Sherwood Schwartz reported dead
“Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…”
Sherwood Schwartz made America laugh.
He’s most associated with Gilligan’s Island and the Brady Bunch…seven characters may have been a lucky number for him (Alice counts on the Brady Bunch).
He also was a creator of Dusty’s Trail (which featured a Gilligan’s Island cameo reunion) and It’s About Time (with its memorable theme song…”It’s about time, it’s about space…”). Barbara Eden fans can also thank him for the Harper Valley TV series.
Earlier in his career, he’d written both for I Married Joan and The Red Skelton Show.
Silly is often harder than serious…we owe a lot of smiles to this writer…and that’s one of the most important things you can give someone.
