Partridge Family 2200 A.D. is an animated television series based on The Partridge Family and created by Hanna-Barbera for CBS.

Production

This series started out as Hanna-Barbera's updated version of The Jetsons, where Elroy was now a teenager, and Judy now had a steady job as an ace reporter. But CBS discarded the idea, deciding to make an animated series of The Partridge Family instead, which saw the family propelled into the future. The series featured two 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. In fact, during a February 2, 2008, New York radio interview with Mark Simone on WABC's Saturday Night Oldies show, Jones had no recollection of any animated version of the series ever being produced. Susan Dey provided Laurie's voice for only two episodes and was replaced by former Mouseketeer Sherry Alberoni.

Sixteen half-hour episodes were produced for Partridge Family 2200 A.D., which lasted half a season on CBS Saturday morning (September 7, 1974–March 8, 1975); in 1977, it was re-titled The Partridge Family in Outer Space when episodes were rerun on the syndicated weekday series Fred Flintstone and Friends. Like most 1970s Saturday morning cartoons created by Hanna Barbera, Partridge Family 2200 A.D. contained an abridged, inferior laugh track.

In October 2005, two restored episodes of Partridge Family 2200 A.D., "My Son, The Spaceball Star" and "Car Trouble", were included as bonuses on The Partridge Family: The Complete First Season DVD set.

Due to its ties to The Partridge Family, Partridge Family 2200 A.D. is one of only two Hanna-Barbera produced series since H-B's 1967 sale to Taft Broadcasting that are owned outright by Sony Pictures Television, whose predecessor, Screen Gems, produced the live-action show; Jeannie, an animated spinoff of I Dream of Jeannie, is the other (the copyrights to both animated series are currently held by SPT subdivision Adelaide Productions).
