Confused I Didn't Realize That The Partridge Family Had Their Own Version Of "Cousin Oliver?!"

Ricky Segall.

If you blinked during the Partridge Family's run in the 1970's you may have missed him, but child actor Ricky Segall appeared in 10 episodes of the series back in 1973. He played the role of next door neighbor Ricky, a child singer who the Partridge's took under their wing (most likely in an attempt to up the show's "cute" factor, as the youngest Partridge kids were getting a little long in the tooth).

Cool

Ricky Segall was cast at the beginning of the 4th and final season as Ricky Stevens a neighbor boy who would drop by to sing with or for the Partridges. I think even the producers realized that he was an unnecessary character as his appearances were reduced and he was hardly ever seen (if at all) in the second half of the season.

Oh, yeah I remember little Ricky. He was grating to me even when I was a kid. It was so obvious they were trying to introduce a younger kid to address the aging of the youngsters, as you mentioned.

I think of the two, I might actually prefer Cousin Oliver!

Ricky's main function on the show was to sing a cute little song to cheer one of the Partridges up while the rest of the family sat around with goofy grins on their faces.

Me too. I fastforward through his parts when I watch the DVDs.

He really drags down Season 4, which rebounds once he is gone!

We've just begun the Ricky Segall era on Antenna TV I'm sad to report. It is nice seeing Season Four though as I have not purchased it on dvd. The show was clearly dragging by Season Four as is apparent by the addition of Ricky.

Yes, The Partridge Family did have its Cousin Oliver.
He has always gotten on my nerves to. He is not a very good singer. I was happy they took him out. I always fast forward over his part every time I watch an episode with him in it.

The worst Ricky Segall episode was the Beethoven one where the high-brow girlfriend sits there with a big grin on her face listening to Ricky sing his worst song ever, very incongruous. I just stop the DVD when he arrives since it was at the end of an episode after the plot had resolved.
