Gullah Gullah Island
So come and let's play together
In the bright, sunny weather.
Let's all go to Gullah Gullah Island.

Gullah Gullah Island was a children's show on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. block in the mid 90's. The show stars a Gullah family and their tadpole friend Binyah Binyah Polliwog living on an island off the coast of South Carolina.

Tropes featured include:

  • Classically Trained Extra: Not really "classically trained," but Miss Juana was played by Iris Chacon, a very popular singer and performer in Puerto Rico.
  • The Danza: The better part of the cast.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: In the episode "Armando's New Home", the kids and the adults got away with the words "stupid" and "dumb".
  • Nephewism: Ron and Natalie are hosting their niece, Vanessa, while her parents are teaching in an African University.
  • Parental Bonus: An episode on the theme of dancing ended with the parents appearing in vintage '70s clothes, a mirror ball dropping down from the ceiling, and the cast performing a rousing rendition of "Let's Go to the Disco."
  • Pokémon Speak: Binyah Binyah Polliwog.
