Russell Johnson, the professor on Gilligan's Island, has died. He was 89.

Story here.

I believe I once read that during an interview, Russell Johnson once quipped about his character, " The guy could make a transmitter out of a coconut but he couldn't figure out how to patch the hole in the damn boat". He'll be missed.

Another celebrity death that is especially painful. This was one of my favourite TV shows as a child and he was my favourite. My childhood is really fading away. Thanks for the laughs. RIP.
