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.
