Product Details

The show appeared at the peak of television musical variety shows in the '70s. Donny & Marie, Sonny & Cher, Captain & Tennille, Tony Orlando & Dawn, The Osmond Family, and others were part of a genre of television that has largely been forgotten. Every week would bring a new guest star and/or singing act. Only "Saturday Night Live" survives the variety show era and is still in production today.

The Brady show boasted two innovations, the Rockette wannabes known as the "Krofftette Dancers & Water Follies", and a set that featured a large swimming pool for the underwater ballet swimmers. Both are just weird when juxtaposed with the Bradys!

On the DVD, two shows are featured, with guest stars Ann B. Davis (Alice), Tony Randall, Rip Taylor, Vincent Price, Donny & Marie Osmond, and H.R. Puffnstuff. Randall & Price steal their scenes, and Davis is the most comfortable with the bad scripts. There is also a short interview with Bobby & Cindy talking about what it was like growing up as a Brady, working on the Variety Hour, and other things about their careers.
