Trivia:
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 »

Inspired by "The Best Years of Our Lives"?, 6 March 2002
Author: jeffhill1 (jeffhill1@hotmail.com) from Sapporo, Japan

In hindsight, I think "My Little Margie" was a TV sit com version of the Frederick March and Teresa Wright characters in "The Best Years of Our Lives" (if Al Stevenson and Peggy had been on speed). Charles Farrel played a vice president at Honeywell and Todd Investment Counselors. He played Vernon Albright as a guy who would really prefer to apply his considerable financial expertise in the back room with the financial ledgers, but who always seemed to find that his main job was in making a good impression on the rich matron client of the week so that she would give her account or keep her account at Honeywell and Todd. The more he would try to maintain a proper image, the more Margie would get him into some madcap situation in which they were doing things like running through a haunted castle and swinging fireplace pokers at strange characters in medieval armor who were emerging from a huge fireplace and clanking down the hallways. Situations would reach a fever pitch of hysteria; but as Gale Storm always pointed out to Farrel at the end, "It all worked out. And Dad always shrugged with a sigh of a smile, "Well, that's my Little Margie."
