About This QuizJust sit right back and take a quiz about a fateful trip. Even though it only ran for three seasons, "Gilligan's Island" is one of television's most enduring shows. Think you remember the adventures of Gilligan and the rest of the castaways well enough to ace this quiz? Let's find out!
S. S. Minnow
As the catchy theme song tells us, "Five passengers set sail that day for a 3 hour tour, a 3 hour tour ... if not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost."
S. S. Gilligan
While you might misremember the Professor as a college professor, he's actually a high school science teacher. He spends a great deal of his time building inventions, including a generator, record player and telegraph.
The castaways' full names are Mary Ann Summers, Jonah "The Skipper" Grumby, Thurston Howell III, Eunice "Lovey" Howell, Professor Roy Hinkley and Ginger Grant. We never learn Gilligan's full name. Some of the show's conceptual material referred to him as Willy Gilligan, but he is only ever known as Gilligan on the show.
"Gilligan Meets Jungle Boy" features a very young Kurt Russell. He can't communicate verbally beyond repeating the last few words he hears. This poses a problem for the castaways when he uses the hot-air balloon they build in the episode to leave the island. He's unable to tell anyone about the stranded castaways.
In "Don't Bug The Mosquitoes," a rock band known as "The Mosquitoes" visit the island for some peace and quiet. The castaways devise a plan to annoy The Mosquitoes so much that the band will want to leave and take the castaways home. The Mosquitoes are so threatened by how good the girl group is, though, that they leave the castaways stranded when they depart the island.
