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 »
Gidget herself was a lot of fun. I have good memories of the series.
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.
