Pilot episode[ edit ] The pilot episodetitled "Marooned", was filmed in November The pilot featured seven characters as in the seriesbut only four of the characters—and their associated actors—were carried forward into the series: Because of the three significant character and casting changes between the pilot episode and the first series episode, the pilot was not shown before the series first aired on 26 September The original pilot eventually aired over 29 years later on TBS 16 October The three characters who did not carry forward from the pilot were two secretaries and a high school teacher.
In the pilot, the scientifically inclined Professor was instead a high school teacher played by John Gabriel. Ginger the movie star was still red haired Ginger, but worked as a secretary, played by Kit Smythe.
The pilot's opening and ending songs were two similar Calypso -styled tracks written by John Williams and performed by Sherwood Schwartz impersonating singer Sir Lancelot.
The lyrics of both were quite different from those of the TV series and the pilot's opening theme song was longer. The short scenes during this initial music include Gilligan taking the Howells' luggage to the boat before cast-off and Gilligan attempting to give a cup of coffee to the Skipper during the storm that would ultimately maroon the boat.

No equivalent scene or background information is in the pilot, except for the description of the passengers in the original theme song. Rather than reshooting the rest of the pilot story for broadcast, the show just proceeded on.
The plot thus skips over the topics of the pilot; the bulk of the episode tells of Gilligan and the Skipper setting off on a raft to try to bring help, but unknowingly landing back on the other side of the same island.
The scene with the radio report is one of two scenes that reveal the names of the Skipper Jonas Grumby and the Professor Roy Hinkley ; the names are used in a similar radio report early in the series.
The name Jonas Grumby appears nowhere else in the series except for an episode in which the Maritime Board of Review blames the Skipper for the loss of the ship.
The name Roy Hinkley is used one other time when Mr. Howell introduces the Professor as Roy Huntley and the professor corrects him, to which Mr.#54 on IMDb Top Rated Movies» MOVIES.
