Uncle Artie's Story Time is a children's radio program starring a radio personality named Uncle Artie, who reads popular children's fairy tales. Mrs. Howell falls asleep listening to the story of "Cinderella," eventually having a dream about it. It's possible but unconfirmed that this is the program Gilligan is listening to when he hears "Goldilocks and the Three Bears."
- Other radio programs the Castaways listen to are Take a Dare, Old Doctor Young, Oddities In The News and Blaze Of Noon.
- In addition to "Cinderella," Gilligan also dreams himself into the fairy tale, "Jack and the Beanstalk," in "V" For Vitamins. He acts out "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" at the start of Our Vines Have Tender Apes.
- Ginger also tells Gilligan a fairy tale in Gilligan's Personal Magnetism.
