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.

Somehow I would not consider Pamelyn Ferdin as “forgotten” as she appeared in so many ‘60s and ‘70s tv shows. She has a pretty substantive following on FB and has been a pretty vocal advocate for animal rights over the years.

Kym Karath as the littlest Von Trapp child in The Sound of Music ensure that she would not be “forgotten”

* Pamelyn Ferdin was also the younger daughter of Paul Lynde on his sitcom! ☺

Besides Pamelyn playing Felix's daughter on The Odd Couple Doney Oatman also played Felix's daughter. Kimberly Beck years later was on Rich Man, Poor Man: Book II, and the movie Roller Boogie.

I really enjoyed this. There were some that I didn't know...especially Rory Stevens being the same actor who played Chuckie on Leave it to Beaver. No wonder he looked so familiar! However, there is a mistake in the mention of Todd Lookinland. "Kelly's Kids" was NOT the final episode of the Brady Bunch. It was a pilot of sorts, but there were several episodes after it. And I think it's fair to point out that one of Kym Karath's greatest claims to fame was playing the youngest Von Trapp child, Gretl, in The Sound of Music. Nicholas Hammond, who played Gretl's oldest brother Friedrich, also appeared on the Brady Bunch in the infamous "The Subject was Noses" as Doug Simpson, the big man on campus.

I’m surprised that they did not mention Nicholas Hammond as Doug Simpson who would become Spider-Man on the 70s series. Or The Sound of Music for both him and Kym.

I was just coming on here to say about those 2 in Sound of Music. Do they not check their IMDB page BEFORE they write these things????
* Sherwood Schwartz should've spun off KELLY KIDS into a sitcom instead of doing that horrendous Brady Bunch Variety Hour! ☺
MeTV themselves has pointed out more than once (in other articles and quizzes) that "The Hair-Brained Scheme" was the last episode. It might be nice if they read their own stuff before making mistakes like this.

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".

So many of these familiar kid actors appeared in tons of TV commercials, which this article failed to mention. Otherwise, it's very good! 😀

How anyone can call Pamelyn Ferdin "forgotten" is beyond me. She was EVERYWHERE in the '60s and '70s, until she quit acting to become a nurse and animal activist. She's very active on Facebook; she's also writing a book about her life as one of the most sought-after child stars.

I remember Kimberly Beck on the night time drama Peyton Place, it used to come on USA Network or another one in the 1980s. I also remember seeing her in the film Yours Mine and Ours, I think she played one of Lucille Balls daughters and I also remember her in the day time drama Capitol she was Kimberly Beck Hilton then. This was on before Bold And Beautiful began. I wonder if she was/is married to anyone from Paris Hilton's family?

Kimberly Beck was briefly married to William Barron Hilton, Jr. in the late 70s and early 80s. William Barron Hilton, Jr. is the grandson of Conrad Hilton, the founder of the Hilton Hotel chain. He's the brother of Paris Hilton's father, Richard Howard Hilton. Richard Howard Hilton was married to Kathy Richards, half sister of actresses Kim and Kyle Richards.
