I can see where the beer and ammonia come from, but are you seriously saying that you go out on the razz with a supply of Epsom salts?

Never had those forward planning skills. When one used to wake after a quiet doze on the lawn, one was young, foolish and not wise.

Now that wisdom has settled in comfortably beside the fireplace, one finds that one no longer ends up on a lawn in the wee hours. One wakes in one's bed, positively reeking of Horlicks

surely the words "Daily Mail" and "Intelligence" should not appear on the same piece of paper?

Probably the Captain was related to Para Handy

110 day on a 10 day trip?
That's nothing!

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip, that started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship. The mate was a mighty sailin' man, the Skipper brave and sure. Five passengers set sail that day for a three hour tour. A three hour tour.
The weather started getting rough, the tiny ship was tossed. If not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Minnow would be lost. The Minnow would be lost. The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle.

I don't recall how they got off that island in the end.

P.S. I appreciated your photoshop efforts, Shakey.

Last episode

The last episode of the show, "Gilligan the Goddess", aired on April 17, 1967, and ended just like the rest, with the castaways still stranded on the island. It was not known at the time that it was the last episode, as a fourth season was expected but then cancelled.
Just for you Checkers

TV adverts get dafter and dafter.

The one where a couple go into a snowy garden for a barbeque for example. The message I get is 'Actimel rots your brain'.

A bit of further research, handsfree:

# In a 1978 made-for-television movie, Rescue from Gilligan's Island, the castaways did successfully leave the island, but had difficulty reintegrating into society. During a reunion cruise on the first Christmas after their rescue, fate intervened and they found themselves wrecked on the same island at the end of the film. It starred the original cast except for Tina Louise, who refused to participate and was replaced as Ginger by Judith Baldwin. The plot involved Soviet agents seeking a memory disc from a spy satellite that landed on the island and facilitated their rescue. Gilligan and the Skipper "rescue" Mary Ann right as she is to marry her longtime fiancé, which contradicts the series where it was established that Mary Ann had no boyfriend after having made up a story about a boyfriend to keep the others from feeling sorry for her.
# In a 1979 sequel, The Castaways on Gilligan's Island, they were rescued once again, and the Howells converted the island into a getaway resort, with the other five castaways as "silent partners". Ginger was again played by Judith Baldwin.

Vaguely remember the film now.

I'd put it in the same category as Mister Ed, although I think Mr Ed was about 10 years earlier. Seems they gave the horse peanut butter before filming so it would look as though it was talking.
