Which Islander floats your boat?

Since I am not real gifted at the poll posting skill, I'm going to change this thread into a "sing your favorite old sitcom theme thread!"

So..... I'll start:

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port,
Aboard this tiny Ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
The Skipper brave and sure,
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour.

A three hour tour. [ sound of thunder: crack! ]

The weather started getting rough,
The tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
The Minnow would be lost.

The Minnow would be lost.

The ship's aground on the shore of this
Uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan, the Skipper too,
The Millionaire and his wife,
A movie star, the Professor and Mary Ann,
Here on Gilligan's Isle!

So this is the tale of our castways,
They're here for a long, long time
They'll have to make the best of things,
It's an uphill climb.

The first mate and the Skipper too,
Will do their very best,
To make the others comfortable,
In their tropic island nest.

No phone! No light! No motor car!
Not a single luxury,
Like Robinson C-ru-soe, it's primitive as can be.
So join us here each week my freinds,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven stranded castways,
Here on "Gilligan's Isle."

Technically it's probably not a sitcom, but screw rules, they're never louder than the voices in my head...

Mine is Monkey:

[Spoken intro]

"In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order. But the phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the Sun and the Moon all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation. And it became magically fertile. That first egg was named "Thought". Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said, "With our thoughts, we make the World". Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!"

[Song]

Born from an egg on a mountain top,
the punkiest Monkey that ever popped,
He knew every magic trick under the sun,
to tease the gods and everyone can have some fun.
Monkey magic,
Monkey magic,
Monkey magic,
Monkey magic,
Monkey magic,
Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, ooh



And the whole intro, courtesy of YouTube:



Gees, I loved that show.

Cheers,
Marc

Otherwise, LOVED that!

And now for something completely different.

The lyrics to the theme song to "The Patty Duke Show":

Meet Cathy, who's lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty's only seen the sight.
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights --
What a crazy pair!

But they're cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control --
What a wild duet!

Still, they're cousins,
Identical cousins and you'll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike --

You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

I absolutely loved that show. I recently watched a few of the episodes on YouTube and still enjoyed watching (a lot of the old things I used to watch are better remebered as being good rather than discovering that they have aged badly!)

I am looking forward to watching the recent movie, especially as the characters all look so similar. I also hope that they bring the stage show to the screen!

Again, sitcom probably doesn't quite fit the bill, but one of my favourites was

Its cold outside,
There's no kind of atmosphere,
I'm all alone,
More or less.
Let me fly,
Far away from here,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun.

I want to lie,
Shipwrecked and comotoase,
Drinking fresh,
Mango juice,
Goldfish shoals,
Nibbling at my toes,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun.

Here's the story
Of a lovely lady
Who was brining up
Three very lovely girls

EDIT: To answer the question, I vote for Lovie.

I hope that's not the new theme song for the new sailboat? Unless, of course, you *want* to be stranded on a desert island.
*edit* It may be difficult to be stranded with LaGrange friends.
