My Little Margie:Kangaroo Story is funny if contrived
3 September 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Freddie managed to sneak a kangaroo into the apartment. Margie wants to get rid of it. She puts it in a usually empty room. Her father Vern is expected to meet and entertain neighbor Roberta's father from Minnesota. He sees kangaroo in empty room and goes crazy unknowingly bumping into the Minnesota father. When Roberta introduces Vern to her father, father threatens to send daughter back home with him! Having gotten rid of kangaroo, Margie tries to get him back to prove her father's sanity. Vern pays a zoo keeper to keep zoo's kangaroo in apartment for awhile. Charlie the doorman, who Vern also couldn't convince of kangaroo presence in apartment, is now seeing with own eyes and gets a little scared. Roberta's father still hasn't seen one since either one keeps moving when Vern tries to show him! Finally, zoo keeper comes to get his pay and Charlie is in elevator trying to calm other kangaroo down! Plot is often silly but is pretty funny in a "let's-see-how-we-can-top-this" kind of way. Willie Best as Charlie comes off best even though some of his mannerisms may come off as a little racist today. That's Hillary Brooke from The Abbott and Costello Show as Roberta. Worth seeing if you're interested in wacky '50s sitcoms.
