Danny Bonaduce becomes a breakout star
22 February 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

With "See Here, Private Partridge" (a pun on the 1944 title "See Here, Private Hargrove"), it's interesting that between David Cassidy and Danny Bonaduce, it would be Danny getting a showcase episode first, resulting in his sudden breakout stardom, as well as one of the series' funniest outings. As The Partridge Family enter the studio to record their first album, Danny finds all of his ideas on salesmanship rejected by one and all, then receives a letter from the United States Army instructing him to report for basic training! (Reuben: "how are you at peeling potatoes?"). All of Shirley's efforts to convince personnel (watch for Jack Riley) that Danny is just a little boy fall on deaf ears ("to a mother, they're ALL just little boys!"). What the army wants, the army gets, and were it not for his height, Danny apparently would have made it! The album gets finished in time, with the featured song an early recording before David Cassidy, featuring Shirley's harmonizing- "I'm on the Road" (present on the debut LP issued in Nov 1970, THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY ALBUM, which charted at number 4), composed by the famed team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, who had written "Shades of Gray" and "Love is Only Sleeping" for The Monkees.
