Three Partridge Family Mini-Documentaries

“I Think I Love You” outsold the Beatles’ “Let it Be” and Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” in 1970 for a very good reason: it too was a great song.

The Partridge Family brought not only high-quality bubblegum music into American households in the early 70’s, but plenty of moral lessons (“You can’t expect to go through life having things given to you, you have to work for what you really want”, “We never quite outgrow making mistakes”, “Almost everything we know is learned by trial an error”, “Tracy, don’t put that drumstick up your nose!”)

Enjoy the stories of the hits, the misses (that kid who played Chris for one season) the bloopers, the singers behind the singers, and the family behind the family.
