History

In the pilot episode this group of musical siblings convince their mother to help them out by singing with them as they record a pop song in their garage. Through the efforts of the 10-year-old son Danny, they find a manager who helps actually make the song a into a top-40 hit. After some more convincing, mother finally agrees that the family can go on tour. They acquire an old schoolbus and paint it, then depart to Las Vegas for their first live gig at Caesars Palace. Caesars Palace is a luxury hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. ...


Each subsequent episode features the band performing in various locations and types of venues. The episodes would often contrast their suburban life with the adventures of a show-biz family "on the road". The series originally ran from September 25, 1970 until August 31, 1974 on the ABC television network, as part of the Friday night lineup following The Brady Bunch. It had a few subsequent runs in syndication. is the 268th day of the year (269th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Created by Bernard Slade, the series was inspired by and loosely based on The Cowsills, a real pop-music family famous in the late sixties. In fact in its early development the Cowsill children were actually approached by the producers to be featured on The Partridge Family, though the children rejected the offer when they learned their real-life mother and band member Barbara would not be included in the cast. Bernard Slade (born May 2, 1930) is a Canadian playwright and screenwriter. ... The Cowsills were a band specializing in what would later be defined as Pop or Bubblegum Rock. ...


The show starred Academy Award-winner Shirley Jones as mother Shirley Partridge and David Cassidy (Jones' real-life stepson) as her eldest son Keith. The remaining Partridge children were played by Susan Dey as Laurie, Danny Bonaduce as Danny, Jeremy Gelbwaks as Chris and Suzanne Crough as Tracy. Dave Madden played Reuben Kincaid, who was their manager and family friend. After the first season, the dark-haired Gelbwaks who played young Chris was replaced by a blond actor, Brian Forster. It was reported by teen magazines in 1971 that this was because his family simply moved away, but years later it was disclosed by cast members that young Gelbwalks had "behavior problems" on the set, and got replaced after he bit one of the featured players.

A dog named "Simone" was also featured in the first season, though she was phased out of production early in the second season. Like "Tiger" on The Brady Bunch, the dog simply disappeared without an explanation. The Brady Bunch is an American television situation comedy, based around a large blended family. ...


The Partridge Family was produced for ABC by Screen Gems television, which was just finishing its run with The Monkees, another show about a fictional music group. The company promoted the success of the show by releasing a series of albums featuring the music of the family band, though most cast members did not actually play on the recordings. The Partridge Family sound was created by a group of studio singers and musicians, led by producer Wes Farrell. Although David Cassidy was originally cast with the intent to lip sync with the rest of the cast, he convinced Farrell just weeks into production that he could sing well, and was allowed to join the studio ensemble as the lead singer. (Several songs were made without Cassidy as lead, and were featured in some of the early episodes and on the first album.) He and Shirley Jones, who sang background, were the only cast members who were actually featured on the recordings. And though it was obvious to most viewers that the cast was lip-syncing, The Partridge Family became an instant phenomenon, not only as a TV show, but a band that produced actual hit songs. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... The Monkees were a pop-rock quartet created and based in Los Angeles in 1965 for an NBC American television series of the same name. ...

The Partridge Family's biggest hit came in 1970 with the song "I Think I Love You" (lyrics), which began climbing in September and peaked at number one on the Billboard charts in December of that year. (The song was written by Tony Romeo, who had previously written several of the Cowsills' hits.) A companion LP, The Partridge Family Album reached number four. Other Partridge singles, "I'll Meet You Halfway," "Doesn't Somebody Want To Be Wanted," and "I Woke Up in Love This Morning" would also chart high on Billboard. The theme songs "When We're Singing," and its successor "C'Mon, Get Happy" also became popular favorites, as well as album cuts "I Can Feel Your Heartbeat" and "Point Me In The Direction Of Albuquerque". Despite the "bubblegum" label and prefabricated nature of the "band", the Partridge Family's records sold very well.

As the show and other associated merchandising took off, David Cassidy became an overnight teen idol. Although the Partridge Family did not actually exist as a live band, Cassidy launched a solo singing career, touring with his own group of musicians and performing Partridge songs as well as hits from his own albums. And in the midst of his overwhelming rise to fame, Cassidy soon grew tired of the show. In the summer of 1972 he gave a very candid interview to Rolling Stone magazine in which he attempted to distance himself from the squeaky-clean image of Keith Partridge. For other uses, see Teen idol (disambiguation). ... This article is about the magazine. ...


By the fourth season, due to Cassidy's looming departure and a decline in the ratings an effort was made by the producers to breathe new life into the show by introducing a precocious 4-year-old neighbor named "Ricky" (Ricky Segall) to occasionally sing children's songs with the band. In another parallel to The Brady Bunch, who introduced young "cousin Oliver" during it's simultaneous final season, it was widely perceived that the show had "jumped the shark". Knowing it would not survive, ABC moved the show from its 8:30 Friday night slot to Saturday at 8:00, directly opposite the hit All in the Family. After 96 episodes and ten Partridge Family albums the show was cancelled. Jumping the shark is a slang term used by television critics since the 1990s. ...

The Partridges had a brief resurgence in animated form, which saw the family propelled into the future. The animated Partridges first appeared when the kids did a series of guest spots on Goober and the Ghost Chasers. That idea evolved into a CBS Saturday morning Hanna-Barbera-produced cartoon, Partridge Family 2200 A.D. (also called "The Partridge Family in Outer Space" when re-run later). Shirley Jones and David Cassidy did not voice their animated counterparts, and Susan Dey and Dave Madden had very limited involvement with this cartoon. Goober and the Ghost Chasers was an ABC Saturday morning cartoon (September 8, 1973 - August 30, 1975; 16 30-minute episodes) produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. ...

Though more popular in its time than its Friday night companion The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family did not become as widely circulated in syndicated re-runs. Consequently the Bradys, who have never been off the air since 1969 have become more well-known to subsequent generations. Nickelodeon did feature a heavily publicized run of The Partridge Family in the mid-90s, along with The Brady Bunch, as part of its Nick-At-Nite line-up. The network used interviews and commercials featuring cast members, and even created a new version of the Mondrian-esque Family bus for promotion. It was during this time that the "competition" element between the two shows was popularized with special features on Nick and MTV.

In late 1999 two different made-for-TV movies aired on different networks; The David Cassidy Story and Come On Get Happy attempted to tell the story behind the series. While both movies were criticized by fans as being inaccurate, they did recreate imagery from the series. Some of the original musicians were gathered together to re-record music for the "Cassidy" movie, and "Come On Get Happy" even featured another replica of the bus which was later auctioned off on an internet auction site.


A modernized version of the bus was created for a new promotion in 2004, when VH1 premiered In Search of the New Partridge Family. This talent competition in the format of American Idol sought a new cast for a contemporary version of the sitcom. The elimination type program aired seven episodes in which a panel of judges selected a new Partridge Family cast from auditioners across the country. The resulting pilot episode of The New Partridge Family aired in January of 2005, but due to low ratings VH1 opted not to produce any more episodes. VH1 (VH-1: Video Hits One until 1994) is an American cable television channel that was created in January 1985 by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment, at the time a division of Warner Communications and owners of MTV.
