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 »
This is one of the cutest shows of that time period. I would watch it every day after school. Sally Fields was wonderfully funny, adorably cute and just wonderful to watch. It was innocent and sweet and just plain, nothing fancy about it. It was boys, and friends and lots of worries for her father who was funny about it. It was growing up, it was enjoying being a teenager it was fun and it was exploring. Shows are made that way anymore. Times and things have changed its a pity, it was an endearing show with a sweet cast. To bad its not around for others to see and some teens to watch. It was before sex was in every teen show, it was before kids were sleeping with one another. Innocent thats what it is, where is innocence at now. I would recommend it to anyone who likes simple, and sweet.
