Bob Denver Dies

Bob Denver, whose portrayal of goofy first mate Gilligan on the 1960s television show “Gilligan’s Island” made him an iconic figure to generations of TV viewers, has died, his agent confirmed Tuesday. He was 70.

Additionally, Denver starred as Maynard G. Krebs “Work!!”, friend of Dobie in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Now both shows were pretty much before my time, but I’ve seen both in syndication. IMO, Dobie Gillis is a funnier show, but I still like Gilligan.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Denver. You had a huge impact on TV and I dare say are a cultural icon.
