Here's a nicely dressed all-American family getting ready to say goodbye to civilization. They will make a lovely set of shrunken heads, don't you think? The Skipper's costumes changed a lot in the early years. I've seen striped shirts, white shirts, red shirts (this guy has a turtleneck), etc.
I kind of miss the colorful awnings on the boats, maybe because they were a throwback to the 1950's. You can see more of the jungle canopy nowadays, but the boats themselves have lost some of their charm.
