As in the original TV show, the band comprises widowed mother Shirley on lead vocals (voiced by Joan Gerber), and her children Keith (Chuck McClendon) on guitar and vocals, Laurie (Susan Dey, initially) on vocals and keyboards, Danny (Danny Bonaduce) on bass, Tracy (Suzanne Crough) on tambourine and Chris (Brian Forster) on drums.

Danny Bonaduce, Suzanne Crough and Brian Forster voiced their respective characters from the live-action series. Susan Dey provided Laurie’s voice for only two episodes before she was replaced by former Mouseketeer Sherry Alberoni.

Reuben Kincaid (John Stephenson) is their manager, Danny has a robotic dog named Orbit (Frank Welker), and Keith and Laurie have two good friends that travel with the family: Marion (Julie McWhirter), a two-toned green and blue Martian who can fly, and Veenie (Frank Welker again), a purple-haired Venusian with a distinct buzzing vocal tic.

Micky Dolenz, a member of a previous made-for-television band (The Monkees), had various recurring roles in the series, one of his first voice-over roles.

16 half-hour episodes were broadcast on CBS on Saturday mornings between 7 September 1974 and 8 March 1975.
