12 ‘Brady Bunch’ Behind-the-Scenes Facts You Probably Never Knew

Don't miss an inside look at the infamous 'Oh, my nose!' episode

The Brady Bunch was a beloved, classic television sitcom that premiered on ABC on September 26, 1969 and ran until March 8, 1974. The show was created by Sherwood Schwartz and followed a blended family of six. Mike Brady (played by Robert Reed), a widowed architect with three sons — Greg Brady (played by Barry Williams), Peter Brady (played by Christopher Knight) and Bobby Brady (played by Mike Lookinland) — marries Carol Martin (Florence Henderson), who herself has three daughters: Marcia Brady (played by Maureen McCormick), Jan Brady (played by Eve Plumb) and Cindy Brady (played by Susan Olsen). Alas, the Brady Bunch household was formed.

Today, it’s still considered a beloved television classic by many thanks to its loveable and realistic family problems that everyone found themselves relating to. From their hectic family vacation to Hawaii or the countless sibling fights, there was something for everyone.
