Mosquitoes Vs. Honeybees Vs. The Gnats

Catch the musical buzz in this Battle of the Bands, Gilligan's Island style.

THE MOSQUITOS - "Live in Concert"

Gilligan and Mary Ann's favorite band, live in concert from the episode "Don't Bug the Mosquitoes." They're a group parodying the Beatles, who are really the group "The Wellingtons", along with Les Brown Jr. Singing "Don't Bug Me" and "He's a Loser", come and check it out!

HONEYBEES - "You Need Us"

From the Gilligan's Island episode "Don't Bug the Mosquitoes"; Ginger, Mary Ann, and Mrs. Howell singing "You Need Us" as the group "The Honeybees." (more)

THE GNATS - Live in Concert

YouTube user comment: "My favorite clip from the best episode of one of the best tv shows, "Don't Bug The Mosquitoes"

Although this episode originally aired in late 1965, before Jefferson airplane became "huge" and Iron Butterfly was even formed, the professor bears a striking resemblance to Doug Ingle of Iron Butterfly, Mr. Howell looks like Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane, and Gilligan looks like Roger McGuinn of The Byrds.

But The Skipper is puzzling. I guess he looks a little like an old David Crosby with a derby hat."
