'''''The Brady Kids''''' was the AnimatedAdaptation of ''TheBradyBunch'', produced by {{Filmation}} and originally airing from 1972 to 1974 on Creator/{{ABC}}. Most of the plot was about their misadventures and their songs. They had instruments, too: Greg and Peter on guitars, Bobby on drums, Marcia on tambourine and Jan on keyboards. Added was Cindy (in front of Greg) on a smaller guitar. Alice and the parents were missing from the series, and Tiger had been replaced by Moptop, a different dog. They also had two pet pandas that spoke nothing but Chinese-sounding gibberish and a magical myna bird. They had a musical performance OnceAnEpisode, and encountered various different guest stars, from WonderWoman (in her first animated appearance) to TheLoneRanger.

!!Tropes used by the show:

* AnimatedAdaptation
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Ping and Pong, the two pandas. It's all gibberish meant to sound Chinese.
* BandToon
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Fleetwood, an added character
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: The WonderWoman episode almost seems to be setting this up with Jan, who insists brain power is superior to physical strength. But the end of the episode has both her ''and'' Marcia learning that "the ultimate equation is a healthy body plus a healthy mind".
* CowboyEpisode: ''TheBradyKids'' had two: "Long Gone Silver" (guest-starring TheLoneRanger) and "Give Me a Home Where the Panda Bears Roam and the Dog and the Mynah Bird Play".
* FeatherFingers: Marlon the myna bird uses them.
* FreeRangeChildren
* GratuitousAnimalSidekick / TeamPet: Moptop, along with two pandas.
* HeliCritter: Marlon would fly by spinning his tail feathers like a rotor.
* {{Jerkass}}: Chuck White, an added character.
* LimitedAnimation / LazyArtist: And how. The animation of the kids walking and performing songs were exact duplicate motions from Filmation's Archie series of four years earlier.
* MagicSkirt: An episode featuring a scene of the kids ice skating on a pond had Cindy twirling around on one foot, but her skirt never twirls up. Likewise when she falls on her keister, her skirt does not flip up.
* {{Meganekko}}: Jan
* PandaingToTheAudience: Two pandas are their {{team pet}}s.
* [[RobeAndWizardHat Wizard Hat]]: Marlon
* TheSeventies: Very evident.
* ShoutOut: In ''A Very Brady Sequel'', when Roy Martin / Trevor Thomas experiences his spaghetti-induced MushroomSamba, he sees Marlon, Ping, Pong, and the {{Filmation}} versions of the kids.
* SidekickExMachina: Whenever the Brady kids were in a jam, Marlon could always help them.
* SpecialGuest: Special mention goes to the kids meeting WonderWoman in her first animated adaptation.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Mike, Carol, Alice and the house are no where to be seen.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Great pains were taken to ''never'' say the name of the town the Brady Kids lived in. In one episode, Greg deliberately ''turned off the TV news'' one word before the announcer said the name of the town.
