Gilligan's Island

Weekdays at 6 AM
Sundays at 9 AM & 9:30 AM & 2 PM & 2:30 PM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
After departing from Honolulu on a three-hour tour, the two-man crew and five passengers aboard the S.S. Minnow find themselves swept away in a violent tropical storm. Becoming marooned on an uncharted island, the castaways—the bumbling Gilligan (Bob Denver), the stalwart Skipper (Alan Hale, Jr.), the super-rich Howells (Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer), the movie star Ginger (Tina Louise), the Professor (Russell Johnson) and girl-next-door Mary Ann (Dawn Wells)—make the most of their adventuresome new life while perpetually concocting botched attempts at escape.
