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

The family dog "Tiger" was killed by a car in season one of the show before the filming of episode five was completed. A replacement dog proved to be unworkable. Tiger's doghouse remained on the set, though, because one of the studio lights fell and burned a hole through the astroturf, and the doghouse was used to hide the burned spot. See more »

Goofs

The series never shows Alice having her own bathroom. The house clearly must have at least 3 full baths for the nine people who live there as it would be very difficult for Alice to use the children's upstairs bathroom and very unlikely that Brady parent would allow her to use their master bedroom one. However, in the five year run of the program, Alice's bathroom is never shown although her rather tiny maid's quarters are several times. See more »

Love it
20 December 2000 | by Monika-5See all my reviews

Yes, the Bradys are corny, cheesy, tacky, etc. I LOVE them! I always liked Cindy the most out of all of them for some reason. The first few seasons were the best, but the show took a huge dive once Cousin Oliver showed up (he looked exactly like a pint-sized clone of John Denver). My favourite episodes are the Pilgrim episode, the one where Marcia gets hit in the nose with the football ("something suddenly came up"), and where Greg gets a used car. Where would pop culture be without the Bradys?
