Trivia:
Based on the initial success of the series, the Osmond family constructed a multi-million dollar TV studio facility in their hometown of Provo, Utah, and moved production of the series there for its final season. The move (along with changes to the show's format) proved unsuccessful and the series was soon cancelled.See more »

Purple Socks and Sparkling Teeth, 14 December 2000
Author: hillari from Chicago, USA

Donny and Marie Osmond were the first brother and sister to host a variety show. Critics picked on the duo the whole time they were on the air. It wasn't great art, but it was fun, wholesome entertainment for an hour on Friday nights. Donny and Marie, like all variety shows, was expensive to put on every week, and that, along with changing tastes, eventually drove the show off the airwaves. Sometimes Nick-At-Nite will show reruns of it.
