FANTASTIC ISLAND (1977 – 1984)

Fantasy Island

Creator: Gene Levitt

Cast: Ricardo Montalban, Hervé Villechaize, Christopher Hewett 

Be careful what you wish for said Mr Roarketo (Ricardo Mantalban) to Tattoo ( Herve Willechaize). This show never got old it still stands out today. People would get to the island to be anything they wanted to be over the weekend on this Fantasy island. Boss the plane, the plane shouted Tattoo the plane landed and Mr. Roarke and Tatto were treating the guest that just arrived. This resort island would grant any fantasy requested, but rarely turn out as expected. There where a series of guest stars every year that would go on each week. It was a nice show that you could get lost for 45 minutes. It was a family show back then that had this Happy formula. 3D was episode was schedule but got canceled. Villechaize sadly killed himself due to depression he became an alcoholic and had heath problems. He died in 1993. I was born in Paris, his father was a surgeon and Hervé studied at the Beaux Arts in Paris. He got roles suddenly in movies and series. He became rich and had great success. I remember hear it on the news. The series still lives on so if you want to adventure yourself just do it. Every time i see a plane in the sky I feel like screaming “the plane, the plane.”
