From the movie "The Wackiest Wagon Train in the West"(1976)
...which simply strung together three episodes of the not very popular "Gilligan's Island" remake "Dusty's Trail" (1973)
Here's how it goes:
Produced by Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of Gilligan's Island, this series took the
character of Gilligan, changed his name to Dusty, placed him on a wagon train and dared him
to try to find the west! They surrounded Dusty with very recognizable characters -
The wagon master played by Forrest Tucker (Skipper);
a rich couple, Ivor Francis and Lynn Wood (Mr. & Mrs.
Howell); saloon girl Jeannine Riley (Ginger);
school marm Lori Saunders (Mary Ann); and an
engineer played by Bud Cort (Professor). With Dusty
as guide, the wagon train wandered all over the place,
and it was a sure bet that this group would never
make its way west, in much the same way the
castaways were never able to get off the island thanks
to the lovable, well-meaning Gilligan...Starring:
Bob Denver - Dusty,
Forrest Tucker - Wagonmaster Callahan, also
Ivor Francis - Mr. Carson Brookhaven,
Lynn Wood - Mrs. Brookhaven,
Jeannine Riley - Lulu McQueen,
Lori Saunders - Betsy,
Bill Cort - Andy

Yes I know part is the 80's but its in the 90s for the fact that Scary Stories 3 : More Tales To Chill Your Bones came out in 1991 and started me on getting this series in the 90's. Some kids can relate to this and did the same? You know it peaked your interest and you had to get the whole set! LOL
Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark is a series of three children's books written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. The scary stories of the title are pieces of folklore and urban legends collected and adapted by Schwartz. The titles of the books are Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (1981), More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (1984), and Scary Stories 3 : More Tales To Chill Your Bones (1991).
The first volume was published in 1981, and the books have subsequently been collected in both a box set and a single volume. There is also an audiobook version of each book, read by George S. Irving. Reprints of the books with new illustrations by Brett Helquist have been announced.
This series is listed as being the most challenged series of books from 1990–1999 and seventh most challenged from 2000-2009by the American Library Association for its violence. The surreal and nightmarish illustrations contained within are also a frequently challenged component of the original books.
To celebrate the books' 30th anniversary, Scholastic re-released them with new illustrations from Brett Helquist, the illustrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events. This has come under criticism from fans of Gammell's illustrations, citing that they are not as effective or as scary as the originals.

If you've read Tuesdays With Morrie, you'll know what this is. If you haven't, you ought to! Here's a brief explanation: Morrie Schwartz was a beloved sociology professor at Brandeis University. When he was diagnosed with ALS in the early 1990s, his remarkable way of openly and candidly dealing with his impending death inspired a local newspaper article--which then prompted an interview with Ted Koppel on Nightline. By chance, one of Morrie's former students, sportswriter Mitch Albom, happened to see the broadcast. Albom was inspired to reconnect with his favorite professor every Tuesday until his death where Morrie "taught" one last course to Mitch about life, death, philosophy, and other topics. Albom took these sessions and turned them into Tuesdays With Morrie, one of the finest books of the 20th century. This clip is a segment from Morrie's original Nightline interview.
