Name That Skipper!
Have you ever wondered what Skipper’s real name is? Apparently, it’s Jonas Grumby! Though this name was never mentioned in any of the episodes, the producers had established it before the pilot episode. However, they wanted the nickname to stick. And it did!
Breaking The Fourth Wall
A fourth wall is a space established between the audience or camera crew and the actor. It is meant to separate the character from the set. When Gilligan’s Island was released, breaking the fourth wall wasn’t heard of. However, Skipper was notorious for doing it all the time. There was even a time that he made a face directly to the camera!
