The source of Mr. Roarke's strange powers and the reason behind his island's existence are never really revealed, although it is implied that he is a supernatural force for Good. (Perhaps even one of the PowersThatBe. At one point, he battles [[{{Satan}} The Devil]], played to creepy perfection by Roddy [=McDowall=], who is portrayed as a dapper foil for Mr. Roarke himself, dressed like a photographic negative of Roarke.)

* {{Sidekick}}: SecondPlaceIsForWinners: One episode had Tattoo spend a lot of money trying to win second prize in a jingle contest (a fur coat; not to wear but to give to a pretty lady of his choosing). Unfortunately, he won the early seasons. He was joined later on by Mr. Roarke's goddaughter, Julie, and later replaced by Lawrence the Butler.much grander first prize…[[spoiler:a trip to Fantasy Island.]]

* {{Fanservice}}: Lots and lots of hot guys and pretty girls, all in swimwear/skimpy clothing. Also, Mr. Roarke had a couple of [[ShirtlessScene Shirtless Scenes]]. Believe it or not, Creator/RicardoMontalban was [[HeroicBuild seriously built]] in RealLife. Remember ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''? Yeah. That was ''allll'' him, baby!.

One of Creator/AaronSpelling's biggest hits, the original ''Fantasy Island'' was introduced to viewers via two made-for-TV {{Pilot Movie}}s in 1977. Those went on to spawn a highly popular series that ran on Creator/{{ABC}} from 1978 to 1984. Ricardo Montalban starred as Mr. Roarke, the mysterious, charming, white-suited figure who ran the eponymous island. Assisting Mr. Roarke was his earnest, vertically (and verbally) challenged sidekick, Tattoo (played by Hervé Villechaize, also famous for playing [[Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun Nick Nack]]), who kicked off every episode by running up to the island's bell tower, ringing the bell and loudly exclaiming "Da plane! Da plane!"

Added DiffLines:

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: In early seasons it was just about people fulfilling their fantasies, albeit with some FridgeLogic about how Mr. Rourke managed to pull some of it off. By the final season the show was dropping some pretty heavy hints that Rourke was an actual angel of the Lord.
