* EarWorm: the theme song. As ''Webcomic/{{Achewood}}'' pointed out, Emily Dickinson's "Because I could not stop for Death" fits the theme song... as do "[[AmazingFreakingGrace Amazing Grace]]", "Auld Lang Syne", and the first verse of the first English Pokémon theme.

* Expy: The Professor's character is very similar to that of Mr. Boynton of ''Radio/OurMissBrooks''fame. Originally, the Professor was even written as a high school science teacher rather than a college professor.

** They end up being rescued in the reunion movies. So looks like that bad karma was worked off. Talk about EarnYourHappyEnding.

* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: The popular theory that the seven castaways represent the seven deadly sins, and that the island is a purgatory for them to work off their bad karma, or a hell constructed specifically to torture them.

* HamAndCheese - The whole cast to some degree, but Jim Backus as Mr. Howell in particular (and the character was immeasurably the better for it).

* HoYay - In one episode both Gilligan and the skipper both think the other has been turned into a monkey. ItMakesSenseInContext. What is the first thing they do when they see the monkey dressed up in the other's clothes? Strip it naked, of course.

* NightmareFuel:
** More than one viewer felt that during the show's "Jack and the Beanstalk" dream-episode, Alan Hale was genuinely frightening as the giant.
** "Ghost a Go-Go" uses the BedsheetGhost trope (albeit it's a man pretending to be a ghost) and while the episode mostly keeps it from being NightmareRetardant, it doesn't quite reach this trope. There is, however, one scene in the episode where Gilligan is woken up by the "ghost", opens the blinds, and sees the guy standing right outside his window staring at him.

Added DiffLines:

** For what it's worth, Dawn Wells was Miss Oklahoma and was the 1st runner-up in the 1961 Miss America contest and then there is the issue with Mary Anne's VagueAge, as she's implied to be very young (so of course the adult Ginger is a more viable option)

* FetishFuel: Ginger's numerous seduction scenes.



* UnfortunateImplications - the full-on YellowPeril Japanese submarine sailor, complete with buck teeth, coke-bottle glasses, and [[YouNoTakeCandle funny accent]].

* UnfortunateImplications: Played with; while there is a spear-carrying bare-chested native with a bone in his nose holding a shrunken head, he's unambiguously pale with face paint that resembles NerdGlasses.
