Storyline

Architect Mike Brady marries beautiful young Carol, who has three girls to care for. Likewise, Mike's previous wife's death has left him to raise his three boys all alone. In no time this amalgam becomes the ideal average American middle class family. Of course, raising such a large family isn't easy, so live-in housekeeper Alice Nelson is always there to lend a hand.

Trivia

Robert Reed refused to be in the pie throwing segment of The Brady Bunch: Welcome Aboard (1974), for there was no speaking dialogues. He called it "dumb" as if it were still silent movies of Keystone Cops' era. See more »

Goofs

First episode when Greg wants to have his own room, The Brady Bunch: Our Son, the Man Carol suggested the attic. Mike laughed, saying that it would work if Greg was only two feet tall, obviously pointing out that the head room is way too short. Later on, starting with The Brady Bunch: A Room at the Top, the attic is shown with more than enough room for someone to move around in. See more »

I'm in love with it!
1 June 2004 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

I love this series! I don't really care that it's hopelessly unrealistic, at least the whole family can watch it and you don't have to be concerned that something's going to crop-up on it that's unfit for your kids to see. Not one swear word, nothing! This was a family that was perfect, where no one ever stayed angry with one another, the parents loved each other and the kids and the kids loved and respected the parents! And of course there was the perfect Maid!

I laugh when people put this down for being "unrealistic." What about ever-popular shows like "The Andy Griffith Show"? Was THAT realistic?!

I love everything about the glory that was the Brady Bunch: the silly situations, the colorful clothes, everything! I wish they made stuff like this now! I watch the reruns whenever I can, and I've bought two of the books about it, too!

I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN A BRADY BOY!!!
