Actor Russell Johnson, best known as Professor in the 1960s TV sitcom "Gilligan's Island," died Thursday, his agent said. Johnson was 89.

Johnson played the iconic role of Professor Roy Hinkley, whose scientific schemes to get the castaways rescued were always foiled by Gilligan's bumbling.

Edit: The two immediately preceding posts came in while I had the tab open, so this is a response to the first mention of Mary Ann. Weird.

Huh, that never occurred to me. Did boys in a particular age bracket have a favorite female castaway, as girls had a favorite Bolt brother? :) Or was Ginger just eye candy? I can't remember her personality, or even whether she had one.

Tina was a ditzy blonde stereotype, and yes, some boys did/do pant in private agony, afraid to raise their hands (or heads!). :)
