*** The kids, with their singing talents, although in real life, only Barry Williams and Maureen [=McCormick=] had genuine singing talent.(Mike Lookinland and Susan Olsen also had decent voices, and Eve Plumb was OK, but Chris Knight was--by his own admission--a terrible singer.)

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Original plot lines/character changes for the first movie and as a "sign of the times" would have had Mike flipping burgers instead of his usual career of an architect and Marcia being a lesbian. Fortunately, a successful lawsuit put an end to these radical changes, though they were worked into the film's in other ways (Greg ended up being the BurgerFool in the sequel, though it's only shown in one scene and Marcia is given a lesbian friend who, of course, [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer is in love with her.]])

Added DiffLines:

* KilledByRequest: Robert Reed hated everything about the show except the kids playing the young Bradys. This led to him and producer Creator/SherwoodSchwartz butting heads on numerous occasions. And in fact, had it not been cancelled Schwartz actually planned to kill off Mike Brady over the summer hiatus so he'd be gone for the sixth season and beyond.
