Plot Overview

Gilligan,The Skipper,and The Professor are moving very silently towards a Cave that they will be hiding in.The reason is the Drums which are beating.War Drums from some Headhunters who have arrived on the Island.While checking out their potential hiding place,Gilligan accidentally bumps his Forehead on the entrance.The impact makes him see things,and people upside down.The Professor works to find a cure for Gilligans condition.In each attempt results become worst,until The Professor recalls a simple solution to the effects.This solution is Water.Gilligan needs to drink Water with his eyes close,and he will be cured.By the time the Professor recalls this cure,the Headhunters have captured Mary Ann,Ginger,and The Howells.They would then take The Skipper,and The Professor.With most of the Castaways locked in a Cage,it is up to Gilligan to rescue them.Gilligan sees his fellow Castaways in a Cage,and realizing that he is outnumbered,he recalls one of the Professors Formula which makes objects,and people see double,and triple.Gilligan pretends to drink the Formula in front of the Headhunters,to trick them into becoming curious enough to make them want to drink the Formula themselves.Gilligans ploy worked.He relays the plan to the others,and as they drink the Formula,they begin to see double,and triple of the Castaways.Believing the Castaways are too many for the m to fight,The Headhunters run in fright,they jump into the Lagoon,and swim away from the Island.The Castaways free,they each thank Gilligan for saving their lives.
