The Professor Is No Longer With Us
Gilligan's Isle Professor

 11:06 pm on Jan 16, 2014 (gmt 0)

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.

As a young teen I so wanted to be the Professor and date Mary Ann...

Left out that Johnson died on an island (his home)... but it wasn't a deserted island (some 24,000 people live there). I leaned toward Tina...

Ginger (Tina) in her younger years. Mary Ann (Dawn) in her older years.

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!). :)
