Can you explain it to us?

The Barbie "family" included her boyfriend "Ken," and her little sister "Skipper." Check out any search engine for Barbie and Skipper to see photos of the doll.

15/15! Way too easy! Bonus Question: What is the Skipper's real name?
Jonas Grumby.
Speaking of real names, you evidently don't know Micky's real name. You said on the "Wool Hat" page, that he went by his real last name on Circus Boy: Braddock. That's NOT his real last name. His real last name is Dolenz. What made you think it was Braddock? That was his stage name. He was named after his father, {who was also an actor:} GEORGE MICHAEL DOLENZ.
If' you've seen HEAD, {have you?} Then you will remember the scene where Micky is in the desert with the Coca-Cola machine. At one point you can hear a sort of spooky sounding voice saying twice: "Quiet, isn't it? George Michael. Dolenz. Then I want to say it "segways" into "Can You Dig It?" {But I could be wrong about the song or if there's any song at all after hearing his name.}
P.S. For the record: The Professor's real name is Roy Hinkley.
Sorry Stephanie! Any idea why Micky's last name on Circus Boy was Braddock? I remember the Coke machine in the desert!
I honestly have no idea. I want to say I heard Micky say that he didn't even know why the name change. I want to say he said it was the studio's idea, but I may be wrong. I'll have to check.
I checked on Wikipedia: "Dolenz started his show business career in 1956, starring in Circus Boy under the the name Micky Braddock." No mention why the name change.

You got 14 out of 15 ----------------It's okay. The castaways never found the answer they were looking for, either.

13 out of 15. I had no idea Skipper had a sister and no idea who was a guest star on The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island. I have seen every Gilligan's Island tv show and Rescue From Gilligan's Island, but the other two movies were not good so I seen them only once to remember that David Rubreckt ho starred in Supermarket Sweep and also was either a writer or producer of Small Wonder was in The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island.

I made the same mistake about Skipper, She was Barbie Doll's little sister. That's what they, MeTV were asking for. You know, Barbie doll, made by Mattel? There have been many, many different versions of her over the years. Skipper is the name of Barbie's Sister. NOT The Skipper or Captain Jonas Grumby, on Gilligans Island.

Rubreckt was Thurston Howell IV, either a son or nephew who appeared because Jim Baccus could only do a cameo at his age. Bonus Question: Who played Ginger in the GI movies?
It's David Ruprecht.
As for who played Ginger, two actresses did:
You're right and Baldwin was the second movie as well!
Missed the Globetrotters question, never saw it. I do know Bob Denver's wife was in it as well.
