According to Susan Olsen in the book "Love to Love You Brady's" Bob Reed had a ball making the Variety Hour. However on the original sitcom Bob was usually grumpy since he was often butting heads with producer Sherwood Schwartz.

Yeah, it seems like Flo and Bob were the only Bradys who really enjoyed the entire experience, while Ann B. Davis and most of the kids (with the exception of Geri Reischl) name is as their least favorite Brady show.

Kind of? This show was dripping with cheese! But in my opinion that's part of it's charm!

The 70's were notorious for these kind of really bizarre programming moves that in retrospect might seem horrible but when you were "there" didn't seem that strange. (for more on this check out my avatar! )

And now, yeah, they have a real comfort appeal because of their relative innocence and as Marv said, charm.

Speaking of your avatar, just to see Paul Lynde performing with KISS is worth the effort. Didn't Paul Lynde also appear on Donny & Marie?

I believe he did, yes.

Lynde was a huge favorite of mine when I was young. Loved his biting wit and sense of timing. I was actually a fan of the very short lived "Paul Lynde Show", which was kind of an AITF clone but was peppered with Lynde's special brand of snarkiness.

He appeared on Donny and Marie twice:
Season 2 Episode 15 (aired January 21, 1977)
Season 3 Episode 8 (aired November 18, 1977)

No one could do snarky like Paul Lynde. I can't even imagine anyone else playing Uncle Arthur (Bewitched).

He was incredible on Hollywood Squares, too. Risque without ever going over the tasteless line, just like Carson used to be. It's sad to think how unhappy he seems to have been in his personal life; it certainly never came through onscreen.

I agree. He always seemed to be as happy-go-lucky as Uncle Arthur.

He sure did. Did you ever see his performance as Mr. McAfee in "Bye Bye Birdie"? That's my favorite Paul Lynde performance.

Yes, I did. I also enjoyed him as the voice of Templeton the rat in Charlotte's Web, which ironically reunited him with Agnes Moorehead (the voice of the Goose).
