We loved HIM so much, we invited him into our living rooms for years, until he was rescued.

ALAN HALE JR., was the Skipper on "Gilligan's Island", (He loved his character so much that he'd almost always wear a skipper's cap in public. After he was done with them, he donated each of his used caps to raise money for charity.) But he’s gone. 25 years ago this week. . . In January of 1990,

Allen Hale died at 69 but he will always be The Skipper, memorialized in this Stairway To Gilligan’s Island by Little Roger and the Goosebumps.
