She acts sort of teenage

Just in-between age

Looks about 4 foot 3

Although she's just

Small fry

Just about so-high

Gidget is the one for me

A regular tomboy

But dressed for a prom

Boy, how cute

Can one gal be?

Although she's not king size

Her finger is ring size

Gidget is the one for me

If she says she loves you

You can bet your boots

She loves you

If she says she hates you

That can also mean

She loves you

It very well may be

She's just a baby

Speaking romantically

If that's a bad feature

I'll be the teacher

That's the way

It's going to be

Gidget is the one for me

This summer was

the turning point in my life.

For 16 years, I'd gone

blindly along enjoying myself

like a fool who never guesses

what's in store for her.


Oh, Patti, please...

Now, hear this,

Francie Lawrence.

The day, the hour,

and the moment has arrived.

Not for me, it hasn't.

Aw, gee, Patti, last year

and the year before,

didn't we all have a ball?

I mean, why can't we go on

being like that always?

Why do we have to spoil it all?

Keep your shirts on.

She's coming!

Oh, be realistic, Francie.

Now, ask yourself

one vital question.

To date, what has your

life added up to?

Okay, so you're an "A"

student. That's parent stuff.

Do you know anybody else

it impresses?

No, I guess not.

And as for this

king-size fiddle...

It's probably a symptom

of your whole problem.

Well, I'll go get my gear.

About her problem,

exactly what

would you say it is?

Well, she's more fish than dish.

To put it bluntly, the kid's studied

up on about everything but sex,

and let's face it, like most

of us, she's pushing 17.

Oh, not till next month.

Oh, listen, B.L.,

you don't have to go.

You've got social security

just by wearing

Buck's fraternity pin,

but take it from me,

Francie has got to make it

this summer,

or she'll be a social outcast.

Oh! Oh, hi, Mrs. Lawrence.

Oh, hello, girls.

So long, Mom.

Bye-bye, dear.

Have a good time.


Betty-Louise, do you think

Francie didn't want to go?

Oh, she's just a bit skittish.

After all,

this is her first manhunt.

Her first what?


Count them, girls.

Six gorgeous hunks of male,

almost enough

for second helpings.

Well, what's holding us up?

Well, hey!

We're, we're not just

gonna barge in on them.


Please, a maneuver like

this takes technique.

Hey, check this

swing, Lover Boy.

That looks like your style.


Peel, girl.

Make like you can't

see them for sand.

We'll have them drooling.

Hey, hotshot, check this one.

Hubba, hubba, hubba.

Hey, Red! Hello, Red!

Oh, hey, look at this...



Did you get the look

that doll gave me?

I swear it scorched

my bathing suit half off.

What are you trying to

do, spoil the picture?

Come on, get with it.

This is supposed

to co-op venture.

My aching back.

I wonder what's

taking them so long.

You know, something's screwy.

Well, they're not even looking

this way.

Maybe they didn't notice us.

Hey, remember?


Okay, Babe Ruth, knock it off.


Look, set her

straight, will you,

before she has us signed up

with the major leagues.

Hey, Moondoggie,

you're not going for that

jailbait caper, are you?

Hey, kid.

Do you see those girls

over there?

Tell them the man said to take

the toy back the nursery.

All right?

The man said for me to take

the toy back to the nursery.


Aw, come off it, kids.

Those guys

just aren't interested.

So who needs them?

Honey, maybe you need

a few hormone shots.

Well, if this is a manhunt,

I'll take swimming.

I'm going to get my gear.
