Barbara Cowsill And Part Of Her Family

Someone at NBC made the decision to give The Cowsills their own special and also decided that A FAMILY THING should be only a half-hour. He should be congratulated. This is a packed 30-minutes, leaving one with a good feeling, unlike many of the hour specials that wear quite thin around the 45-minute mark. The Beverly Hillbillies' Buddy Ebsen hosts the show and does a little song-and-dance routine of his own. The setting is the home of the Cowsills with Mother Barbara and father-founder Bud being introduced along with their six singing offspring. A highlight is Buddy's number, done with 9-year-old Susan to,"That Old Soft Shoe.'' There is one missing Cowsill, 20-year-old Dick, serving in the Army.
