Storyline

The marriage of architect Mike Brady and homemaker Carol Martin née Tyler will be the second for both. They have the issue of blending their two already large families, Mike who has three children and Carol who has three children. One additional issue is that the Brady household was testosterone laden with Mike's children being three boys - Greg, Peter and Bobby - and the Martin household was estrogen laden with Carol's children being three girls - Marcia, Jan and Cindy. The six children not only have their usual issues in growing from children to teenagers, and in this situation in getting used to a new parent and new siblings, but also interacting with new siblings whose mentality generally reflects their specific gender, which more often than not is totally foreign to them. Mike and Carol also have the new roles of parent to daughters and sons respectively.

Trivia

The theme song (written by show creator & producer, Sherwood Schwartz was performed by The Peppermint Trolley Company for the show's first season. The last four seasons, it was sang by the Brady kids, and re-recorded yearly. During the first season, a Brady Bunch writer, director, or producer, overheard and discovered Peter Brady, Christopher Knight rehearsing the theme song, alone and suggested them to sing it together. This led to all six siblings singing the show's introductory song for the last four seasons and 92 episodes. See more »

One of my favorite sitcoms in the 1970's!!!a cult classic!!
9 October 1999 | by (VACAVILLE,CA,USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite shows from the 1970's.You know the words, the people , the outragous situations! I love the Brady Bunch because I could often relate to the problems the brady bunch faced!I am the 8 of 11 children. So I could easliy relate to them . Of course the show was not without controveries. Most of the brady bunch actors have gone to other things!my favorite brady are florence hendersen (mom brady ) and barry williams. Of course I love all the brady bunch actors!!If you can relate to this show , you will love the videos and reruns!!BTW, this show is now reaching cult status!!Pretty cool for a OK family show from the 1970's!!It also was made into two big screen movies in the 1990's!!
