From 8-Tracks To i-Tunes: Your Favorite 70s Child Stars, Then and Now

Ah, the ’70s. The hair was long, the carpet was shaggy, and the lingo was “groovy.” Back in the days before DVR and Netflix, watching television was more of a family affair. Every family had their favorite, whether it was “The Brady Bunch,” “Happy Days,” “Good Times,” or “What’s Happening”. Those familiar with these ’70s shows know just about all the episodes by heart, as well as all of the child stars involved.

Nowadays, some of these stars are virtually unrecognizable. Who do you remember? Let’s check out what these actors did back then, and what they are up to now.

David Cassidy – Then


David played Keith Partridge on the hit show “The Partridge Family.” His character Keith was the family band’s lead singer. The fact is, David was hired based solely on his good looks. The producers of the show didn’t even care if he could sing or not!

The casting worked out and the show launched Cassidy to teen stardom. The show, sadly, took its toll on Cassidy, who looked to disrupt his good boy image with bad-boy antics, including appearing nude on the cover of Rolling Stone.
