Do You Remember Gilligan's Island ? I Bet You Do ! But Did You Know They Had A Cartoon Series ? 1974-1977

"The New Adventures Of Gilligan's Island" was the name of the animated cartoon series that ran from 1974 to 1977.

The animated series was a remake of the original series, and the plots of the episodes were very similar to those of the original series. The main difference was the inclusion of Stubby, an anthropomorphic monkey who is befriended by Gilligan.

The show was geared towards young children and the educational consultant was Nathan Cohen of UCLA. They produced 24 episodes of educational segments to teach children on moral topics...with Gilligan and the Skipper discussing the moral topic of the cartoon at the end. The cartoon show characters were voiced by the original actors except for Tina Louise and Dawn Wells.

The Gilligan's Island cartoon was first produced by Filmation Associates. The company

had approached Sherwood Schwartz (Screen writer/Producer) in 1971 but he was not interested at the time,so they tried again in 1972 and 1973. Finally, Filmation Associates got their break and Schwartz agreed to license the show on the condition that he had a say in the script, storyboards and other creative aspects of the show. Now watch a "New Adventure Of Gilligan's Island" cartoon....
