Summary[edit | edit source]

This is the second of the three seasons of the classic 1964 to 1967 TV sitcom, Gilligan's Island, about seven castaways, who have wrecked their boat on a deserted island. The season began September 16, 1965 and was marked by a number of changes, most notably being filmed in color, a choice by Sherwood Schwartz to show off the series locale. Production also moved to save costs from Hawaii to CBS Studios (now Columbia Studios) in Los Angeles, California, which had a huge lagoon built on the local parking lot. The Professor and Mary Ann were also added to the opening theme (per Bob Denver's request), and the Howell's hut was rebuilt to one with double doors and twin beds rather than the two-room hut of Season 1.
