    Without peeking, name the famous guest star and the espisode they appeared.

    I'll get the ball rolling with my own favorite (and of my favorite eps of any show ever).

    Phil Silvers (The Producer)

    This epsiode taught me more as a kid than any given ep of Sesame Street. At age 8, I not only learned about Hamlet, but the opera Carmen as well. Who woulda thunk it? LOL.

    It's been too long since I saw the show to say. But your question makes me want to see it again someday. Used to watch it all the time as kid.

    It's been a number of years since I saw it, but the episode where John McGiver played the guy hunting for the rare butterfly on the island was one I always liked. One of many I should say. Always loved Gilligan's Island and I always thought the regular cast was the highlight of the show.

    While the ones I get the biggest kicks out of featured only the regular cast (and usually involved dream sequences), I do remember liking Zsa Zsa Gabor as Erica Tiffany Smythe, although I can't recall the episode title. And while I don't think it was a famous guest star, I really liked the one that spoofed "The Most Dangerous Game," with the big game hunter hunting Gilligan.

    Seems like I remember Don Rickles (of all people) guesting on show. Anyone confirm this?

    Vito Scotti as the Japanese soldier who didn't know WWII was over.

    Sorry, no guest stars but probably the most gutbusting episode of the entire series -- they find a movie camera and film, make a movie to get themselves rescued -- naturally they don't get rescued, but their film wins the Cannes Film Festival.

    Too many gags and magnificent performances to mention here....who needed guest stars?
