Ricardo Montalban and Hervé Villechaize star as Mr. Roarke and his assistant Tattoo on FANTASY ISLAND, a one-hour series from Spelling/Goldberg Productions.

One of the most popular shows to come from producers Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg, FANTASY ISLAND has achieved cult-like status with audiences around the world. The show, which ran for six highly successful seasons, features Montalban as Mr. Roarke, a wealthy and mysterious owner of an island where, for a price, people can come to realize their lifelong fantasies.

Assisted by his able sidekick Tattoo, played by Villechaize, Roarke grants all sorts of wishes to people who want to see what their lives would have been, if only…

Arriving by plane, the island's guests are treated to everything from reliving a wedding day and reuniting divorced parents, starting life over with a new job or social standing, and meeting that man or woman of one's dreams. However, while some of Roarke's guests find their fantasies realized, many discover that it's best to be careful what you wish for – for a fantasy life doesn't always turn out as one might have planned.
