Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalban) operates an exclusive island resort with the help of his dwarf assistant, Tattoo (Herve Villechaize). This resort is unlike any other, however, in that each visitor is treated to the realization of his or her wildest fantasies. The suave, mysterious Roarke appears to possess the boundless capability to realize any dream, while his faithful servant wins people over with his charming smile, and his memorable line "De plane! De plane!" The episodes are comprised of two segments, each introducing a new guest and pet fantasy. In realizing their dreams, however, the guests often learn something about themselves, as well as the danger involved in actually getting what you've always wanted. In the first season of the 1978 show, a prince lives as a common man while two working class girls live the jet-setting life on the island. A woman with amnesia uses voodoo to regain her memory, a prostitute settles down, a man becomes the most irresistible guy in the world, and a comedian wishes for a simpler life. Guest stars include Lesley Nielson (AIRPLANE), Ed Begley Jr. (KINGDOM HOSPITAL, A MIGHTY WIND), Jerry Van Dyke (FRESNO), and baseball player Steve Garvey.;
