Did You Know?


During the first season, the theme song had a different arrangement, different lyrics and even a different title, "When We're Singing". However, during the second season, the more familiar arrangement of the theme song, with the more familiar title, "Come On Get Happy", was used, and remained the theme song throughout the run of the show.

The interior of the Partridge home was shot on a set. But, in episodes where there are shots from the exterior of the Partridge home through the open front door, there is a wall seen a few feet beyond the door. However, in the scenes from the interior of the home, there is no wall in that spot. See more »

Favorite show growing up
16 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was my favorite show growing up, and I still enjoy it now. It's stood up much better than most shows of that era because it's still funny, and has surprisingly good music. Shirley Jones, David Cassidy, Danny Bonaduce, Dave Madden and Susan Dey all contributed to the show's success, and had a good chemistry between them. The interplay especially between Keith, Danny, and Reuben is priceless. I liked the first season best because of the freshness of the concept, and cause I think Jeremy Gelbwaks was the better (and cuter) Chris Partridge. Never seen such enormous blue eyes as Jeremy's! Tracy was definitely stiff in the part and couldn't seem to bang a tambourine in sync with the music, but fortunately her role in the show was minimal. I laughed reading the other poster's comments about Jeremy Gelbwaks leaving, cause I remember those silly rumors myself, such as that he'd died (even at the hands of David Cassidy!). The truth is much more mundane: his dad got a job transfer with his employer from Los Angeles to Virginia right after the end of the first season. Jeremy's alive and well, making a living as a systems programmer in New Orleans (and has been pitching in to clean up that unfortunate city after Hurricane Katrina struck). The latest I've heard on Dave Madden is that he's still around, too. He continued comic work on the nightclub circuit after the Partridge Family was canceled, and was especially in demand for voice-overs in commercials.
