The Patti Partridge doll was first introduced on the second season opener, "Dora, Dora, Dora". Tracy was shielding the doll's ears with her fingers to block out Dora's off-key warbling. The doll, although seen occasionally on several episodes before, was never seen again. According to Suzanne Crough, she kept the doll in her own personal collection. See more »
The interior of the Partridge home was shot on a set. But, in episodes where there are shots from the exterior of the Partridge home through the open front door, there is a wall seen a few feet beyond the door. However, in the scenes from the interior of the home, there is no wall in that spot. See more »

A fun series. I liked the Partridges and always wanted to ride on that cool bus of theirs! I also enjoyed the musical numbers (even though David Cassidy and Shirley Jones were the only cast members to actually so the singing).
The *real* find of The Partridge Family? Forget David Cassidy and Susan Dey, it was Danny Bonaduce! His dry wit and deadpan delivery were right on, especially for someone as young as he was at the time. During a recent trip to California, I randomly bumped into Mr. Bonaduce at the Universal City Walk in North Hollywood. I was so excited, and he was kind enough to sign an autograph and pose for a picture! Danny, if you're reading this, thanks again!
One of the coolest sitcoms from the 1970s, I don't care what anyone else says!
