Gidget - The Complete Series
March is shaping up to be a big month for 1960's sitcoms on DVD.

Today, TVShowsonDVD.com reported that Gidget - The Complete Series, The Flying Nun - The Complete First Season, and Bewitched - The Complete Third Season will all be available on March 21. The March date for Gidget and The Flying Nun is a lot sooner than the fall 2006 date that was rumored a few weeks ago.
