Gilligan's Island Trivia

Did you know that the "Skipper" and "Professor" characters had names?

As I noted in an earlier blog, I love trivia.

So here is another one of my favorite questions.  Actually there are a couple of parts to this one.

On the TV show  Gilligan's Island, What were the character names for "The Skipper" and The Professor"?

Yes, the characters actually had names.

By the way, it was never stated in the show whether or not Gilligan was a first or last name.  The shows creator, Sherwood Schwartz, said he thought it should have been Willie Gilligan but that was never part of the show.

Remember, no using the internet.  This totally useless information has to be stuck somewhere back in the dark crowded spaces of your own cranium.

Good luck!

I'm sure I watched every episode, but don't recall the names.  Did someone come to the island and recognize them by name?

Have you ever been to the island?  It is the bomb and we go once a year to relax.

Bob...

I know the Skipper was "Jonas Grumby" and I know that the professor had a name but I'm drawing a blank.

I am sure I have seen every episode as well, and I had to call my mom, but they are...

Skipper Jonas Grumby   &   Professor Roy Hinkley

Richard: you are well on your way to becoming a trivia king!

Randall: The names were only mentioned in the first episode.  I think I might have been to the island somewhere in my mind isn't located near the island of "Margaritaville"? :-)

I never knew that. I watched the reruns everyday growing up. When you are little you really think that they may get off the island in this episode!-Dinah

OK Bob...

What was agent 99's real name on Get Smart?

-Richard W.

I thought I knew this show inside and out.. but I do not know either of their names...  All I can think of, when I see Gilligan, is Maynard G. Krebbs..... (am I showing my age?)

btw. Richard... I think agent 99's real name was never revealed. There was an episode where he called her Christine, or Christina... but that turned out to be a red-herring, it wasn't really her name.

Congrats to

Richard - yes Jonas Grumby was the skippers name.  Good question BTW on agent 99.  I have no idea.  I could cheat and look it up on the internet.

Ed- Way too much time on your hands LOL.  You are correct on both.  The professors name ws Roy Hinckley.

 

Do you all remember that they changed the words to the theme song?  The first season it said .... "and the rest"

Season 2 and later it said ..."The profesor and Mary Ann"

Posted by Bob Southard, e-Pro - Cobb, Cherokee, North Fulton (Atlas Realty Service, LLC) almost 10 years ago

Actually Bob, I thought it was the other way around....

But that was a long time ago.....

Sometimes my memory serves me (in my best interest!) LOL
