Beginning in 1977 on ABC, Fantasy Island was produced by the legendary Aaron Spelling. In addition, it simultaneously launched Hervé Villechaize to stardom, who co-starred next to Ricardo Montalbán. The pair play a duo that runs a questionable island that grants their guests’ wildest wishes.

While the show seemed to be doing well for itself, things started to go downhill when Villechaize argued for a bigger salary. This resulted in the show being canceled just a year later.
