Review: Gilligan's Island episode The Friendly Physician
Gilligan's Island episode The Friendly Physician
Gender, Male
In the famous TG episode, the mad doctor swaps Gilligan with Mr Howell among the M/F bodyswaps! Mad doctor switches castaway's minds around. The Professor swaps bodies with Mary Ann, Skipper is swapped with Mrs. Howell, and Ginger swaps with the mad doctor's hulking assistant Igor.

A classic tv episode, acting is very believable the dr. is quite mad, and Igor feels good as ginger! Totally stands the test of time! It rates a 5 !!!

Not that great of an episode. The TG elements were minimal, at best. None of the characters seemed to care about their new condition.

I loved the way that Igor, the Professor, and the Skipper each had women voices, while Mary Ann, Ginger, and Mrs. Howell each had mens' voices.

Great acting. (And voice syncing.)

I would have liked it better if they the voices of the bodies. My favorite momnt is Igor saying feels good & fighting the change back - not that you can blame him!
If you want to read a couple of brilliant, modesy cough, fan fictions based on the episode on to fictionmania. Calbe Jones & I wrote Igor, hollywood starlet, and The Fate of the castaways

The voices going along with the selves is an annoying shtick that seems to have begun with the movie version of Turnabout, and is usual with body swaps in animated cartoons. It makes no kind of sense and insults the intelligence of the viewers. Mind you, some folks find swapped voices a turn-on, and I guess they're funny for the first minute or two. The actors did a great job here, but I think that it would have been better without the voice swaps.

The most sexy swap was the Professor and Mary Ann: the other characters are grotesques, even Ginger to a degree, but the Professor and Mary Ann are more or less normal in looks and behavior. I found it easy to identify with the Professor, and the thought of being stuck in Mary Ann's beauty-pageant-winner (in real life) body made the episode for me. I was rooting for the Mary-Ann-bodied Professor to tearfully confess that she'd always wanted to be female, Mary Ann to confess that he'd always wanted to be male, and the machine not to be used on them. The new Mary Ann would be quite some woman, with beauty and brains (well, maybe: she seemed pretty bright before the swap, and the Professor's knowledge might not be an improvement). Oh, well, it was just a silly Sixties show that doomed the cast to typecasting and lousy careers...

I love this episode (my fave next to "All about Eva") but one plot point always bothered me. It takes a third party to operate the machine and yet the Doctor seemed surprised that Igor and Ginger had been swapped. So how was it accomplished?

My own take: Ginger and Igor were never switched in the first place. Igor (secretly desiring to be a woman) took a prototype of the Doctor's mind control ring and programmed Ginger to act like a man in a woman's body. And since she's a trained actress she'd have no trouble instinctively adopting Igor's manner and voice.

Igor then minced down into the dungeon, freed the castaways, and tricked them into switching the two "back." Igor's mind would not be automatically under the sway of the ring and so he'd be able to deftly remove the ring within seconds of the swap. This means Ginger was left behind in the body of a dog (a bitch?) and Igor became Ginger for the rest of the series.

Of course, what the faux Ginger did when Eva Grubb arrived on the island is another story. :)

I Love this idea! It makes a lot naughty sense! I love stories when the wrong personis swapped 'back'.
