When David Cassidy announced that he was leaving the show due to exhaustion, the producers came up with two different ideas to replace him. One was to have Rick Springfield take over the role, and another was to have Wesley Eure introduced as a next door neighbor who sang and replaced Keith in the group. See more »
The Partridge Family was a well-known enough group to obtain a booking at King's Island amusement park across the country from the California home, but not wealthy enough to travel in a chauffeured coach or even by air to most of their other gigs.
Either they are a minor local group or they are nationally known; the two cannot both hold true. See more »
The voices and music of the Partridge Family were augmented by other performers. See more »
The first season episodes originally featured the theme song's initial version titled "When We're Singin'". Subsequently, on cable reruns, the rewritten version that first appeared on the 2nd season, "C'mon Get Happy" is used for the whole series. See more »
Recently I've had the pleasure of watching re-runs of this quite pleasant television show. While it never dealt in-depth with earth shattering issues, it was well performed, well crafted & had some great songs that showcased the era. Some may find it sappy & over indulgent, but take it for what it was, a light comedy for teenage viewers. Also the show did pick up three 'Golden Globe' nominations, so some in the industry must have been of the same opinion!
