My dear guests–Welcome to Fantasy Island!

Welcome to Mr. Roarke‘s Fantasy Island! This is an unofficial fan site for the great Aaron Spelling series produced by Columbia Pictures (now owned by Sony Corporation) and starring Ricardo Montalbán and Hervé Villechaize.

The first made-for-television movie pilot aired in 1977. A second made-for-tv movie pilot aired in 1978, and the series began airing the next week. That ran from 1978-1984 on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) television network in the United States.

In 1998, a sequel/spinoff/reboot version of Fantasy Island aired on ABC. This series starred Malcolm McDowell and lasted for one season.

Your hosts for this excursion to the Fantasy Island resort are Kim & Gordon Long of Portland, Oregon.
