LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There are 117 episodes of The Brady Bunch, but not every story about The Bradys has been told.
Mike Pingel has penned The Brady Bunch: Super Groovy After All These Years (BearManor Publishing), a book featuring fun facts about the iconic ’70s series.
Pingel has visited the actual Brady house and says there’s no way a family of eight could’ve lived in the tiny home. It only has one bathroom, so the Brady kids would’ve been fighting endlessly. Pingel says that when the show filmed they weren’t allowed to show the bathroom toilet due to FCC rules. Its flush was only heard once onscreen.
Another Brady story: After the family’s TV dog, Tiger, died in real life, his doghouse remained on the set for the rest of the series. Turns out a light had fallen and made a huge hole on the Astro Turf, so Tiger’s house was used to cover up the damage.
