Sherwood Schwartz, creator of TV classics like Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch passed away surrounded by his family.

Story Here.

Gilligan's Island is one of my all-time favorite shows. RIP, Mr. Schwartz.  Bluesad

I hate to say it, but I thought he was already dead.

But yeah, the guy created some of the most beloved shows of my childhood. A great influence on television and pop culture in general.

Indeed, and heads up to Flick for his comments too. Sure, The Brady Bunch may have solved family problems in a half hour, unlike real life, but the show was pure fun, save for the time it got serious when Bobby and Cindy got lost in the Grand Canyon... TeddyR

However, unlike a lot of the shows of that day, The Brady Bunch also found a way to deliver good life lessons a way kids could understand, while finding the humor in it those lessons.

Mr. Schwarzt, thanks for some truly great TV, and may you Rest In Peace.  Thanks for the memories  Smile

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
