    No DB here, I hope. He was under-rated actor who, after "Gilligan," did a lot of voiceover work. RIP

    I thought you were talking about the guy who played with Hot Sauce.

    Now he may build flight systems out of coconuts and bamboo stalks, in paradise.

    Not as long as Mary Ann had those short shorts.

    Quick, what was The Professor's actual name (the character, not the actor)? And no checking IMDB!

    Bonus points if you know the Skipper's name, too.

    Arrgh! Never mind, I just noticed it's in the linked story!

    Oh, well, contest is still on for the Skipper's name.

    The Professor was Roy Hinkley (I actually read it in the obit before I came here.)

    The Skipper, I believe, was Jonas Grumby.

    What was Thurston Howell's wife's actual first name? "Lovey" was a nickname or perhaps a term of endearment.
