1952: 'My Little Margie' Debuts on CBS
June 16, 2019  | By TV WW
 
This day in 1952 marked the first telecast of the CBS sitcom My Little Margie. Originally produced as a summer replacement for I Love Lucy, the show starred Gale Storm as the 21-year-old daughter of a widowed New York investment banker (played by one-time silent film star Charles Farrell).

"Little" Margie closely protected her eligible father from various women while simultaneously stretching the limits of her father's parental control over her own social life. Their next-door neighbor, Mrs. Odetts, served as Margie's partner-in-crime.

The show alternated between CBS and NBC during its four-season run. Original episodes of the show were also produced for CBS radio and ran concurrently with the televised version. After the show's cancellation, Gale Storm went on to star in The Gale Storm Show from 1956 to 1960.
