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!
