The "Return" TV Movie Sequels (1978,1979,1981,2001)

There were 3 Sequel movies. The first had them rescued and proved so successful that it spawned a second and third. By the third movie, the charm was lost, ratings were down and no more were made. In 2001 Dawn Wells co-produced a TV movie bio-pic, where she, Bob Denver and Russel Johnson appear as themselves and remember what life was like during the series. In the memory scenes, they and the rest of the cast and crew are played by actors, while Dawn narrates.
