The Professor and Mary Ann were my favorite castaways.
Mine too, the first season "and the rest" thing made them sort of underdogs, to me. And I believe Johnson and Dawn Wells were the closest friends to each other among the cast.

It was always fun to see "The Professor" in something else such as Gunsmoke or Wagon Train, it seemed like he was usually a bad guy before GI. Just recently I saw him as WW2 Admiral King in the movie MacArthur; with his head of hair he looked nothing like the real person, but it was just nice to see him.

Thanks and RIP, Mr. Johnson.
