Sherwood Schwartz Is Dead

A sad day for my generation.

In his honor:

Sherwood Schwartz, the TV producer that created two of the most oddly enduring sitcoms in TV history, The Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island has died at 94. He passed away last night in his sleep.

Re: Sherwood Schwartz Is Dead

RIP to Mr Schwartz. I'm glad to see he led a full life and wasn't in any pain when he passed on.

I always use to watch Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch during the summers of my childhood. I even own the full series dvd sets to each show

"Sherwood Schwartz brought laughter and comfort to millions of people. Gilligan's Island was a family. He will be in our hearts forever.

"Sherwood had a wonderful family who loved and respected him. I know his Brady Bunch family felt the same way. He will be greatly missed.

The Professor will use his coffin as a radio transmitter.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

Re: Sherwood Schwartz Is Dead

Without a doubt he was one of the foremost influences on my generation...Gilligans Island was one of my favorite shows growing up and of course I've seen every episode of the Brady Bunch at least a dozen times.

I'm embarrassed to admit the level of influence Thurston Howell and the Professor had on me as a child...they were the primary examples of the two things I aspired to...a brilliant mind and a huge bank account.

To this day I understand that the worst thing you could possibly be is "a Yaleman".
