The Brady Bunch is an American sitcom created by Sherwood Schwartz that originally aired from September 26, 1969 to March 8, 1974 on ABC. The series revolves around a large blended family which includes six children.
The series aired for a total of five seasons and, after its cancellation in 1974, went into syndication in September 1975. While the series was never a critical or ratings success during its original run, it has since become a popular staple in syndication especially among children and teenage viewers. The Brady Bunch's success in syndication ultimately lead to several reunion films and spin-offs series: The Brady Bunch Hour, The Brady Girls Get Married, The Brady Brides and the 1988 television reunion movie A Very Brady Christmas. The success of the 1988 television movie lead to another spin-off series, The Bradys, that aired on CBS in 1990.
In 1995, the series was adapted into a satirical comedy film entitled The Brady Bunch Movie, followed by A Very Brady Sequel in 1996. A third film, The Brady Bunch in the White House, aired on Fox in November 2002.
In 1997, "Getting Davy Jones" was ranked No. 37 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All-Time.
