Hey, gang! Forgot about the most important date of all!

The Hanna-Barbera-produced Partridge Family 2200 A.D., which saw the family propelled into the future, debuted on the CBS Saturday morning schedule @ 9:30 AM (EDT), a full week after its live-action ABC prime time predecessor gave up the ghost. Originally slated to be a part of a proposed new version of The Jetsons (ABC, 1962-63), the animated version featured new characters Veenie (Keith's Venusian friend) and Marion (Laurie's Martian friend). Danny had a pet robot dog named Orbit. (Shirley Jones and David Cassidy did not voice their animated counterparts, and so were replaced by Joan Gerber and Chuck McClendan, respectively.)

16 half-hour intallments were produced for the animated series, which lasted for half a season on CBS Saturday morning (September 7, 1974 - March 8, 1975). In 1977, on the syndicated Fred Flintstone and Friends, it was retitled The Partridge Family in Outer Space; in October 2005, 2 restored episodes of PF 2200 A.D., #77-1: "My Son, The Spaceball Star" (11/30/74) and #77-14: "Car Trouble" (12/7/74), were included as bonuses on The Partridge Family: The Complete First Season DVD set.



Partridge Family 2200 A.D. was one of 7 new Hanna-Barbera series to premiere on the same day in the 1974-75 season for Saturday Morning. Others were one other CBS entry: Valley Of The Dinosaurs (which followed PF 2200 A.D.), one NBC entry: Wheelie And The Chopper Bunch, and 4---count 'em, 4!---ABC entries: Hong Kong Phooey; Devlin (which aired opposite VOTD); Korg, 70,000 B.C.; and These are the Days.

Say, that reminds me; it's time that final line on this page: "It has never been released on VHS or DVD", was changed. 'Cause as I stated, @ least 2 episodes of the show have been released on DVD. Smile

Weird that PF2200AD should be axed on Monkee Micky Dolenz's 30th birthday! :shock:

And he was a featured voice performer on the show, too! Go figure... Rolling Eyes
