Throwback Thursday: Who Remembers Gidget?

Who Remembers Gidget?

 

I was showing oceanview properties today in Oceanside and we drove by the California Surf Museum - a fun place to visit if you are in town!

 

Gidget Display at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside


In looking over the museum photos I had I found this picture of the Gidget display. Some of you may be old enough to remember Gidget, a novel, a 1959 movie (with Sandra Dee)  and a 1965 - 1966 sitcom (with Sally Field), about a “boy-crazy” teenaged girl and her surfing friends in Malibu, truly an icon of the California surfing culture.  It’s easy to see why this was included in the California Surf Museum historical treasures!

I remember the Sally Fields sit-com and remember the pictures of Gidget too! You're going WAY back into the crevices of my brain today, for sure, Jeff! LOL

If I had stayed growing up in Washington, I probably would not have heard of Gidget. But being a California kid, I do remember. Thanks for the throwback!

Jeff- not only am I old enough but had the biggest crush on MoonDoggie aka James Darren!  I'm humming that song he sang.

Sally Field is also pretty cool by the same token! I really like her stuff! This is all a blast from the past,

Jeff, I'm "sorry" to say I do remember Gidget... it really dates me as I also remember Sandra Dee and not just Sally Fields.

As a teenager I had the hots for Saundra Dee. But then again as a teenager I had the hots for more than her.

Hi Jeff Dowler - 

I spent many many many summers in Surf City. My sister lives in Huntington Beach. I love the beaches (including Carlsbad) of California. Give me a covertable and Highway 1 and I can go all the way up or down the coast!
