George Wyle (March 22, 1916 – May 2, 2003), born Bernard Weissman, was an Americanmarker orchestra leader and composer best known for having written the theme song to 1960s television sitcom Gilligan's Island.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s his orchestra served as backup for a number of Columbia Records singers, including Doris Day. Some of the recordings (including "I Said My Pajamas " in 1949 and "I Didn't Slip, I Wasn't Pushed, I Fell" in 1950) were of his own compositions.

He wrote with Sherwood Schwartz The Ballad of Gilligan's Island, the theme song for Gilligan's Island. He also wrote the Christmas song The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (first recorded by Andy Williams in 1963) and more than 400 other songs.

Wyle served as the musical director for The Flip Wilson Show during the early 1970's and also served the music director and arranger for John Denver and the Muppets - A Christmas Together
