The New Adventures of Gilligan

The New Adventures of Gilligan is basically the same plot as the original sitcom Gilligan’s Island. It ran for two seasons (24 episodes) and saw, like the sitcom, a first mate and his skipper set out on a three-hour tour with five passengers, A science professor, a rich couple, a movie star and a farm girl. All of the passengers and the ship crew get stranded on an uncharted desert isle. Facing troubles throughout the series. Gilligan befriends a monkey named Stubby.

The cartoon series featured all of the actors from the original show, with the exception of Tina Louise, who was determined to distance herself from the role of Ginger Grant (the animated Ginger became a platinum blonde in case Louise objected to Filmation using her image), and Dawn Wells, who was on the road in a play and was unavailable (Jane Webb voiced both Ginger and Mary Ann; she was credited as Jane Edwards for the latter). Added to the cast was a sidekick for Gilligan, Snubby The Monkey.

Much like other Filmation series at the time, many of the episodes concluded with Skipper and Gilligan talking about whatever lesson they had learned that day.

Like the original series and most Saturday morning animated series of the era, The New Adventures of Gilligan contained an adult laugh track.
