Bob Denver


Bob Denver Trivia


  • Trivia

    • While shooting a scene with a lion resting on a bed for an episode of Gilligan's Island, the well-trained animal leapt at Bob as he started for the door. The only thing that saved Denver's life was the fact that the bed wasn't secured to the floor. As a result, the lion's back legs pushed the bed backwards, stifling the force from his jump and landing the beast two feet short of Bob's position. He literally came within inches of being crushed by a 400 pound lion.
