What Could Have Been
In the pilot episode, many of the cast members are not the same cast members that we have become accustomed to and fell in love with.  These characters were The Professor (played by John Gabriel), a high school science teacher, Ginger (played by Kit Smythe), who was originally a secretary instead of a movie star, and Bunny (played by Nancy McCarthy), another secretary.  After the pilot was shown to test audiences, it was decided to replace those actors/actresses who tested the lowest with the audience.  
Russell Johnson was cast as The Professor and Tina Louise was cast as Ginger (who was now a movie star instead of a secretary).  The role of Mary Ann went to Dawn Wells, however another well known actress auditioned for the part--Raquel Welch.  It was decided though that Welch didn't fit the character of the girl next door and so Wells was cast into the role.

Little Buddy  
Many times we hear The Skipper calling Gilligan "Little Buddy".  One might think this was an original part of the script.  However, this was a term that Alan Hale Jr often used when referring to members on the set.  In fact, a couple of years before Gilligan's Island, Hale was using this term in a 1962 episode of The Andy Griffith Show called “The Farmer Takes a Wife”.   Hale plays a farmer named “Big” Jeff Pruitt, who refers to his partner, Barney, as his “Little Buddy.”
Moving to Gilligan's Island again, when Schwartz heard Hale use this term with his crewmates, he decided to write it into the script and that is how Gilligan began to be called The Skipper's, "Little Buddy".

(Season 1 Music Hath Charm)

Everyone is hiding in the cave from the headhunters. They are huddled around a camp fire complaining about freezing. Skipper:"If everybody really wants to get warm, I know a way, follow me. We'll give ourselves up to the cannibals, and they'll put us in a nice hot pot!" Everyone scrambles back to camp fire and resumes huddling.
