Russell Johnson, who famously played the Professor on the various versions of "Gilligan's Island," has passed away after having suffered from kidney failure. He was 89.

Johnson's death leaves only two surviving members of the original cast - Tina Louise and Dawn Wells, who played Ginger and Mary Ann, and who became not just characters in a show but also cultural barometers of female sexuality.
