Bob Denver passed away Friday at age 70. The news was just released today.

I grew up watching this show in reruns. I've been buying the series as it's released on dvd and my ritual is to always have cocnut cream pie when I watch it.

I got a lot of laughs from this show as a child and still do now.

A sad day indeed. :cry:

My Condolences.

I don't think the show made it across the ocean when I was a kid. Only know it by reputation.

Coconut Cream Pie ?!? :?

They were castaways on a South Pacific island.

Their diet consisted of coconuts and bananas.

Both of which make tasty cream pies.

Let's not forget Maynard from Dobie Gillis.

I only saw a couple of those but He(Maynard) seemed the character Shaggy was based on.

I grew up watching these as well.... :cry: :cry:

What's realy interesting is that before he got into acting, he was studying law.
