Here is a frightful tale of a television show that caught the attention of millions of viewers. 51 years ago on September 26, 1964, Gilligan’s Island aired on national television. The show had solid ratings and was a favorite to many. It only had 98 episodes spanning over three seasons. The cast and crew expected to have a fourth season but the show was replaced by another, Gunsmoke, in 1967. The crew never did get off the island and as far as viewers know they’re still there. In its three year run, Gilligan’s Island has a lot of little known facts and secrets. Here are some of them.
