man selling Gilligan's original S.S. Minnow

The S.S. Minnow from the 1960s TV series Gilligan's Island is looking for a new owner.

If you want to own an icon of television history, George Schultz of Parksville, B.C. has a deal for you: the S.S. Minnow from the 1960s television series Gilligan's Island."There have been a couple of modifications, so it doesn't look exactly like the original," said Shultz, a boat broker who's selling the 36-foot Wheeler Express Cruiser for fellow Parksdale resident Scotty Taylor. "But it's still the original boat."There were four Minnows used on the sitcom, Shultz said, but three others were props. This is the one they used for taking shots out on the water, he said. | B.C. man selling Gilligan's original S.S. Minnow

He then spilled that his gal pal has been cast as Lucy Ewing in the big-screen adaptation of the 1970/1980s TV soap "Dallas."Then Locke inquired, "Oh, so I bet your girlfriend can give us the scoop on why Jennifer Lopez was fired from the movie?" Without thinking, McCartney replied, "She didn't get fired. She's pregnant."Oops. J-Lo and hubby Marc Anthony haven't exactly made that news public yet.Locke reports that McCartney then looked nervously over at his female handler and quickly changed the subject.

Vintage "PARTY GAGS" kit

It was produced in 1959 by a Chicago outfit called Fishlove, which was a respectable novelty maker that offered favorites like Yakity-Yak chattering teeth, and a line of "giant" products such as sunglasses, combs, and toothbrushes. (A company called Fun Inc. bought them out and still offers some of their line.) This set was "coincidentally" released the same year that S.S. Adams put out a similar boxed assortment called the "Life of the Party" set.
