Did Gidget ever have a mom? Did they ever mention her in the show? If so what happened to her?
Where did Gidgie get her nickname from? Her real name is Francis.

hi, i don't know what happened to gidget's mom, but gidget got her nickname from a combo of "girl midget". the real gidget was only about 5'2" or so, and when she first met the surfer guys on the beach they called her gidget, a combination of girl and midget. yes, there really was a real gidget, just pick up the book entitled "gidget". her father wrote it about her!:)

Gidget's mother was alive in the movies that preceded the series. I guess the producers thought there would be more storyline potential if Russ Lawrence was a widower. A nitpick: Gidget's real name was Frances, rather than Francis (female version vs. male version).

Thanks for your reply and help. Also thanks for giving me the correct way to spell the name Frances, as a girl's name. I appreciate your and GidgetGirly's help, and thanks to anyone else who would like to reply too. :)
