The edifice used for Lawrence house is on the back lot known as the "Columbia Ranch". Gidget's home is situated next door to the principal residence on Bewitched, which was in production at the same time. In select episodes, Samantha and Darrin Stephens' house is visible in exterior shots from Gidget's front yard. See more »
I am hopelessly addicted to this show, which is way before my time and whose reruns never reach my local TV market. I am fascinated by the stunningly progressive messages that pop up, more in the earliest episodes, I think. (Gidget is such a free thinker, and she can be very good at asserting herself.) They are frequently obliterated or directly contradicted by the old fashioned values of the day, (Gidget takes shop, learns to fix cars expertly, but doesn't apply those skills later when her date's car breaks down, because it's unfeminine) and I am wondering who was writing the scripts? What was going on?
