Trivia

The theme song was titled "Bows and Strings in Teasing" by Alexander Laszlo. It was originally written the Republic film The French Key (1946). Other musical cues were supplied through David Chudnow's MUTEL Music for Television Library. There was no original music created for this show, although Laszlo did a new arrangement of his theme for this series, which is now known as the "My Little Margie" Theme. See more »

My Favorite Series
10 July 2009 | by jayraskin1See all my reviews

I was born in 1953, so I was not old enough to watch the series when it originally aired from 1952 to 1956, yet I remember most of the episodes, so I must have seen them in reruns in the late 50's and early 60's.

I've watched about a dozen of them this week since hearing that Gail Storm passed away last week. I've been surprised by the variable quality. Some of them are ridiculous and poorly written, while others are masterful gems, as clever and inventive as any comedy series that has been on television.

So far I've noticed that one episode is almost the pilot for the Beverly Hillbillies (including the use of the name Ellie Mae for the daughter), while other episodes seem to play riffs on crime, detective, Captain Midnight and quiz shows.

When we are children, we don't know what the world outside our home and school is really like (at least that was the case growing up in the 1950's). I found the world on "My Little Margie" to be quite realistic when I was a child. She wasn't famous, she wasn't rich, and nobody ever got killed or died. So it was like the real world to me. Although people got punched in the world of Margie more frequently than occurred in the real world (generally about two times per episode).

Margie was easily able to fool people with virtually any disguise she chose from episode to episode. However, that seemed realistic to me. For some reason I figured the world would be that way when I grew up. I would put on disguises to fool and trick people into doing things they would ordinarily refuse to do. I am sorry that I grew up and found that the world is not like the world in "My Little Margie". People are not easily tricked and I have never found an occasion to pretend to be anything but what I am.

When I watch the show now, I remember myself being 5 or 6 or 7 and watching and enjoying it. It brought much joy to me then and does so now 50 years later.

Everybody in the cast is a delight and has great comic timing, which I suspect is to the credit of the director Hal Yates.

Of the three top women stars of 1950's American television, Lucille Ball, Joan Davis and Gail Storm, we should remember that Lucy and Joan were in their 40's, while Gail Storm was only 30 when her show started. While I thought that Lucy and Joan would make great moms, Gail was the woman who I really wanted as a wife-girlfriend-playmate. She was my first crush. She often acted the wild child, but could also play sophisticated and sexy really well.

I would love it if someone came out with the full series on DVD. I think it would be the only full series that I would want to watch all 140 episodes again.
