Creator of "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch" Dead at 94

Posted: July 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Creator of "GilliganSubmit Comment
Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch," two of the most iconic television series, has died at the age of 94. He was being treated for an intestinal infection and underwent several surgeries. He died with his wife and children at his side.

Schwartz was working on a big-screen version of "Gilligan's Island," said his nephew Douglas Schwartz, who created the hit series "Baywatch." Douglas called his uncle a longtime mentor and caring "second father" who helped guide him successfully through show business.

Schwartz was born in 1916 in Passaic, NJ, and grew up in Brooklyn, NY. His brother, already working for Bob Hope, got him a job when Sherwood was still in college. Schwartz gave up a career in medical science to write jokes for Hope's radio show. He went on to write for other radio and TV shows, including "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet."

"Bob liked my jokes, used them on his show and got big laughs. Then he asked me to join his writing staff," he said back in 2008, when he got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "I was faced with a major decision - writing comedy or starving to death while I cured those diseases. I made a quick career change."

Thank you Mr. Schwartz for some truly entertaining TV.

You made my elementary school sick days easier to get through.

I never understood how the professor could make a fusion reactor out of some coconut shells and a bamboo stick, but he couldn't get them the f*ck off that island....

Or how Mr. Brady designed houses for a living but had a house where all the kids shared one f*ckin tiny bedroom. Even the maid got her own room.


There Arnie...I said maid...go get that turkey neck.....and if you do not hear me....then to hell with you...

I want to see the out-takes of all the kids bangin' one-another whilst Greg slips into the shower with his step-mom while his gay dad was at work paying the bills.
