just read he died in my home town, Winston Salem, at the hospital that is my biggest account. So close too.
I don't know if he ever fully embraced the Gilligan role, but I hope he knows why he's so well remember for it. You were more than Gilligan in life, but will live forever as the bumbling but lovable character that so many of us grew up with. You will be missed.
Thank you for the smiles and the laughs Bob Denver.
I guess it's time to forgive him for Far Out Space Nuts.
Rest in peace, those were funny times after school ...
Nice things you left in this world.
So this is the tale of our castaways,
they're here for a long, long time.
They'll have to make the best of things,
it's an uphill climb.
The first mate and his skipper too,
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable,
in the tropic island nest.
No phones, no lights, no motor cars,
not a single luxury.
Like Robinson Crusoe,
it's primitive as can be.
So join us here each week my friend,
you're sure to get a smile.
From seven stranded Castaways,
Here on Gilligan's Isle.
I used to watch that show every day from the age of like 5-10. I still catch it every now and then. Hands down one of the greatest shows ever on television. One of my favorites is the one where the monkey is throwing the plastic explosive plates everywhere. So funny.....
The sad thing is that while he was typecast in that role he should of been a Millionaire but they never signed big royalty contracts back then.
do they have Gilligan's Island on DVD?? I miss that show ...
I don't think he's dead. He's just lost, somewhere on the island.
And I still expect him to guest star on Lost's next season.
Gonna miss Bob Denver. Gilligan's Island was a very good show...
This was the absolute 1st show I've ever seen on TV. My mother had an old black & white Studio Zenith TV. I was 5 years old coming home from grade 1, here in Toronto. I remember laughing so hard, feeling sorry when Gilligan was left out of things or even teased. That character showed me how sensitive yet resolute some people can be. And I too watch it by myself. Any time on cable I see that show I watch it to the end, no matter what, and even sing the song. I've been late to hang with friends when I was a kid & even late for so many of my past jobs as a young adult; never regretting.
They dont make TV shows with such diversity in characters anymore; and if so very few & far between the years.
I actually learned my first big word watching that show. Applause! Because my moms' Zenith TV had an Applause light bulb on the top right front corner of the set, which actually came on while I was watching it. Yes the TV only supported UHF signal. I asked my dad what that meant & he told me to look it up in the dictionary.
Mr. Bob Denver, I applaud you, as Gilligan.
Cheers little buddie, may your cloud in heaven be an island of paradise!
Sad to see you go
