40 Beautiful Photos of the Brother-and-Sister Pop Duo Donny and Marie Osmond in the 1970s

Donny & Marie is an American variety show that aired on ABC from January 1976 to January 1979. The show starred brother-and-sister pop duo Donny and Marie Osmond.


Donny had first become popular singing in a music group with his brothers, The Osmonds, and Marie was one of the youngest singers to reach No. 1 on the Billboard country music charts (with “Paper Roses” in 1973).

The siblings were offered a weekly show by ABC-TV President Fred Silverman after he saw the duo co-host a week on The Mike Douglas Show which followed their series of popular remakes of oldies, such as “I'm Leaving It All Up to You”, “Morning Side of the Mountain” and “Make the World Go Away”.

Donny and Marie (18 and 16 years old, respectively, when the program premiered) were the youngest entertainers in TV history to host their own variety show.

  1. I was a child of the '70s. Hard to believe now with all the bedazzled ladies showing off their hoo-has and ta-tas all over the place (see this year's Super Bowl, yikes!), but these two and their show were so much fun. Honest-to-goodness family entertainment. Great memories.
