Richard Kiel haunts the castaways
18 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Ghost-a-Go-Go" anticipates the vampire episode with a wailing ghost terrifying Gilligan into sleepless nights. By morning we learn that everyone has been haunted the night before, strange sounds and items disappearing. When the spectre starts talking to Gilligan he tells the castaways to leave the island, even providing a well stocked boat that arouses the Professor's suspicions. With seven dummies posing as the real McCoys the boat doesn't go far before exploding, the ghost revealing himself to be a foreign agent (a dubbed Richard Kiel) who wanted the squatters dead, intending to use the island as a base of operations for offshore oil rights. This gives the still living castaways the opportunity to start haunting the ghost, wearing the same kind of sheets that he's been using, convincing him and his superiors that the island is now well and truly haunted. Kiel only reveals himself during the last five minutes, but his conversations with W-9 are priceless: "I hear something...a feet step!"
