RIP Bob Denver

aka Maynard G. Krebs and Gilligan
Bob Denver, whose portrayal of goofy castaway Gilligan on the 1960s TV show "Gilligan's Island" made him an iconic figure to generations of TV viewers, has died. He was 70.

He died Friday at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina of complications from treatment he was receiving for cancer, his agent, Mike Eisenstadt, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

His wife, Dreama, and children Patrick, Megan, Emily and Colin were with Denver, who also had undergone quadruple heart bypass surgery earlier this year. . .
I might have watched a few episodes of both Dobie Gillis and Gilligan's Island.

And now the important question. Ginger or Mary Ann?

Still a tough choice. . .

Wombat-socho has the mega "Rule Five Sunday: The Two Faces Of India" and "FMJRA 2.0: Jetpack Blues" ready at the Other McCain.


  1. And now the important question. Ginger or Mary Ann?

    In all the polls the girl next door Mary Ann (Dawn Wells)rates higher (3 to 1) among bloggers than the curvy movie star Ginger (Tina Louise).

    I can't vote against a redhead with nice boobs. It's physically impossible for me to click the Mary Ann button

    This colossal metablog features Mary Ann and Ginger, of Gilligan's Island fame.

  2. Bob Denver died almost 11 years ago.

    "Have you been on holiday?"

    And you should embrace the power of "AND" and stop asking silly questions.

  3. Ooops; I usually check dates better than that. I guess I could change the title to "Bob Denver Still Dead".

    But you have to admit he had a sweet job.
