My Daughters Love the Brady Bunch

After cartoons are over on the public television channel an old classic comes on and my daughters start to cheer. It is the Brady Bunch and they love it. I don’t know if it’s Cindy’s curly blond hair, The cheesiness of it all, or the undeniably attractive orange counter tops in the kitchen, there is just some thing about that show they love.

I am usually starting to make dinner at this time so I don’t mind them watching it. I mean Brady bunch is pretty wholesome, right? The episode we watched last found the Brady bunch at an amusement park. Mr. Brady loses his blueprints he needed for a meeting some where in the park the kids later find them and do this relay race to get it back to him just in time. Your really glad I gave you a synopsis huh? I kept trying to convince my Husband that the amusement park they were at was Lagoon (an amusement park in Utah). It really did look just like it (Well a forever ago old school version.) A lot of the same rides and everything! Google was not on my side for this one and quickly proved me wrong.

I don’t know what was more hilarious me trying to convince my husband that the Brady bunch came to Utah, or Shout yelling out that this must be a new episode because she had never seen it before.

    My kids were watching the same Brady Bunch episode as I cooked dinner. Apparently we’re not the only ones :)

    So funny. We watch Brady Bunch on PBS too. Most are pretty good but I’ve switched the channel a few times due to old fashioned values -like not letting Marcia run for school president because she was a girl. They made several comments that made my daughter ask questions and I didn’t want her thinking that way because times have changed so much now. She also loves Little House on the Prairie – which I’ve had to turn off a few times too.

    I was always in love with Greg – until I learned what happened behind the scenes!

    my kids watch Brady Bunch religiously – I have to be careful not to serve dinner a few minutes early or else I’ll cut into their Brady time… and I CRACK up when they claim it’s a new episode :)

    the teenager and I hum the tune (fast or slow, depending on the mood of the day) just to make fun of it… he’s working on writing me my own theme song that I can adapt to all moods.
