Margie is an average teenager but it's the 1920's and so many things are changing. Living with her parents and brother Cornell, she has a lively flapper friend in Maybelle while Heywood and Johnny both like her. Adapting to the Jazz Age creates lots of situations.
I saw this show when it was first on and I loved it, as did my family, and we were disappointed when it went off the air. I was eleven years old and I still remember those characters. Dave Willock would always be, "Harvey," to us and we always shouted that name, enthusiastically whenever we saw him anywhere else. He was Harvey to us despite the fact that we also liked him in, "Queen of Out Space," and many other shows. Like Cynthia Pepper, the search for whom led to finding this site, I miss Penny Parker and wonder what became of her. I recall her every time I see Sherilyn Fenn. To this day, I have never seen the Twentieth Century Fox logo without automatically going to the "Margie," version of the musical introduction that was the lead-in for the, "Margie," theme, which I still recall word for word. At home (I grew up in Manhattan)when I was a kid, I was pretty gangly and accident prone. Every time I tripped or knocked something over the family would shout, in unison, "Mamma, Cornell did it again!" This was based on Margie's loud whine, at the end of one episode in which her brother had been particularly troublesome to her in her attempts to secure a date with a boy. It's the only episode I recall, thanks to that family joke. It's a fond memory.
