Posted: January 17th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"GilliganSubmit Comment
Actor Russell Johnson, who is best known for playing The Professor on the hit TV series "Gilligan's Island," has passed away on Thursday morning at his home in Washington. He was 89 years old and died of natural causes.

On the show, Johnson playing a high school science teacher who was capable of building just about anything, including generators, radios and other gadgets from regular items found on the island. But as Johnson joked, the one thing The Professor could never figure out was how to patch the hold at the bottom of the SS Minnow.

Outside of "Gilligan's Island," the actor also appeared in several episodes of "The Twilight Zone," as well as "Gunsmoke," "Rawhide" and "The Lone Ranger. He also had parts in dozens of feature films, including "MacArthur," "It Came From Outer Space" and the 1953 Western "Law and Order," in which he took part in a gunfight with the film's star, Ronald Reagan.

GILLIGANS ISLAND was one of the dumbest shows ever made, along with THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES and GREEN ACRES.

The episode where The Professor made a bong out of a cocunut, and he, Gilligan, and The Skipper got baked was hilarious.
