Never a huge hit in its initial network run on Creator/{{ABC}}, ''The Brady Bunch'' found its audience once it [[VindicatedByReruns went to daily syndication]] in 1975, and went on to become a cultural touchstone (and an object of nostalgia and derision in equal measure) for Gen-Xers. Over the years the show spawned several spinoffs, two made-for-TV reunion movies and a couple of short-lived revival series. Moreover, the actors of the children have appeared in specials and {{game show}}s numerous times.

* DomesticApplianceDisaster: In the episode "Law and Disorder", Bobby makes a clandestine effort to launder his good suit (after he got it cover in soot from entering a condemned house). But he poured about half a box of detergent into the washing machine, and almost drowned himself when the laundry room filled with suds. To add insult to injury, the ordeal all but ruined his dry-clean-only suit pants, as they were now, in his sister's words, "tighter than his skin".

* OnlyBarelyRenewed: According to Ann B. Davis, only once was the series renewed for a full season(for the rest of the run, it was half-season renewals).



* ShootTheMoney: Episodes took the Bradys on location to Grand Canyon and Hawaii.



* YouLookFamiliar: Chris Beaumont, a teen actor of the late 1960s and early 1970s, plays four different characters always, opposite Barry Williams' Greg during the final four seasons. Chris first appeared in Season 2's "Our Son, the Man" as a high school senior Greg tries to emulate (none too well). In Season 3, he was slick-talking Eddie in "The Wheeler Dealer," who tries to sell him a wreck of a used car. Season 4's season finale was "A Room at the Top," where Chris' Hank is a college sophomore and one of Greg's buddies (no indication if he's the same kid that Greg encountered a couple of years earlier, but still ... ). But perhaps Chris' most prominent, best-received role was that as the unethical quarterback Jerry Rogers in "Quarterback Sneak."
