Once you have conquered Peachy’s 8-bit Tombs, you need something triumphant to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with a rousing 8-bit rendition of the Theme to Indiana Jones.
While on the lookout for more lost pilots, I stumbled onto this opening from the original Gilligan’s Island pilot (unfortunately, the full episode is much harder to find). The song is completely different from the one we’re all familiar with, and it has a different set of characters (2 secretaries and a high school teacher instead of the professor, movie star, and random woman off the street (Mary-Anne)). The Howells, Gilligan, and the Skipper are all the same though.
I enjoy pretty much every one of these cartoons and I really like videos where they chain together the all. I just wish I could play the video likes “Name that Tune” and ring in when I think I know the answer, rather than have them display the name of the show.
The keyboardist in this video can really improvise. Give it about 30 seconds for full effect.
If you’ve read this far, you can even download a HALLOWEEN THEME remix by the same person.
