Gilligan’s Island: Part 3, Finally Rescued?

February 6, 2006
Because of the popularity of Gilligan's Island, Sherwood Schwartz tried to sell a tv-film called Rescue from Gilligan's Island -- without success. The three networks were not interested in the least. Along the way, Saturday-morning animation company Filmation repeatedly asked Sherwood to let them do an animated version of the show. Though it seemed a natural, he was reluctant because he felt it weakened his chances of selling a full-scale reunion movie. But, after being repeatedly rebuffed by the networks, he eventually settled for the animated return to television -- with the understanding that he would have a great deal of creative involvement. So, in 1974, The New Adventures of Gilligan debuted on ABC. Most of the original cast provided their voices, the exception being Mary Ann and Ginger. Tina Louise, who had originated the role of Ginger, had wanted to distance herself from the silly comedy so she did not participate. The animators changed Ginger's hair color from red to blonde-white to avoid any possibility of Louise suing them for using her image.
