(Newser) – Don't even pretend you don't know the words: Sherwood Schwartz, the man who created Gilligan's Island and the Brady Bunch—and wrote both theme songs—is dead at 94, reports the Los Angeles Times. Schwartz already had a successful career as a TV comedy writer when he created Gilligan's Island, which ran from 1964 to 1967. (It was "my version of a social microcosm, where seven people from various backgrounds had to learn to live together," he once said.) A few years later came his show about a "lovely lady" and a "man named Brady."
