Sherwood Schwartz, creator of “Gilligan’s Island” and “The Brady Bunch” has died in L.A. at the age of 93. He believed that TV theme songs should fill viewers-in on the story so he co-wrote both themes that became two of the most famous songs on earth.
- As a tribute to Schwartz, Doctors informed his family of his passing by singing, “Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale… A tale of a guy who’s dead!”
- Schwartz took two very important secrets with him to the grave: Was Gilligan more that just the Skipper’s “little buddy”? And who did the Professor really have the hots for… Ginger or Mary Ann?
- Schwartz’s ashes will be scattered at sea after seven of his closest family members board a boat for a three hour tour. A three hour tour.
- His last words were reportedly, “Marcia… Marcia… Marcia…”
