Bob Denver enjoyed going sailing in real life. But for obvious reasons he dreaded it when he had to rent a boat. People would often say the same jokes to him every time he did. Like oh three hour tour huh?.
Denver, Colorado, was named in honor of his great-great grandfather James William Denver (1817-1892), who was the territorial governor of Kansas.
On Friday, October 15, 1976, while preparing to appear in a stage production of Woody Allen's "Play It Again, Sam" at the Tidewater Dinner Theatre in Norfolk, Virginia, was charged with driving under the influence of an intoxicant, refusal to submit to a breath and blood alcohol tests, and driving without an operator's license.
Discovered acting while studying law at Loyola University in Los Angeles, California in the 1950s.
Replaced Woody Allen as the protagonist in Allen's play "Play It Again, Sam" on Broadway in 1970.
Playing beatnik Maynard G. Krebs on the comedy series The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959), Denver's most enduring line from that series was his freaked-out exclamation "Work!?" whenever anyone mentioned the word within hearing distance.
After surviving quadruple bypass surgery in early 2005, he was diagnosed with cancer only a few months before his death on September 2. Treated at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital, he died in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The first name of his character Gilligan, which was never mentioned on the series, was Willy. It was mentioned in the original pilot, but because three of the parts were recast, it was never shown until the 90s.
On Tuesday, September 6, 2005, Bob's friend from the comedy series The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959), former actress-turned-California State Senator Sheila James Kuehl, who played boy-crazy Zelda Gilroy on the series, was granted her request that the Senate adjourn in Denver's memory.
Raised in Brownwood, Texas where he graduated from high school. The family eventually moved to California.
Studying at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles where he received a degree in political science, he switched from a possible law career to acting and made his West Coast stage debut in a late 1950s production of "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial".
Bob Denver's date of birth on Wednesday, January 9, 1935, was just a day after Elvis Presley's date of birth, on Tuesday, January 8, 1935.
Denver often went out of his way to help his fellow cast members on Gilligan's Island (1964). This is included trying to give Dawn Wells an equal share of publicity as Tina Louise and demanding that she and Russell Johnson be given an equal credit in the series' title sequence.
In real life, he is diametrically opposite of the well-known inept and goofy characters he has portrayed on television. He is an enormously talented, introverted, and well-read man who loves children, especially his own.
Had a son, Colin, with Dreama - had 3 other children from previous marriages.
Denver suffered a broken neck in 1956, which prevented him from getting inducted in the United States Army.
Used to work for the United States Postal Service as a postman, and as a high school teacher.
