Shirley Partridge had a job as a bank teller before she fronted with her son for the Partridge Family, making her one of TV's first working moms. She wasn't the first, though, Lucy also had a job as a secretary at a Bank on The Lucy Show;(1962) also a show about a working mother. Maureen Robinson (June Lockhart) was a doctor on Lost in Space (1965); that means she was a working mother as well. 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 »
... Look, you don't want to be a mother to a bunch of illiterate bums, do you?
He's right, Mom. Do you want Chris to pump gas all his life, and Tracy to wait on tables in some sleazy strip joint, while I work as a garbage collector... just because you were chicken?

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!
