18 out of 18. it seemed to get harder to remember from question 11 to the end because they didn't play the entire song every episode like that. one just had to go through the answers with the lyrics to get them.

Finally - I nailed it, which is good, because I actually perform this song (with acoustic guitar) when I play at local bars & such. Knowing the lyrics can be a good thing.

I only missed the first one. I thought it was "sit right down" when it's "sit right back." Otherwise, I didn't do too bad.

18/18. Soooo easy!

When "Gilligan" was first syndicated in the late 60's and my younger sister and I were still kids in the early 70's, I always thought in the ending portion of the theme they sang:
"No fog!
No light!
No motor car...."
and then after the line "It’s primitive as can be." I'd say "65!," "66!," or "67!" As I was reading the credits I would notice the year the episode was made and stick that into the song.

And then my younger sister put her own take on the last verse:
"So join us here each day, my friend,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven natural fruit juices,
Here on Gilligan's Isle!"
Of course, in syndication the reruns were shown practically every day, and the "seven natural fruit juices" came from an early 70's Hawaiian Punch commercial. Clever!

Your sister was very smart. I hope that she went on to use her literary talent.

Well, when my nephew was born in 1994 she *did* try to get an original story she would tell him published, but nothing came of it.
Wendy57 Kramden62 30 days ago
At least she tried. That’s the important thing. The “path” never taken is the one you regret the most.
Kramden62 Wendy57 29 days ago
Very true.

What I meant to say was that my nephew was born in 1994 but she tried to get her bedtime story to him published in 1996. Still, she tried.
Wendy57 Kramden62 29 days ago
Yes she did. 😊
