Remember the name of the Brady family's housekeeper? Or, that family dog that mysteriously disappeared after just a few seasons? Think you can name all six Brady kids -- in order? Prove your "Brady Bunch" IQ with this quiz inspired by the classic show!
Show creator Sherwood Schwartz got the idea for "The Brady Bunch" from a 1965 "L.A. Times" article. As he was skimming the paper one day, he noted a statistic suggesting that around a third of all marriages in the '60s involved people who had at least one child from a previous marriage. Of course, at the time, the happy nuclear family dominated TV -- but Schwartz saw an opportunity to reflect changing social and cultural norms -- and thus "The Brady Bunch" was born.
The series ran for five seasons from 1969 to 1974 and lives on in syndication decades after the final episode aired. No one knows if the show would have been as popular if Schwartz's original picks for Mike and Carol Brady -- Gene Hackman and Joyce Bulifant -- played the lead roles, but it's clear that Robert Reed and Florence Henderson were a hit.
