The Brady Bunch (1969–1974)
Courtesy Everett Collection / Courtesy Everett Collection Robert Reed had an on-camera role on another network during "The Brady Bunch." In Season 5 episode "Mail Order Hero," featuring football legend Joe Namath, Marcia (Maureen McCormick) makes reference to a "far-out" guy named Mike Connors. At the time, TV dad Robert Reed also had a recurring role as Lt. Adam Tobias on CBS detective drama "Mannix," which starred Mike Connors. Groovy inside joke! This is also ironic because Mannix used the Brady house for scenes on alot of their interiors. So Reed was walking around the Brady house playing another part on another Tv show while the Brady Bunch was still on the air.
