Gidget herself was a lot of fun. I have good memories of the series.
29 September 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Frances 'Gidget' Lawrence, was adorable young Sally Field (Forest Gump), the girl who was always going to the beach with a wind breaker. Her best friend was always all covered up except for her face, which was well shaded by the huge hat. She was allergic to the sun! I always wondered why they had to wear wind breakers to go to the beach. Later I lived in California and found that the water of the Pacific Ocean is very cold. The beaches were hilly. I don't remember where the series actually took place. The series was black and white. I watched it dubbed. I remember the show as a whole but not much detail. Gidget herself was a lot of fun. I have good memories of the series.
