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…”
