The Gale Storm Show is a sitcom co-produced by ITC Entertainment and Hal Roach Studios. It premiered on September 29, 1956, and ran until 1960 for 143 half-hour black-and-white episodes, initially on CBS and in its last year on ABC. In syndication, it was retitled Oh, Susanna.



The series was based on a cruise director, Susanna Pomeroy, on a ship travelling around the world. A cast of regular characters inhabited the ship and new situations were created by the ship mooring in ports. Unlike her previous role on My Little Margie, Gale Storm's character of Susanna would let out a shrill two fingered whistle to get people's attention. In her previous show, she would make a Trilling sound when in trouble.
