Welcome to Gilligan’s Gift Gallery!
Bob had high regard for his Gilligan’s Island fans, which is why he chose each Gift Gallery item personally in hopes that each visitor would find something special to keep as a Castaway memento.
For almost 30 years I was married to the man the rest of the world knew as Gilligan. Almost five decades of reruns have made his television character iconic, but the Bob Denver I knew and loved was legendary to me for his courage, his commitment to his severely autistic son and his love for the wife of his dreams, maybe the reason he called me Dreams. Devoting the last 21 years of his life to our son Colin speaks volumes about Bob Denver, the man. Our love story is one for the ages. Anyone who knew us in our years together will tell you that. Our devotion to each other and to Colin was complete, and the courage of this man during the last six months of his life exemplifies the definition of the word. This is the story of a man and woman who made vows to each other and kept them. This is the story of parents facing the challenge of autism together, never wavering in their love for each other or their son. This is the story of Bob and me, two imperfect people who fit perfectly together. Losing Bob was the hardest thing I’ve ever faced, but his love left me stronger, more focused and in the end, able to survive even when I thought I couldn’t. Being loved by this man was the greatest gift of my life. For every challenge we faced and every minute we spent together, I love you, Bob Denver.
Replica Gilligan Hat
After years of being asked ‘where can I find a Gilligan hat exactly like the one you wore on the show?’ Bob began searching for a replica of his famous firstmate’s hat. Souvenir shop knock-offs wouldn’t do, so he finally decided to have hats made to his specifications. The resulting hat is exactly like Bob’s – all the way from the brim to the button on top!
Gilligan, Maynard and Me by Bob Denver
In 1993 Bob wrote this career memoir, which encompasses stories from Dobie Gillis, Gilligan’s Island, The Good Guys, Dusty’s Trail, Far Out Space Nuts and all three Gilligan movies filmed in the late 70s and early 80s. Every word in this book was written by Bob himself, which means his wonderful story telling talent shines through on every page. His attention to detail regarding stunts from GI is not only astounding, but informative. The only new copies of Gilligan, Maynard and Me in existence are right here at bobdenver.com. This book is a ‘must’ for any Gilligan’s Island/Bob Denver fan. As the first and only book he wrote, Gilligan, Maynard and Me is definitely a collector’s item.
