* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The show screams "early [[TheSeventies '70s]]" harder than just about any other product of its era.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Schwartz originally wanted Gene Hackman to play Mike but the network turned him down because he was too familiar.

*** 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.)

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Now that TheNineties are as far in the past as TheSeventies were when the movies were made.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* EditedForSyndication: Some "family friendly" networks remove the MushroomSamba, cutting directly to disheveled Roy waking up the next day, late for the auction.
* FollowTheLeader: Although the ''Dragnet'' movie did it first, it was the success of this film that inspired other big screen remakes to lampoon their source material rather than play it straight. Films such as ''Starsky & Hutch'', ''I Spy'', ''The Green Hornet'', and ''21 Jump Street'', to name a few.


Added DiffLines:

* MissingTrailerScene: The trailer for the first movie showed Peter delivering his Creator/HumphreyBogart impression ("Porkshops and appleschause") to one of the girls at school. The original trailer for the second movie featured two gags involving the Brady Bunch grid: one in which the clan [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] to exclaim, "We're back!", and one in which Trevor walks into Mike's square.

* 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."
