Description
It was as funny and as cartoonish as the series with three survivors (Gilligan, Mary-Anne, and the Professor) telling their favorite anecdotes and having some of them acted out. The host segments were wonderful, and the flashbacks were done very well by actors who looked similar to the castaways.
