Totem Pole

Totem poles on the island were carved by the Kupaki, the most ferocious cannibals in the area. On top of this particular pole was a resemblance of Gilligan's head. Slowly the crew were captured by the natives. Gilligan dresses up as the Kupaki God (Mashuka) on the totem pole and comes to the rescue of his fellow castaways. The words "Pulu Si Bagumba" were taught to Gilligan by the Professor which meant "release the prisoners." Gilligan fumbles the words up and the Kupaki chase him. Gilligan stumbles, tossing the head back into the sand, frightening them away
