Francie was made after Gidget?
I've heard this too. That Girl didn't air until 1966.
Interesting! I see the resemblance with Sally Fields’ Gidget.
I was told she was made to resemble That Girl Marlo Thomas.>>
Marlo was too old, Francie was a teenager 1965 was closer to Her early 1966 release for toy fair
If you do a search for Gidget, her style was like Francie's
