The Gale Storm Show is an American sitcom starring Gale Storm. The series 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. The Gale Storm Show was co-produced by Independent Television Corporation (now ITC Entertainment) and Hal Roach Studios.
The series was aired under the title Oh, Susanna in syndication.
The series is based on a cruise director, Susanna Pomeroy (Storm), on a ship traveling around the world. A cast of regular characters inhabits the ship and new situations are created as the ship moors in ports. Unlike her previous role on My Little Margie, Storm's character emits a shrill, two-fingered whistle to get people's attention. On her previous show, she would make a Trilling sound when in trouble.
