Widower Sheriff Andy Taylor, and his son Opie, live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry, North Carolina. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney Fife.
The marriage of architect Mike Brady and homemaker Carol Martin née Tyler will be the second for both. They have the issue of blending their two already large families, Mike who has three children and Carol who has three children. One additional issue is that the Brady household was testosterone laden with Mike's children being three boys - Greg, Peter and Bobby - and the Martin household was estrogen laden with Carol's children being three girls - Marcia, Jan and Cindy. The six children not only have their usual issues in growing from children to teenagers, and in this situation in getting used to a new parent and new siblings, but also interacting with new siblings whose mentality generally reflects their specific gender, which more often than not is totally foreign to them. Mike and Carol also have the new roles of parent to daughters and sons respectively.

The show received a lot of viewer fan mail, including a few letters from children asking if they could come live with the Bradys, since their own families were troubled or imperfect.

The exterior of the home is shown as a ranch style, possibly a split-level, but clearly not enough height to accommodate a second storey. Yet interior shots show the main level as only a couple steps down from ground level and a full storey up from there, and even an attic up from there. The exterior and interior are severely inconsistent. See more »
It's so beneficial for me to be away from those children in junior high and to be with people of my own mature growth. I'm looking forward to the intellectual stimulation. Nice meeting you boys. Bye.

In 2001, VH1 aired a series of episodes with information bubbles on the screen in the style of _"Pop Up Video" (1996)_. These episodes were collectively identified under the title "Pop-Up Brady". See more »
Hey, it may be corny, but at least your kids can watch it!
Ok, so it may be predictable and corny. However it is one of the few things that come into our home via that cable in the wall that my wife and I can let our young son watch without worry. He thinks the Bradys are "new" and laughs at every episode. By the way, if you don't like it, don't watch it. That's what remote controls are for.
