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

Did You Know?


When Sherwood Schwartz pitched The Brady Bunch: The Honeymoon (1969) to NBC, they thought the story of the parents taking their blended family along on their honeymoon was an unbelievable story line. They offered to do the pilot if he changed the ending. ABC liked it so much, they wanted to stretch the story to be a television movie, ninety minutes long. Sherwood balked at that also, certain that such a pilot would be so dull, the series would not get picked up. See more »


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 »

User Reviews

I want to be adopted by the Brady's.
30 October 1998 | by rossifSee all my reviews

I always wanted to be a Brady. I could see myself flying down

that staircase in the morning to be handed my school lunch in a

brown paper bag by Florence Henderson. I thought the house

could manage 7 kids as easily as 6. That was my dream and my

aspiration. The thing was, I identified very strongly with

that show. I knew it was lame brained, even when I was the

same age as the youngest of the Brady kids. I also knew that

its heart was in the right place and it represented to me,

everything that I did not have. Of course, I was living in the

REAL world, and that is not always easy to take. Nearly 30

years later, I have fond feelings towards this series and

occasionally can be seen watching the inevitable reruns. Many

people feel the same as I do, I'm sure, so they must have done

something right.
