I've just been wondering about production dates for GAB, and if they were broadcast in the order they were filmed.
I'm curious how you compiled this list.

Default how i did it

A lot of research.

I looked up old script pages, library collections, publicity photographs, and even old newspaper articles to compile the taping dates.

While we are on the topic of episodes that aired on peoples' birthday, I would like to mention an episode of "The Brady Bunch" that aired on the day that I turned one year old! It was from the first season and was titled "To Move or Not to Move". Just wanted to share!

Awesome, I was born on August 16, 1982, 3 days after "Grandpa's Visit" filmed and 4 days before "Nell Goes To Jail"/ ""Brother Ed And The Hooker" filmed.


On August 16, 1983, Joey Pt 1 filmed, and that was on my 1st birthday!

While we are on the topic of things that happened on our 1st birthdays, the "Brady Bunch" episode "To Move or Not to Move" was broadcast on my first birthday!
