Thanks for the articles. They scream 1982, especially Randy Hamilton talking about his new Firebird with the T-tops.

Randy followed in Michael Young's footsteps by hosting two shows he did. Young hosted a show on early Nickelodeon called America Goes Bananaz then left and Randy replaced him. Young then hosted Kids Are People Too and Randy later hosted on that show as well.

It's interesting to see Caryn Richman on Texas. She later played in The New Gidget 1985-1988 with Dean Butler (from Little House), Sydney Penny (AMC) and William Schallert (I think he has played everyone's dad at some point).

Fred Kohner who created the franchise said out of all the movie/TV Gidget's, Caryn was the most like his daughter Kathy (Gidget) who he wrote the books about. He died shortly after production of this series and I guess the franchise died with him since there hasn't been any more updated projects with the character.
