Hi, I'm sorta new to the Partridge Family still, having only watched the first one and a half seaons. In the Season 2 episode Guess Who's Coming To Drive Reuben rings the PF house from jail and gets Tracey and she hangs up on him and he says to someone "she's only 5" but being season 2 and Suzanne herself being born in 1963 she would have been 7 or 8 years old in Season 2 of the PF. She doesn't have baby teeth or anything and doesn't look 5 to me yet her character can't sign her name on their itinerary (she has to leave handprints), doesn't seem to know how to write etc. So what age is she meant to be in the show? It doesn't make sense for her to be only 5 as that would make her 4 in Season 1 and she's clearly not and would they really take a child that young on tour? Or is Reuben so out of it that he was only exaggerating when he said "she's only 5"??

Suzanne's an actress. She may have been seven or eight, but she was PLAYING five.

I seem to recall that Tracey was 6 in the first season. Wasn't that on the liner notes on the back of "Family Album"?

No. The back of The Partridge Family Album states Tracy is four years old.

However, ABC Press Relations sent out information when the show premiered that states Tracy is 5. The "official" breakdown -- according to ABC/Screen Gems' press packet is as follows:

Keith -- 16
Laurie -- 15
Danny -- 10
Chris -- 7
Tracy -- 5

Suzanne was born in 1963, making her 7 when the series premiered (Six when the pilot was shot). But, if Tracy was four in Season One, it's safe to assume she was 5 in Season Two. Unless you go by ABC/Screen gems, in which case she was 5 in Season One and 6 in Season Two -- which means that script was incorrect. But, we've already established that there are several inconsistencies throughout the series. Very Happy

Well, she had a party in the "Max Ledbetter" episode. But, Shirley had two birthdays in the show ("I Can Get It For You Retail" and "Pin It On Danny.") Reuben also had a party in the fourth season episode, "Reuben Kincaid Lives." Very Happy

Yeah I know I just find it weird them calling her 5 when she doesn't have baby teeth or anything. My first impression was that she and Chris were twins or one year apart.

Suzanne has baby teeth in the pilot (shot in 1969) and a few still in the first season (although she had a lot of missing teeth then too.
