The Patty Duke Show

Show Summary

Number Eight Remsen Drive, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, New York, the residence of the Lane family: Martin, the managing editor of the New York Chronicle; his wife, Natalie; their daughter, Patty, a perky, bubble gum chewing teenager who dug Paul Anka records and slumber parties; their son Ross; and their glamorous, intellectual Scottish cousin, Cathy Lane, who is residing with them until she completes her high school education and is able to rejoin her father, Kenneth Lane, a foreign correspondent for the Chronicle.

Stories depict the lives of two pretty high school girls, sixteen-year-old identical cousins: Patty, the average American girl, possesses an unquenchable thirst for life and the ability to complicate matters that are seemingly uncomplicatable; and Cathy, shy, warm, and sensitive, possosses a love for the arts, and, treasuring her European unbringing, sometimes encounters difficulty as she tries to adjust to the American way of life.

The girls confused everybody in their middle-class neighborhood by mischievously switching personalities at critical moments. Richard was Patty's boyfriend, a part-time Western Union messenger. Mrs. MacDonald was the family housekeeper.

In this show's final season, it was followed by another popular teen-com, Gidget. The Patty Duke Show's run on Nick at Nite was from September 1988 to August 1993. First Telecast:September 18,1963
