The cartoon picked up where the prime time show left off: the gang is still stranded on an uncharted desert isle. The premise of the cartoon was carried over from the live-action series as well. Gilligan, in a way that only he can, invariably thwarts the efforts of the rest of the gang to get off the island. One addition to the animated version was Gilligan's pet monkey, Stubby. Most of the episodes ended with an educational slant, wherein Skipper and Gilligan would discuss whatever lesson they had learned that day.
