Gilligan’s Island/Dobie Gillis

Bob Denver, whose portrayal of goofy first mate Gilligan on the 1960s television show "Gilligan’s Island," made him an iconic figure to generations of TV viewers, has died.
 
Denver’s signature role was Gilligan. But he was already known to TV audiences for another iconic character, that of Maynard G. Krebs, the bearded beatnik friend of Dwayne Hickman Dobie in the "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," which aired from 1959 to 1963.
 
Gilligan’s Island" lasted on CBS from 1964 to 1967, and it was revived in later seasons with three high-rated TV movies
