Can you tell the difference between dreams and reality on Gilligan’s Island?

Were these robots, secret agents, vampires and pirates real or imagined?

Though the premise of Gilligan’s Island forced it to take place in one location, the show used plenty of creative workarounds to keep things interesting. All kinds of people visited the island and the professor's gadgets were always fascinating — if a little farfetched.

The best way the classic sitcom switched things up was through dream sequences. Not that Gilligan’s Island needed a dream sequence to bend the rules of reality.

We've collected these far-out scenes from the show. Can you guess if they really happened to the characters or were just from someone's imagination?

I loved those dopey dreams! They were better than the actual show. I still laugh when I see Mr. and Mrs, Howell dancing that goofy go-go after that dignified waltz in the Cinderella dream!!!

When I watch Gilligan's Island, I'd better pay more attention to the show rather than the eye candy that is Tina Louise (my personal favorite) and Dawn Wells.

10/12 Distinguishing reality from a dream is hard enough. Yet alone on GI.

It wasn't hard at all. W/ exception of one or two photos, all of the "Dream Sequences," had the castaways dressed in costume.

Really! They could have at least tried to make it more challenging.

As you probably know AnnieM, when METV gives us quizzes, that's how they usually role. Rarely do they give us challenging ones. Although I will say in their defense, over the past few months or so, they have been peppering their quizzes with harder questions. Usually, when we fans cry and clamor for a challenging quiz, we have our fellow METVers to thank for suppling us with them.
