This past Thursday, six cast members of “The Brady Bunch” got together in Los Angeles at the home that was featured in both the opening and the closing of the sitcom.
Who remembers watching THIS after school?
HGTV purchased the family’s tv home in Los Angeles, located in the Studio City neighborhood for a new series airing on the network, “A Very Brady Renovation.”
I am listening…
Maureen McCormick, Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Eve Plumb, Mike Lookinland and Susan Olsen all walked through the two-bedroom house.
But the interior was said to not resemble what was displayed on the show as the interior scenes were shot in a studio.
The show ran from 1969 to 1974.
According to StarTribune, HGTV has plans to expand the home without compromising the street view. They also want to reimagine the show’s interior design.
The new series is set to come out in September of next year in 2019.
Until, then — here are a few facts you may not know about the cult classic show…
The network apparently would not let Carol be portrayed as a ‘divorcee’ at the time because the concept was so taboo and the actual word ‘divorce’ was on the ‘do not say list.’
The entire show was based on a new story of all things!
Sherwood Schwartz was reading a four-line piece in the Los Angeles Times about blended families and boom! Enter the Brady Bunch…
You may be surprised to know that Bobby, played by Mike Lookinland is actually a natural blond.
He had to dye his hair brown to match the other boys.
Speaking of hair dye jobs..
Cindy, played by Susan Olsen, was naturally blonde but she was still required to have it bleached for the show.
But after it was bleached, it started falling out in clumps as it became ‘too damaged.’
After that, she was finally able to return to her natural shade of blond.
And have you ever wondered why you only see Tiger, the family dog, in just a few episodes?
The dog was actually was hit by a car in the first season while the family was in the middle of filming and he passed away.
The trainer eventually found a Tiger look-alike but it was untrained and it did not work out.
But dry your tears because there was romance in the air too…
Greg, played by Barry Williams, and Marcia, played by Maureen McCormick shared their very first kiss while filming in Hawaii.
Uhm, can you say — adorable?!
And that wasn’t all! It was reported that Cindy and Bobby used to make out on set in Tiger’s doghouse.
Whoa Nelly! Talk about family bonding…
And on that note, we will leave you with that image.
