TV show description:
During a relaxing three-hour boat ride off the coast of Hawaii, five passengers and the two-man crew of the S.S. Minnow hit a tropical storm and are stranded on a deserted tropical island.
Working together, the castaways live peacefully and try to find a way off the island. Unfortunately, their chances are usually dashed by the clumsiness of first mate Willie Gilligan (Bob Denver).
The other castaways are Skipper Jonas Grumby (Alan Hale, Jr.), millionaire Thurston Howell III and his wife Eunice “Lovey” Wentworth Howell (Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer), movie star Ginger Grant (Tina Louise), college professor Roy Hinkley (Russell Johnson), and Kansas farmgirl Mary Ann Summers (Dawn Wells).
