00gil seas 3


This is the third 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 opening sequence was slightly altered with the wreck of the Minnow laying flat instead of diagonally, and Madame Swee Lo's was attributed in the closing credits as providing Natalie Schafer's wardrobe. Several episodes started before the opening theme and were also expanded to feature more of the main characters in the plots, and more dream sequences were created. The season began September 12, 1966 and lasted thirty episodes until the season ended on April 17, 1967. At the time, Gilligan's Island was going into a Fourth Season, but it was removed from the CBS schedule at the last minute to make room for the long-running series, "Gunsmoke." Sherwood Schwartz had plans for more episodes to be made at the time of cancellation.
The original opening for Season 3 was different than syndicated airings. When the show went into syndication, the third opening sequence used the same as in Season 2, the only difference being a closer-up angle of the S.S. Minnow. The original opening remains unavailable.
