Black Brady Friday

Just in time for the holiday shopping season comes my pal Mike Pingel's latest book on classic '70s television, "The Brady Bunch: Super Groovy After All These Years." Hard to believe that it was 40 years ago that the world's most famous blended family hit the airwaves. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the Bradys until I saw a few of the teaser questions that are answered in the book:

1. Who flushed the never-seen toilet in the Brady kids bathroom?
2. Which character was never seen in the final episode of the series?
3. Which episode did the network demand that the actor wear boxer shorts?
4. Which Oscar-winning actor almost became Mike Brady?

Currently TVLand is celebrating the shows 40th anniversary by airing the show nightly and a special Happy 40th Brady! webpage where fans can watch free episodes and watch interviews with cast members.

Mike Pingel has penned three books, "Angelic Heaven: A Fan’s Guide to Charlie’s Angels" (BearManor); "The Q Guide to Charlie’s Angels" (Alyson Books) and "The Q Guide to Wonder Woman" (Alyson books). He lives in Los Angeles and when not writing books he works as an actor, publicity and webmaster.

"Oh, my nose!"
