    Premise: Adventures of a 15½ year old daughter of a single dad who loves to surf and change boyfriends
    One episode had 15½ year old Gidget posing for a 24 year old photographer. Instead of the storyline being about pedophilia it was about having her heart broken by an older man.
    Sally Field at 19 portrayed a 15½ year old.
    The show was cancelled after just one season.
    Despite her father being a UCLA professor and she being a high school student, we rarely see a school room setting.
    Gidget's sister Anne is a brunette in the premiere episode and a red head in the rest of the series.
    Gidget has a different boyfriend in almost every episode.
    Almost all the characters are white.
    This series launched Sally Field's career.
    Actresses Barbara Hershey, Bonnie Franklin and Beverly Adams launched their careers as teen friends of Gidget.
    Despite spending the summer in the top ten, ABC refused to renew the show because they would have to admit they made a mistake in cancelling it.
    Many of the episodes were written by women.
    Gidget's house and set is used as Wisteria Lane on 'Desperate Housewives.'
    They shared some of their set with 'Bewitched.'
