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. Add to the mix the girls' cat Fluffy, the boys' dog Tiger, and Mike's longtime housekeeper Alice, and the collective new Brady... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Sherwood Schwartz's daughter Hope Juber (credited as Hope Sherwood) made four guest appearances on the series. First, The Brady Bunch: The Slumber Caper (1970), as a school classmate of Marcia Brady, named Jenny. Second, The Brady Bunch: The Big Bet (1972), as Greg Brady's date, Rachel. Third, The Brady Bunch: Greg Gets Grounded (1973) as Greg Brady's date, Rachel, again and the series' finale The Brady Bunch: The Hair-Brained Scheme (1974) as Gretchen, a graduate-to-be along with Greg. In addition, some of the show's storylines were based on her real-life experiences growing up. She admitted later it was slightly embarrassing to see events from her life played out on television.

Goofs

The exterior of the house does not match the interior. As you face the front door, the exterior has the second floor only to the left, but walking in the front door, the staircase is to the right. See more »

Hey, it may be corny, but at least your kids can watch it!
21 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Ok, so it may be predictable and corny. However it is one of the few things that come into our home via that cable in the wall that my wife and I can let our young son watch without worry. He thinks the Bradys are "new" and laughs at every episode. By the way, if you don't like it, don't watch it. That's what remote controls are for.
