Margie (sitcom, starring Cynthia Pepper)

     (ABC Primetime, 1961 - 62)

     [A single-season sitcom -- about a teenage girl
     growing up in New England in the 1920's; although the TV
     series was loosely based upon a theatrical film of the
     1940s starring Jean Crain which had the same characters
     and setting, the producers tried to make the situation 
     analogous to the problems of growing up in the 1960s --
     comparing them to those of the "Roaring Twenties"; and
     although the problems of keeping pot smoking from your
     parents could be compared to the problems of keeping them
     from knowing about your bathtub gin, apparently there
     were not enough people in the audience who saw these
     similarities or cared, to keep the show on the air.
     Not to be confused with the 1952 sitcom "My Little Margie"
     starring Gale Storm, which see.]
