My Little Margie: Meet Mr. Murphy is pretty hilarious animal show
15 September 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Margie's father Vern refuses to give his daughter a $50 raise in allowance just so she can give it to boyfriend Freddie. He has enough troubles not being let in on boss' deal with a movie producer. So Margie goes behind father's back at Honeywell and gets a job to housesit the movie's star: a chimp named Mr. Murphy! All the expected shenanigans that occur are funny in often hilarious entry. Vern eventually makes a deal with Freddie to get rid of monkey. Margie finds out and asks Freddie to keep Mr. Murphy for awhile to teach father a lesson. With Vern kept in the dark, when his boss and the producer arrive they ask for Mr. Murphy and are upset when he is gone! All's well that end's well except for Vern being chased by the chimp. Like I said, pretty hilarious and it was nice to see Willie Best as elevator man Charlie do his pop-eyed expression when he saw the monkey! Worth seeing for fans of '50s TV sitcoms.
