Sherwood Schwartz Dies at 94

Reuters: NEW YORK (TheWrap) - Sherwood Schwartz, the Emmy-winning television mastermind behind "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch," has died at 94.
"He had a lot of favorite projects and a lot of favorite shows and his favorite one was always the next one," his son and producing partner, Lloyd J. Schwartz, told TheWrap. "He didn't really die. He just ran out of time to do things."
Not only did Schwartz give us those enduring TV shows we grew up with, either originally broadcasted or in rerun, but he also co-wrote the theme songs. Now that's gold!

If I'd met him I would've ask him two burning questions-was Gilligan Gay?And what were filthy rich Howells doing taking a three hour tour when they obviously had enough money to own a yacht? After all, Thurston Howell was always wearing a captain's cap.
