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
Robert Reed was written out of the show's final episode, The Brady Bunch: The Hair-Brained Scheme (1974), after an argument with producer Sherwood Schwartz over what Reed considered a ridiculous story line (with Greg's hair turning orange from hair tonic), but he remained on-set for its filming. Studio security offered to remove Reed, but Schwartz declined to have this done in front of the kids. See more »
Considering that Brady's have six children, including two already in adolescence when the series begins and Mike is an architect, no reason is given why they didn't purchase a much larger home. After all, they are apparently wealthy enough to employ a live-in maid, take expensive vacations and not to have Carol work.
The series attempts to tackle this later with Greg getting an attic room of his own. However, why this wasn't done in the first place is never explained; nor is why they don't on an addition or even consider a larger dwelling as time went by. See more »
I'd like to buy a wig please.
Not for yourself. Why would you want to cover such beautiful blonde hair?
You'd understand if you had two blonde sisters at home.
Oh, so we want a complete change do we?
Ok. What kind of style are you looking for?
I don't know. Something wild. Kooky. Kinda like something you're wearing.
This is my own hair.
Oh! I'm so sorry!
Not half as sorry as I am.

Hey, it may be corny, but at least your kids can watch it!
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.
