Many people weren't aware that after the "Gilligan's Island" series, another
show was produced by Sherwood Schwartz called "Dusty's Trail." The made for
TV pilot movie was entitled "The Wackiest Wagon Train In The West." This show
was about seven people on a wagon train searching for the old west, but they
kept getting lost. (Sound Familiar?) Bob Denver portrays Dusty the guide and
the Wagonmaster was played by Forest Tucker. The show ran for only 26 weeks.
If you ever watch this show, the resemblance to Gilligan's Island is quite
remarkable and is funny to watch.
Members of the cast are:
Wagon Master (Skipper?)
Rich Couple (Howell's?)
Engineer (Professor?), School Teacher (Mary Ann?), Saloon Girl (Ginger?)
