  • "I learned that Jesse James is not a good role model."

    Well, this episode is definitely a treat for anyone familiar with The Brady Bunch, especially fans of the series. It is full of references, including mom's favorite vase getting broken, and a full-blown musical number called "Lawn Mowing Day." Here's a sample of the lyrics:

    It's a groovy day on the earth.

    Oh yeah. I know.

    Why are we mowing the astro-turf?


    When the family first meets the dogs, the kids manage to convince dad that they should keep them, but after messing up their bar-b-q, Dad decides the dogs are too stupid to keep.

    At the end, the parents ask the kids what they've learned. Every response given is a direct reference to a different Brady Bunch episode ("I learned not to get hit in the face with a football," etc...).

    All in all, great fun and a definite standout in the series!moreless

  • NOTES (1)

    • A lot of Brady Bunch references were made in this episode.

      The kids and the parents are Brady Bunch-esque.

      The housekeeper Beatrice is a parody of Alice the Housekeeper.

      The music number and the art style parodies the 70s cartoon based on the Bradies.

      Each aspect of the episode have the kids learn a moral lesson (some ridiculous).

      In fact, the dad was called Mr. B by Beatrice and the two oldest kids were Greg and Martha.
