Storyline

Long running variety show, featuring the brother-sister singing duo of Donny and Marie Osmond. The first season also featured all of the Osmond families, but Donny and Marie were obviously the most popular of the bunch so the rest were phased into occasional appearances.

Trivia

The genesis of this show can be traced back to Donny and Marie's appearance on the The Mike Douglas Show (1961). When Fred Silverman saw the way the two interacted with each other he decided at that point to develop the variety show with the two siblings. See more »

Even More Sugary Than the Bradys
30 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

When I wrote my comments on all the shows in the "Brady Bunch" franchise, I often said that they caused the diabetes rates to jump. Well, this is another show that definitely caused it to go up. This show had to be the most sickeningly sweet show and it was a worthy successor to that other family that was on Friday nights. However, whereas the Brady's were played by a bunch of actors, the Donnie and Marie were a real life brother and sister act. Also, they probably would have been the perfect spokespersons for Crest or Ultra Brite. This show was definitely a product of its time.
