Gidget's Search for the Dingbats
5 September 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

The popular rock group the Dingbats have arrived in Los Angeles. Gidget (Sally Field) is determined to find where they are staying to get their autographs to display at the school dance. She drags her best friend Larue (Lynette Winter) along, ala Lucy and Ethel from "I Love Lucy", to celebrity homes. They find a florist truck of "Le Fleur de Beverly Hills- Floriste to the Stars" and go to the florist (familiar character actor Irwin Charone). Gidget pretends that she is friends with Liz Montgomery (yet another series reference to "Bewitched") and orders a single $20 rose to be delivered to the Dingbats. She follows the delivery truck to find the address and then sells it in the form of a $5 map to 10 fellow girls at school- a supposed secret group that begins leaking out the groups whereabouts. Gidget and Larue watch a news program where the two-man Dingbat group of Herbie (Jimmy Murphy) and Arthur (Andrew Belling) tell the importance of their secrecy. Arthur is getting married the following day and wants just one day of privacy. Gidget decides to warn them before daylight as inevitable trouble ensues.
