12 forgotten kids who played friends, crushes and classmates on The Brady Bunch
The Brady kids befriended TV psychics, giants, princesses and more.
On The Brady Bunch, some of the most iconic moments required other kids to play along. From Marcia inviting Davy Jones to prom to Bobby's overzealous bout as a hall monitor, the show took the most precious memories from childhood and turned them into fodder for great TV. That's why today we want to remember more than just the principle cast of kids who made The Brady Bunch special.
Many of the kids you saw on The Brady Bunch appeared on just that show, but others were gifted child actors cast on shows throughout the 1960s and 1970s, appearing on classics like Leave It to Beaver, Batman, Star Trek, Lost in Space and many more.
To celebrate these young talents, we've created a virtual yearbook that describes the memorable moment from The Brady Bunch, then shows you another awesome role these kids played on TV. Just flip the photo to see another side of these kids who played friends, crushes and classmates on The Brady Bunch.

Likewise, there's another MeTV article about how the "Hawaiian Honeymoon" episode of Green Acres was the worst ever and it "killed the series". It wasn't that bad, and it wasn't the last episode, that was the one about Oliver calling his ex-secretary from New York to ask where he could get his watch repaired. Besides, that was when the TV industry's "rural purge" took place, and even highly rated programs were axed. Pat Buttram (Mr. Haney) called it "the year they killed every sitcom with a tree in it".
It STILL didn't work. Two more episodes and it was gone for good.
And FYI - Sherwood Schwartz had NOTHING to do with The Brady Bunch Variety Hour...except for having created the characters. They never even TALKED to Schwartz until the show was well into pre-production!! That was all Sid and Marty Krofft (and I think you can blame much of the writing on the king of camp, Bruce Vilanch!!) - and I for one, loved it!! I know I'm one of the few on the planet...but I loved the BB...I loved Krofft...I loved music and variety/comedy. It was a perfect (AND perfectly awful) show! I also loved Pink Lady and Jeff!
