Are these unusual inventions from Green Acres or Gilligan's Island?

Both Mr. Haney and the Professor had some creative ideas.

Green Acres and Gilligan’s Island epitomized the fantastically heightened comedy of the 1960s. They didn't just test the limits of plausibility, they never bothered to set any limits in the first place! And both were better for it.

The many outlandish contraptions, inventions and apparatuses seen on both shows are some of the best examples of the way each series took boring old reality and turned it on its head.

Try to guess if these unusual creations were used on Green Acres or Gilligan's Island!
