Mary Ann Gilligan

GILLIGAN'S ISLAND APPRECIATION TUMBLR!

Things I appreciate about GI include but are not limited to the following: MAG, PINGER, Sherwood's sneaky naughty jokes, Aunt Martha and Uncle George, Harvard pride, Lovey's hats, Backus's ad libs, Skinny Mulligan stories, Proffy's tall socks, Duke Williams, Teddy, and especially awkward MAG.

(This Tumblr contains shameless shipping. You've been warned).

I also thoroughly enjoy all 1960's sitcoms, Mel Brooks movies, musicals, and general weirdness.

Jim Backus is gonna sell this piece of shit if it’s the last thing he does.

Haha, what?  Is this an outtake from a recording session?  I don’t care what’s happening, I love this man and all his vulgarities and all his genius improvisations.

this is still the best story ever told at a talk show

Everyone needs to watch this. 

RETTA!

On the coldest day, when all the Castaways had to go into the lagoon in one of those scenes, guess who was the first to jump into that uninviting, chilly water?
Natalie Schafer, that’s who. With her ever-present parasol over her head, Natalie would lead the charge of the other six Castaways into the lagoon. There wasn’t anything in the script Natalie refused to do, whether she was called upon to take a fall, sink into quicksand, or swing from a tree.

Good God I love this woman.  <3

And if you haven’t read this book, get on it.

Bob Denver and stand-in - horrified by the dead Gilligan dummy.

This picture is terrifying in more than one way.  o.O

Random MAG GIFies. Just cause I felt like it.

Who didn’t love seeing Gilligan carrying Mary Ann in his arms? :D

If you don’t ship MAG I hope your cold heart heals soon. :)

Look alive, Mary Ann!  When’s the next time your man’ll carry you through the jungle?!  (Never).  I bet she stepped in that bat-eater trap on purpose…

Damn it, Russy, stop upstaging everyone.  Poor Nat’s back there somewhere.

Here’s a little dancing Lovey to brighten your day. :)

Look how many fucks she gives about Dawn Wells saying Mary Ann’s ideal man was the Professor, when the copyright for the character of Mary Ann actually belongs to Sherwood Schwartz, who shipped Mary Ann/Gilligan. 

JESUS, NATALIE SCHAFER! What a boss!

Wait, she said Mary Ann’s ideal man was the Professor? I can understand she herself preferring him, but Mary Ann? That’s just her projecting herself onto the character, because Mary Ann was all about Gilligan. That’s clear as day when you watch the episodes.

Has she even seen the show? Can she really not remember playing out those scenes? Whatever, chick is getting delusional in her old age.

She’s the only one left apart from the very dignified Tina Louise. Sherwood and Bob are no longer around, so she can basically say what she wants. I think there’s WAY more to this than meets the eye. 

I know Tina is probably above all that pettiness, but it’d be kind of fun if she called Dawn out on that stuff.

Tina is well above it, or she herself would have capitalized on a book about Ginger. 

THESE ARE THE BEST GIFS ON TUMBLR. #NAT

"I knew it Skipper, what did I tell you? You can’t trust girls, they’ll only break your heart"

You’re taking this really hard, girl. We knew she’d do this, let’s be honest.

But this post made me sad. Stop it with his face!
