.....N.Y. Times obit on Bob Denver:

"The Denver and (Alan) Hale interaction was modeled on that of Laurel and Hardy, with Mr. Hale focusing exasperated reactions into the camera, just as Oliver hardy had done."

"Gilligan's Island" was never based in reality, as evidenced by clean and neat appearance of seven castaways marooned on a desert island. It was one last shot at vaudeville, where audience members provided their own rim shot. You laughed, then you moved on. Quickly.
