Can you match the Gilligan's Island plot to the episode?

Choose carefully, some plots seem to match multiple episode titles!

So many attempts to call for help, so many attempts to get off the island and so many plots unfolded on Gilligan's Island. It's safe to say, any attempt to get off the island was fair game, as plenty of silly, courageous and sometimes otherwordly plots took place across the show's 99 episodes. 

Can you match the correct episode title to the storylines given below? Take our quiz and find out!

Plus, check out our new Gilligan's Island apparel from the MeTV Store! 

  1. Fearing for their lives, the castaways attempt to disarm a missile that has landed on the island in a Pentagon testing sequence called Operation Powder Keg, that was heard over the radio. What they don’t know is the missile ISN’T equipped with explosives!
  2. In what episode does Mr. Howell attempt to cheer up Ginger, who missed her debut performance as a lead role in a play, by letting her be the lead role in the island-version of the play?
  3. In which episode is it up to Gilligan to release the rest of the castaways, who have been taken prisoner by a headhunter (and not the one the Skipper portrayed!)?
  4. The castaways try to get off the island with a pair of cosmonauts (via submarine) in which of these space-oriented episodes?
  5. Gilligan becomes rich, granting him access to the Howell’s country club in which episode?
  6. What relationship-specific episode shows Mr. and Mrs. Howell arguing, while trying to positively depict their 20 years of marriage, a period that Mr. Howell calls “harmony and bliss”?
  7. In which episode, does the Skipper hit Gilligan in the mouth, mysteriously turning him into a functioning radio receiver?
  8. The castaways think there’s a burglar on the island after the supply hut is raided. The Skipper tries to convince the others there’s a far more spooky and otherworldly reason for the disappearance, but the real culprit turns out to be a monkey!
  9. While bowling with the Skipper, Gilligan is struck by lightning in which of the following episodes?
  10. Which episode results in Ginger having a doppelgänger that leaves the island in her boat, without the castaways?

Can you match the Gilligan's Island plot to the episode?

This GILLIGAN'S ISLAND Theme
Song is from the Original Pilot
which has Sherwood Schwartz
singing in Calypso .
John Gabriel played the Professor instead of Russell
Johnson and the other two
Characters were Bunny and
Ginger. Kit Smythe and Nancy McCarthy played the other 2
Characters.Dawn Wells and
Tina Louise were not in the
Pilot film.
I am happy that Professor Roy Hinkley (Russell Johnson) wasn't. eccentric like Professor
Pepperwimkle (Phillips Ted) on
The Adventures of Superman.

3/10 Back when I was watching this I don't think I even knew the episodes had names, much less that in the future I would be taking quizzes on a computer linked to the world.

I have one problem with the show. The professor knows how to build a radio out of coconuts, but doesn't know how to fix a hole in a boat
UnicornPoop garibaldi 29 days ago
He couldn't have fixed the boat because of the fact that the boat was destroyed in an early episode! And even if he had, would you want to ride a boat threw shark infested waters?

I am happy that the Gilligan's Island
Theme Song was CHANGED from
"And The Rest" To "The Professor
And Mary Ann".
Bob Denver wanted the theme song
Changed on Gilligan's Island.
On Gilligan's Island and GOMER Pyle USMC the Casting Directors Made The Right
Decision when they cast
The Following Characters:
GILLIGAN'S ISLAND
Mary Ann Summers:
Dawn Wells
Professor Roy Hinkley:
Russell Johnson
GOMER Pyle USMC
Cpl Boyle:Roy Stuart
Lou Ann POOVIE: Elizabeth MacRae
Also Skip Young was perfect as
Wally Plumstead on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet and Neil J Schwartz was perfect as Bag Zombroski
On Happy Days.

I heard somewhere that Carroll O
Connor (Archie Bunker) was considered for the role of the
Skipper and Dabney Coleman was
Considered for the role of the
Professor.
Was that singer Jackie DeShannon
Singing for Mary Ann Summers Dawn Wells in the song You Need
Me by The Honeybees?
The Carroll O'Connor and Dabney Coleman references were made in the MeTV Story:

Personally, I'm very happy with the choices they made for the entire cast. Couldn't imagine it any other way.

That CBS Intro to it's color TV
Shows is in honor of CBS for
Canceling a Wonderful Show
Called Gilligan's Island even
Though GI was doing great in
The ratings.
Gilligan's Island did two episodes where Gilligan and
Mr Howell dreamed that Gilligan was Marshall Gilligan
Which I guess was a SPOOF
Of Gunsmoke.
Yes, the two episodes that used dream sequencing to parody Gunsmoke were:
" The Sound of Quacking" and " The Sweepstakes". TSOQ used strong referencing to Gunsmoke,
The Sweepstakes not so much.
