Widower Steve Douglas raises three sons with the help of his father-in-law, and is later aided by the boys' great-uncle. An adopted son, a stepdaughter, wives, and another generation of sons join the loving family in later seasons.
Suburban widow Shirley and her kids tour the country in a wildly painted bus performing music as a family. Their agent Reuben hates kids, so Danny gives him a bad time.Written by

The name of Shirley's late husband was never mentioned throughout the run of the series. 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 »
for kids, and wish there were more like this today.
Shirley Jones, David Cassidy, Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce are the primary characters; This show competed with the Brady Bunch when it first aired. It had the usual teen conflicts, Keith (David Cassidy) and his dating conquests. Danny and his latest scheme. The music was fun (so innocent- compared to what is offered up today!) Basically a good nostalgia show. The Reuben Kincaid interactions with Danny (Danny Bonaduce) are some of the best. Funny and cynical, Kincaid is the cranky old uncle, Bonaduce the trouble maker.
I don't know if this show is still available on cable regularly, but it is well worth watching. 9/10.
