I was truly saddened to hear this afternoon that the creative mind behind several of the favorite shows from my youth had passed away. Sherwood Schwartz (no relation), the creator of such classics as the Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island died in his sleep at the ripe old age of 94.
Sherwood Schwartz, writer-creator of two of the best-remembered TV series of the 1960s and 1970s, “Gilligan’s Island” and “The Brady Bunch,” has died at age 94.
Great niece Robin Randall said Schwartz died at 4 a.m. Tuesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was being treated for an intestinal infection and underwent several surgeries. His wife, Mildred, and children had been at his side.
Goodbye Sherwood, thanks for the hours of enjoyment you provided me in my youth. And to honor his passing, I think it only fitting that we answer the age old question…Ginger or Mary Ann?
Mary Ann of course!
