Waiting For Watubi
Season: 1
Episode: 10
Air date: 1964-12-05

While digging, the Skipper uncovers a carved statue of a Tiki God. He then believes a curse has fallen on him for disturbing the resting-place of Watubi, and that his days are numbered. Gilligan dresses up as Watubi, and performs a special ritual dance that the Skipper believes will lift the curse. It is an earth-shaking experience!

Gilligan's Island had a lot of island décor but Waiting for Watubi was one of the few times an actual tiki idol was shown.
 
Do you ever get the impression that the Professor didn’t really want to leve the island? I don’t think he tried very hard, too busy making golf carts out of coconut trees.
