New Adventures of Gilligan, The

1 9 7 4 – 1 9 7 7 (USA)
24 x 30 minute episodes

A cartoon spin-off from the hugely popular TV series Gilligan’s Island that continued to relate the misadventures that befell the shipwrecked survivors of the sightseeing ship S.S. Minnow as they struggled for survival and sought a way off the island.

Jonas Grumby was the skipper; Gilligan was his first mate; Ginger Grant was the actress; Mary Ann Summers was the clerk from Kansas; Thurston Howell III and his wife Lovey were the millionaires and Roy Hinkley was the Professor.

In this cartoon version, Gilligan also adopted a pet monkey named Snubby.

Dawn Wells was unavailable to reprise the role of Mary Ann because of theatre commitments and Tina Louise no longer wanted to play Ginger and refused to let Filmation use her likeness.

Both characters were voiced by Jane Webb but to give the illusion that two actresses were used, she was credited by her professional name (Webb) as Ginger, and by her maiden name, (Jane Edwards) for the Mary Ann credit.
