  • A witchdoctor hiding on the island casts a spell on the castaways by making voodoo dolls in each of their likenesses and stealing personal possessions from them. Despite the Skipper's fears, the Professor refuses to believe. But then....


    Personally I have always preferred episodes of Gilligan's Island which did not focus on the castaways possibly being rescued because you knew that was never going to be the case. Episodes of the castaway's adventures on the island are far more entertaining because you don't know what to expect and they are very funny. "Voodoo" is one of the best of such episodes. Seeing the castaways suffer under the witchdoctor's spell is nothing short of hilarious. As usual, the cast is in top form. The final scene of Gilligan giving the witchdoctor a taste of his own medicine is perfect.
