Widower Sheriff Andy Taylor, and his son Opie, live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry, North Carolina. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney Fife.
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
One actress that was offered the role of Carol Brady was Shirley Jones. However, she refused it because, as she put it, she refused to do a role where all she did was "take a pot roast out of the oven". Of course, a year after this show premiered, Jones would play another iconic mother in the character of Shirley Partridge on The Partridge Family (1970), which aired immediately after this show on Friday nights.

Mike Brady is shown to be an employee (not even a partner) in his architectural firm. That means unless he was paid substantial bonuses, his salary by 1970s standards would be far too low to support the costs of a live-in maid like Alice. This becomes even more apparent when the series makes it clear that Carol Brady does not work and thus Mike's income is the only thing supporting nine people, including himself. See more »

One of my favorite sitcoms in the 1970's!!!a cult classic!!
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!!
