Update: THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON now available in a Three-Disc DVD Set, with a Special "Jump to" Musical Performances Feature

Culver City, CA - Hit the road with television's grooviest family with THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON now on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Available for $29.95 SLP, the three-disc set features all 24 second season episodes and a special "jump to" musical performances feature.

In September of 1970, The Partridge Family burst onto American television screens in their bell-bottomed pants and matching polyester outfits and cemented their place in pop culture. Loosely based on the career of the real-life family group The Cowsills, The Partridge Family centers on a fatherless family of six who decide to form a rock band and tour the country in their psychedelic-painted school bus. The band's members include mom Shirley (Shirley Jones) and her five kids: oldest son Keith (teen idol David Cassidy), keyboardist Laurie (Susan Dey), bassist and get-rich quick schemer Danny (Danny Bonaduce) and the two youngest Partridges, Chris (Brian Forster) and Tracy (Suzanne Crough). The family's frequently exasperated manager Reuben Kincaid (David Madden) rounds out the cast.

The Partridge Family's success crossed over to the pop charts when several Partridge Family songs became genuine hits, including the theme "C'mon, Get Happy," which debuted during this second season, and the number one hit "I Think I Love You." The Partridge Family ran for four seasons on ABC and was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards®, including one for Best Comedy.

In the show's second season, Danny worries about losing his singing voice after he's diagnosed with tonsillitis, director Rob Reiner guest stars as a motorcycle hippie named Snake, and Meredith Baxter ("Family Ties") plays a free-spirited millionaire. Other notable second season guest stars include Gordon Jump ("WKRP in Cincinnati"), Norman Fell ("Three's Company") and famed sports announcer Howard Cosell.
