Trivia / Brady Bunch Spin Offs

The Brady Bunch Hour

  • The Other Darrin: Eve Plumb, the original Jan Brady, was unable to make a commitment to the show, and was replaced by Geri Reischl.

The Brady Brides

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The only Brady spin-off that has never received a legal DVD release.
  • Old Shame: The intro has Mike's face blurred because Robert Reed didn't enjoy this show.

A Very Brady Christmas

The Bradys

  • Follow the Leader: Many reviewers felt that the creators were trying to create a 1990s Eight Is Enough. Others thought it was trying to capitalize on the success of thirtysomething, leading it to be nicknamed Bradysomething by the press.
  • The Other Darrin: Fake Marcia. Even in the opening credits, which pays homage to the classic square intro from the parent series; the young Maureen McCormick is replaced by a very obvious stand-in.
  • Screwed by the Network: The first episode was a two-hour, and gained a significantly larger audience in the second hour, winning the time slot. CBS decided to go keep the earlier start time.
