Torey Peck (Patty McCormack) is a very pretty but mischievous 12-year-old girl who lives in a small American town.
She is not interested in “girlie things” such as makeup and dresses and loves her life as a tomboy.
She likes doing “guy stuff” like playing sport and refuses to grow up – preferring to remain a tomboy rather than face the world as a young lady.
Stories follow the events in Torey’s life as she enjoys doing
what she does, but deep down knowing that, like her equally pretty girlfriend, Francesca (Reba Waters), she will one day abandon her baseball mitt and fishing rod for a dress and a date with a boy.
The series premiered on 5 May 1959.
