When I was a kid, I was a big fan of the original "Partridge Family". I honestly thought that their show was a more realistic portray of family life than "The Brady Bunch". When I heard that they were going to make the Partridges into an animated series, I thought that it was going to be great. Imagine my shock when I saw how bad it was. This was nothing like the original show and they even had the nerve to try to pass off Joan Gerber and Chuck McClendon off as reasonable substitutes for Shirley Jones and David Cassidy. This show was so bad that after a few episodes Susan Dey quit the show and they had to get Kathy Gori to assume the role of Laurie Partridge. Also, the characters of Marion the Martian and Vinnie the Venusian were nothing but annoyances. Also, the robot dog Orbit was a waste of ink and wasn't even funny. Thankfully, this show isn't shown in reruns anymore and I have an idea that Shirley Jones and David Cassidy are thanking their lucky stars that they didn't appear in this train wreck.
