Just dark humor, the way this thread has become ! I don't think the Brady boys are yucky at all ! I was thinking in terms of how 3 little girls would feel , esp.back in those days, little girls and boys thought of each other as yucky as having " cooties "! So Marcia, Jan & Cindy suddenly having to move in with 3 boys and suddenly become their Sisters , realistically they would see them as yucky boys rather than their Brothers !

I do not think that it was that kind of show to go that much in depth about this subject. Back in 1969, blended families were much, much less common and this was the first show to showcase it. It was a simpler time. Sitcoms were not as sophisticated as they are now.

50 years later things are very different now.

Perhaps the OP could shed some light on why he/she thinks that the BB was to be another type of show or that it somehow turned into a comedy while it was running??
Judging by the tone of most of his posts so far, MIKEPR just wants to be a troll and potentially start fights. And he is never willing to offer any helpful replies to discussions. I don't know why anyone with such an intent would join a forum like this.

LOL -- The Brady Bunch is an American sitcom created by Sherwood Schwartz that aired from September 26, 1969, to March 8, 1974, on ABC.

Wiki says it's a Situation COMEDY !

so there's that ...

Alice was so desperate for a man that she was willing to be taken in by that charlatan Mark Millard, and was hoping he’d propose after one date. SAD!

The problem is why would anyone asked such questions.

What's the logic?

I certainly see no reason to ask questions like that.

You know what, MIKEPR? No one here is sure if the things you've stated ever since you joined this forum are your true, genuine feelings or not, but I don't think you need to come here if literally the only things you want to post are something that begins with the words "I don't see..." or is among the lings of "I don't think this is a big deal". The problem with you is what I've already stated earlier.

Oh come now. Certainly you must think the conundrum over a female vs. a male pediatrician is the highest of high dramas.

Or Jan being allergic to Tiger but they thought it might be Mike. Nothing more serious or thought-provoking than that!

(LOL! Just some fun!!)

The show will be airing on the Hallmark Drama network soon, so the OP may have a valid point.

Not only did the show have deep dramatic moments, but it was also really scary: Alice breaking Mike's head, Greg having the goat from The VVitch in his room, Bobby being abducted by aliens, the boys meeting a creepy old man in a cave, Greg's hair turning orange.

Interesting that THIS Youtube says the show was presented to Robert Reed as " to be a realistic show"
