* HereWeGoAgain: Just when they start adjusting to life on the mainland in ''Rescue From Gilligans Island'', they decide to take another three-hour tour, and they're castaways once again thanks to Gillgan's klutziness...



** The syndicated 1973 sitcom ''Series/DustysTrail'' was essentially ''Gilligan's Island'' set in TheWildWest. It even starred Bob Denver as the klutzy title character, with [[CounterpartComparison a burly wagonmaster as his boss, a millionaire and his wife, a saloon-girl dancer, a "book-smarts" Easterner, and a farmer's daughter]].

* DecidedByOneVote: "President Gilligan", the castaways determine they need an election to decide who'll be leader. The election pits the Skipper against Mr. Howell. Mr. Howell votes for himself, and Ginger votes for himself as well. The Professor and the Skipper vote for the Skipper. In a surprise twist, Gilligan wins on a "write-in" ballot. Mrs. Howell, Mary Ann and Gilligan himself vote for Gilligan as President.

* {{Crossover}}: An odd one with the obscure 90's show ''Meego''. The episode never made it to air in America but ''did'' air on Sky 1 in the UK.

** In the 1st season episode "Forget Me Not", the Skipper gets amnesia when a pole hits his head. When the Professor tries to cure him with hypnosis, he first reverts him to childhood and then makes him think it's still WorldWarII. HilarityEnsues.

* UnexpectedlyDarkEpisode: Many of the episodes didn't include any kind of threat at all (except perhaps the threat of never getting off the island). Then came "The Hunter", with big-game hunter Jonathan Kinkaid arriving on the island and taking advantage of the castaways' predicament to stalk Gilligan all over the island in an attempt to get over his boredom by hunting a human.



* WorldOfHam: Even for TheSixties, this was one hammy show.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Malaproper}}: The theme song mispronounces the name of Literature/RobinsonCrusoe as the name of the {{opera}} singer ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enrico_Caruso Caruso]]''. (It's possible it was intentional to fit the meter.)

** In 1990, the Fox Network presented ''Whoops!'', a sitcom about the last six people to survive a nuclear bomb. Sherwood Schwartz threatened to sue, but since the show only lasted a few episodes before being canceled, the point became moot.
