Widower Sheriff Andy and his son Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry NC. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney.
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
In the episode "Where There's Smoke" Tommy reassures Greg by saying "Hey! They're just regular cigarettes man!" when he imploringly hands him the open cigarette carton. The implication when Tommy says "just regular cigarettes" is that they're not marijuana cigarettes! This is ironic because Barry Williams admitted in his autobiography "Growing Up Brady" that he was, in fact, stoned from marijuana in one episode. 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 »
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?
