Frances "Gidget" Lawrence lives with her widowed college professor father in Southern California. Anne is her older sister who is married to John Cooper, an obtuse but lovable psychology student. Gidget spends most of her free time, hanging out with friends and surfing at the beach. She also has a knack for getting in and out of trouble. Gidget speaks to the audience during her journey to adulthood, letting them know exactly what's on her mind and what she's discovered about life. She also receives moral instruction from her father and gains wisdom from her experiences. Written by
Of course, I could never say that "Gidget" (a fairly goofy, but, otherwise wholesome, mid-1960s, TV Sit-Com) came anywhere near to being great entertainment - But (whether you're male or female) this decidedly wacky, teen-oriented series did offer up (as a bonus) plenty of cheesecake/beefcake, beach party, eye-candy for any viewer whose attention (like mine) couldn't stay focused on Gidget's endless school-girl crushes and her frivolous, day-to-day dramas.
Starring a chubby-cheeked, 18-year-old, Sally Field (playing the part of the pert, virginal, 15-year-old, Frances "Gidget" Lawrence), this short-lived TV show (which only lasted for one season) provided lots of moral instruction for boy-crazy, California, surfer-girls (everywhere) who were out to snag themselves a cute surfer-boy, but required his solemn oath of total respect when it came to the likes of "going-too-far". (nudge. nudge. wink. wink)
