Recap / The Brady Bunch S 3 E 14 The Teeter Totter Caper

Go To

Bobby and Cindy set out to set the world record for teeter-tottering.

Tropes present in this episode:

  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Bobby and Cindy – already offended that they weren't invited to Aunt Gertrude's wedding – to their older brothers and sisters, when they were asked to go away while they did various projects. Mike backs up the older kids and suggests they find something to do and get over their disappointments.

  • Ugly Cute: In-universe. The remarks several of the Bradys have for Aunt Gertrude, including hints that she has lots of facial hair.
  • Worst News Judgement Ever: The community daily newspaper's attempt at "hyper local" news, giving banner headlines and large front-page photos to Bobby and Cindy's attempt to set a world's teeter-tottering record for kids ... a record which, by the way, the editor and/or reporter had no way of knowing they would follow through with. Also, the stereotypical reporter putting words in everyone's mouths.

How well does it match the trope?
