The theme song was titled "Bows and Strings in Teasing" by Alexander Laszlo. It was originally written the Republic film The French Key (1946). Other musical cues were supplied through David Chudnow's MUTEL Music for Television Library. There was no original music created for this show, although Laszlo did a new arrangement of his theme for this series, which is now known as the "My Little Margie" Theme. See more »
They don't make them this sweet and pure anymore. Even "Family Matters' and "Full House" weren't as innocent as this show.
This starred former "B movie" queen Gale Storm and major Silent Screen star Charles Farrell. They make quite a TV pair those two, almost like a husband and wive, but they're father and daughter. Get this, they spent ALL their vacations together which is kind of weird even back in the 50's.
Gale Storm plays Margie Albright. Margie is nearly 30, not married, no job, lives at home, AND still getting an allowance! She spends her time whining about how little money she gets, scheming to find ways of making more money or helping her Dad out of a jam. All this usually gets her into a jam.
Her Father, Vern Albright, is played by Charles Farrell. He works for Honeywell & Todd, an investment firm. Vern is always getting the firm new clients and trying to become a partner in the business. Mr Honeywell will not let that happen. How about Mr Todd?? You never get to see him. There is a cast of characters to add to the fun. Hilary Brooks(The Enchanted Cottage, Fuller Brush Man,...) as Vern's on/off girlfriend, Don Hayden as Margie's on/off boyfriend, and Gertrude Hoffman as crazy old Mrs. Odetts.
I use to watch this show when I was a kid. They showed repeats of it after church on Sundays. I thought it was neat how they started off the show with their pictures talking. My husband thinks the show is one of the best ever made and laughs like crazy when we watch his "My Little Margie" VHS box sets(!). I think that the show is an interesting and sweet, and that my husband needs to get out more......
