Barry Williams reports that shooting began for the
pilot on his 14th birthday, which works out to
September 30, 1968. This episode may have led to
Dabbs Greer being typecast; in addition to playing
the officiant here (and marrying Bobby and Tracy in
"The Bradys"), he played the Rev. Alden on the
long-running "Little House on the Prairie" and now
plays a minister on "Picket Fences."

THE BRADY BUNCH VARIETY HOUR
28 November 1976
The Bradys reunited for this special which served as the
basis for a second Brady Bunch series. The family had abandoned
the middle class and now starred in a variety show. The special
and series were produced by Sid & Marty Krofft of "H.R. Pufnstuf"
and "Donny and Marie" fame without involvement of the producers
of the original series. The part of Jan was played by Geri
The special didn't have much of a plot, except a few scenes
based around how Mike couldn't act. One horrible scene involved
Peter lying to a girlfriend in order to dump her. Songs included
"Baby Face/Love To Love You Baby" (all); "One" (all); "Corner of
the Sky" (Williams); "What I Did For Love/The Way We Were"
(Henderson); an art song by Tony Randall; and a finale medley of
"Cheek to Cheek," "Dance with Me," "T.S.O.P.," "The Hustle,"
"Attitude Dancing," and "Shake Your Booty." (no lie!)
THE BRADY BUNCH HOUR
1. January 23, 1977
Farrah Fawcett and Lee Majors somehow wind up sleeping in
the Brady living room. The plot centered on getting them to
appear on the Brady show. Songs included "Yankee Doodle Dandy"
(all); "Razzle Dazzle" (the Hudson Brothers. YES, THE HUDSON
BROTHERS!); "Send in the Clowns" (Henderson, of course).
2. February 27, 1977
Bobby hires Milton Berle as the Bradys' resident comedian.
The rest of the family is put off by Berle's rather dated humor
and gags. "So you're giving me the pink slip," Berle concludes.
"We're giving you all the clothes back," deadpans Bobby. Tina
Turner was on hand to sing "Rubber Band Man." ("Private Dancer"
was still seven years away.) Chris Knight sang "Sing" with a
puppet. Henderson sang "Evergreen," and the show ended with a
medley of heart songs. (The organ, not the girl group.)
3. March 4, 1977
Greg decides to move out of the house. Regular irregular
Rip Taylor plays his rental agent. The apartment has a three-
legged couch ("Good for your posture," notes Taylor), which was
multi-function. "Where's the bedroom," asked Greg. "You're in
it," said Taylor. "And where's the bathroom?" "You're in it.
Oh the BATHROOM -- the bathroom is down the hall. And that's all
yours too. Along with a few other people." (I'm not kidding.
The writing was really this bad.) Greg decides to move back
Henderson and Williams sang a tandem, she singing "Traces"
and he singing Eric Carmen's "All By Myself." It was easily the
most poignant moment in this series. Maureen McCormick sang
"Time In A Bottle." The cast sang "Sunny Side Up," and "It's Not
Where You Start." The show ended with a medley of "Make Someone
Happy," "I Want To Be Happy," and "Happy Days."
