People want that kind of make-believe. They want entertainment. People love the music in it, they still love to hear those songs. The adults of today grew up on that kind of bubblegum music.

R
The musicals had a good, happy feeling, saying that the world is a better place. They say it's not reality, but who cares? There's too much reality these days.
A
It was a wonderful time [making "The Partridge Family"] and I loved every minute of it. We had a great executive producer who was in tune with all of us . . . We had an incredible rapport and I think that's what made us successful.
N
We can't negate television. Unfortunately, I do feel in many ways that it did kill my movie career. It did do that. But would I not do it again? Do I have any regrets about doing it? No.
K
Well, television is what it is. Let's face it. I had done 25 motion pictures prior to The Partridge Family and nobody knew my name.
