From the time The Brady Bunch first aired in 1969, Florence Henderson has been a part of our lives. That's why we're commemorating her work on the sitcom by showcasing her best episodes this Sunday, Dec. 4, at 12 PM | 11C on MeTV.
Despite taking other roles, Henderson remained a part of our lives through the advertisements and commercials she did from time to time.
She sang, danced and laughed to move millions of products over the span of 55 years - everything from cars to denture cleaner.

If people identify any product with Henderson, it has to be Wesson cooking oil. For more than two decades, the actress couldn't get enough of the cooking aid. Through song, she would tell us exactly what "wessonality" really meant. (It meant crispier chicken, in case you're wondering!)

Although Henderson never wore dentures, she did promote the denture cleaner in the late '90s and early 2000s. She said on her website she was happy to advertise for Polident because her family members used it and loved it.
