Throwback Thursday- Groovy Television- The Partridge Family (1970-1974) & The Monkees (1966-1968)

In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, television began to reflect the very colorful world that America was becoming.

Two very iconic television shows of the era, The Partridge Family (1970-1974) and The Monkees (1966-1968), reflect what it was  to be a part of the era.

The Partridge Family

Shirley Partridge (Shirley Jones) is a single mother of five growing children. Her children, led by eldest son Keith (David Cassidy, Shirley Jones’s IRL stepson) convince their mother to form a band and go on the road. Managed by Reuben Kincaid (Dave Madden), this family band can only live the life that was possible in the early 1970’s.

And course, there is the iconic song from the show.

Then there is the Monkees, television’s answer to the Beatles.

Davy (Davy Jones), Micky (Micky Dolenz),  Mike (Michael Nesmith) and Peter (Peter Tork) are the members of The Monkees, a rock and roll band that has a series of wacky adventures.

 

Do I recommend them? They’re harmless, so yes.
