The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis III
How did Maynard G. Krebs die? episode
When he got out of the Army, too many parents were naming their children after him, like Maynard Ferguson (now a well known trumpet player).
He started going by his middle name. Yes, the G stood for Gilligan.
Maynard/Gilligan joined up with a former Navy vet, known as Skipper. They operated a tour boat.
One day the cruise disappeared with an actress, millionaire, professor and others. There were stories the crew had been discovered, but none of these panned out. Above is the last known photo of Maynard/Gilligan.
