''The Brady Kids'' was the AnimatedAdaptation of ''Series/TheBradyBunch'', produced by Creator/{{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 Alice and the parents were missing from the series, and Tiger had been replaced by Moptop, a different dog.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 guest stars, from Franchise/WonderWoman (in her first animated appearance) to Franchise/TheLoneRanger.

[[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation ...yeah, it's all about like that.]]
!!Tropes used by the show:

* AnimatedAdaptation
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Ping and Pong, the two pandas. It's all gibberish meant to sound Chinese.
* BandToon
* CattleDrive: In "Give Me a Home Where the Panda Bears Roam and the Dog and the Mynah Bird Play", the kids go on a cattle drive. As usual, Marlon's magic makes a mess of things.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Fleetwood, an added character
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: The Franchise/WonderWoman episode almost seems to be setting this up with Jan, who insists that 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: ''The Brady Kids'' had two: "Long Gone Silver" (guest-starring Franchise/TheLoneRanger) and "Give Me a Home Where the Panda Bears Roam and the Dog and the Mynah Bird Play".
* FeatherFingers: Marlon the mynah bird uses them.
* FreeRangeChildren
* GratuitousAnimalSidekick[=/=]TeamPet: Moptop, Marlon, Ping, and Pong
* 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 butt, her skirt does not flip up.
* {{Meganekko}}: Jan
* MythologyGag: In "You Took the Words Right Out of My Tape", Cindy is looking at the Sabertooth Tiger in the wax museum and comments on how nice it would be to have a "tiger" as a pet.[[note]]Get it?[[/note]] Doubles as a StealthPun.
* PackedHero: In "Pop Goes the Mynah", Marlon is sealed in a can at a soda factory, and the Bradys have to rescue him.
* PandaingToTheAudience: Two pandas named Ping and Pong are the kids' {{team pet}}s.
* TheRustler: In "Give Me a Home Where the Panda Bears Roam and the Dog and the Mynah Bird Play," the kids discover that the cattle herd they are supposed to be taking on a CattleDrive consists of one cow. However, it is marked for rustling by two grizzled old-timers, Sagebrush and Tumbleweed.
* TheSeventies: Very evident.
* ShoutOut: In ''A Very Brady Sequel'', when Roy Martin aka Trevor Thomas experiences his spaghetti-induced MushroomSamba, he sees Marlon, Ping, Pong, and the Creator/{{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 Wonder Woman in her animation debut.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Mike, Carol, Alice and the house are nowhere to be seen.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Great pains were taken to ''never'' say the name of the town in which the Brady Kids lived. In one episode, Greg deliberately ''turned off the TV news'' one word before the announcer said the name of the town.
* [[RobeAndWizardHat Wizard Hat]]: Marlon wears one
