Aquaman on Gilligan's Island

 


This cover is another suggestion from Marc Tyler Nobleman, comics historian and Patron of this blog.  An offbeat match-up to be sure, but damned if this would not have been my favorite episode of the Sherwood Schwartz sitcom!  I was always amazed that a group of supposedly stranded people kept running into guest stars on that island.  Thanks, Marc!

Now there's a blast from the past :D
I hope someday there will be a sequel, Green Lantern on Gilligan's Planet

Or maybe Gilligan's Planet could be Mogo...

Really enjoyable and brilliantly offbeat but surprisingly perfectly logical. Yet another homerun.

Those couple sentences on the bottom are new. It really distracts from the actual cover.

As Ross has mentioned in other posts, he's had to put the disclaimer since too many people were taking his work and posting on social media without proper credit.

Bigby's right. So, please, accept the new feature as literally here to stay and just discuss the depicted characters of each day's cover (as is supposed to be the custom)!

OK, then, here goes. Big Mike and JLB have great memories. I, too, watched "Gilligan's Planet" on Saturday mornings back in the Eighties. It was off-beat! But, no more so than the second season of "Josie & The Pussycats." Or similar live-action shows like Sid and Marty Kroft's "The Space Nuts."

In other words, I enjoyed it. And that's all I ever asked of any Saturday morning cartoon not geared for the under-10 crowd!

Thanks for posting this, Ross. :-)

Great, now that blasted song will be running around my head all day.
(Seriously, great cover.)

I was reminded of "Gilligan's Planet", too.

In the 1970's, I think a non-animated cartoon featured "Gilligan's Traffic Island"; think "Sanjay and Craig"'s "Traffical Island" and "CatDog"'s "The Island".

even Fonzie and the Happy Days gang went to outer space in cartoon form....
hmmm.... maybe The Fonz could appear on Space Ghost Coast to Coast as a guest....
Heeyyy!!!!

When the Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted in April 2010, did any comedians make Jetsons jokes on TV? LOL! XD!

20 minutes with those people the aliens will give them back.

I once read an on-line pastiche where Gilligan's Island got nuked by the SSN Seaview from "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea!"

They must've thought the Castaways were space aliens in disguise.

@Anon1103: Err...what??

@jack-el: I don't remember the Happy Days Gang ever going to space. They did travel through time, though.

@The Man in Black: Good one! :)

@Daviticus: I think in one episode, the Happy Days gang were in space in a scene.

Did they happen to cross paths with a certain newlywed from Ork?

I’ve been following this blog for years and have never commented...but this is my absolute favorite cover/pairing! Two of my favorites together! Brilliant!
Now we just have to get Bailey’s Comets with the Legion of Super Heroes or Penelope Pitstop and Wonder Woman and I’ll be over the moon!
(Speaking of...have the Jetsons / Flintstones ever met Adam Strange?)

@Unknown: not that I can ascertain. :-(
