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!"

* {{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, Ricardo Montalban was [[HeroicBuild seriously built]] in RealLife. Remember ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''? Yeah. That was ''allll'' him, baby!.

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.
