** ''The Underground Movie'': Super8 movie cameras were the "in" thing in 1970, and the fact that this is a camera that also records sound made it even cooler. Of course, 8-mm films and the projectors used to play the films have long since bit the dust, replaced by video cameras and eventually camera phones. Additionally, until the advent of today's iPads (including those with movie-making applications) being issued to students, movies and videos as school projects was relatively novel.

Added DiffLines:

* McLeaned: Averted twice for Robert Reed, both times due to cancellations.
** Had the original series been revived for a sixth season, Reed would have been fired due to his ongoing disputes with the Schwartzes. One of the scenarios they had on the drawing board was to kill off Mike before ABC cancelled the show.
** With ''The Bradys'', Reed's feud with the Schwartzes continued unabated, and when the Schwartzes got wind that a frustrated Reed was complaining directly to [=CBS=] about the scripts, Sherwood Schwartz and Paramount Studios considered that a serious breach of protocol. Barry Williams wrote in his autobiography that had the series been renewed for the fall 1990 season, Reed would definitely not have been asked back ... and again, killing his character off was among the scenarios that were on the table.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: While the series didn't have an example of this, it was still responsible for a RealLife example. Have you ever heard of Piyush Jindal? Probably not... but there's a much better chance you've heard of Bobby Jindal, a former U.S. Representative and two-term governor of Louisiana. The reason is that when he was growing up in Baton Rouge, he regularly watched ''Brady Bunch'' reruns and so strongly identified with Bobby that he started insisting on being called by that name.

Added DiffLines:

* ThrowItIn: While shooting Season 1, Chris Knight was heard singing the show's theme song. Schwartz took this idea and rearranged the theme to have the six Brady kids themselves sing it from Season 2 onward.
