  • Season 5 Episode 7: Marcia Gets Creamed

  • At the end of the episode, Jeff calls to apologize to Marcia and invite her to do something every day for the next week. Conveniently, Marcia is able to finally accept his offer to hang out, because Jan has taken over the ice cream parlor duties. The thing is, though, why would Jeff call and ask Marcia to do this when he knows she's been turning him down all this time because of her job? There's no way he could have known that she was replaced that day--he wasn't there when it happened, and obviously, Marcia hadn't spoken to him before he called.

  • This is one of the few times that Marcia seems to put "business before boys".

  • Season 5 Episode 6: Getting Greg's Goat

  • This episode aired on Robert Reed's 41st birthday.

  • In this episode, Coolidge High is mentioned. Other episodes mentioned are Fairview High and Tower High, in addition to their own, Westdale.

  • In the last scene where Alice and Carol are cleaning Greg's room, there is a close-up of the vacuum cleaner which is supposed to be running. Notice how the bag is limp, not full of air as it should be. When Alice turns it off, the bag doesn't change at all. Obviously the vacuum cleaner is not running at all and the vacuum sound was dubbed in.

  • Season 5 Episode 5: Peter and the Wolf

  • Cindi Crosby is the sister of acterss Kathy Lee Crosby--and the resemblance is uncanny.

  • Season 5 Episode 4: Never Too Young

  • In one scene, Bobby is daydreaming about Millicent, and they're running to each other. Right before they kiss, look closely at Millicent's face. She rolls her eyes, as if she is either dizzy or completely disgusted by Bobby.

  • Before Millicent comes and kisses Bobby Greg leaves in the car with Peter to go on a date. So why is he up in his room looking at records with Marcia and Jan after Bobby comes back in the house?

  • Melissa Sue Anderson, who plays Millicent here, is best known for playing oldest daughter Mary Ingalls on the 1970's-1980's television show Little House on the Prairie. Anderson eventually married, had two children and became a Canadian citizen.

  • Mike asks Carol to "lend me your tonsils" to sing "I Wanna Be Loved By You." Carol reminds him that he knows that she doesn't have tonsils anymore (both she and Cindy had them removed in Season 2's "Coming-Out Party").

  • Marcia commented on how she didn't want to get the mumps. In the episode, "Is There a Doctor In The House", Carol said Marcia and Cindy already had the mumps, and you can only get the mumps once.

  • This is the first episode where Bobby has braces. They don't even mention that he has them.

  • Season 5 Episode 3: Snow White and the Seven ...

  • At the end of the play, when Mike has to kiss Carol, in the first shot, with Sam and the kids in it, Mike has his hat on. Then in the shot where Carol has to move her head up for him to kiss her, his hat is gone. And in the next shot, when Carol wakes up, Mike's hat is on again!

  • Frances Whitfield, here playing the teacher being honored, was in real life the Brady kids' off set tutor.

  • All 6 kids wanted to play "Dopey" in the play. To settle the argument, Carol made them draw lots. Once Peter was the last one to draw, Carol realized that they were "short one child." Mike told her that "if that was a hint, forget it." Just then Sam comes over and Alice recruits him to be in the play.

  • The Seven Dwarfs were as follows: Sam (Dopey), Greg (Doc), Peter (Sneezy), Marcia (Sleepy), Jan (Happy), Bobby (Bashful), and Cindy (Grumpy).

    Alice played the evil Queen, Carol played Snow White, and Mike was Prince Charming.

  • Season 5 Episode 2: Mail Order Hero

  • At the beginning of the episode, when Bobby and his friends are drinking water from the garden hose, their mouths don't even touch the water.

  • Ann B. Davis (Alice) said in an interview that Joe Namath's knees were so damaged that he could "barely walk", but that as soon as the cameras were rolling, he would "bounce around like there was nothing wrong at all". She added that she and Florence Henderson "actually felt very sorry for him", because you could tell Namath was chronically in pain.

  • Season 5 Episode 1: Adios, Johnny Bravo

  • When Greg drives up to deliver the news to the others that it's only him who's signed up, the other kids gather around him in the driveway. In one shot, Greg's resting his arm on the car seat, but when the camera pans to shots of the others, his arm is nowhere to be found.

  • The character Johnny Bravo would return 24 years later courtesy of a cartoon series created by Van Partible, who used the name from this episode of The Brady Bunch. It centered on an egotistical young man, whom in most episodes, tries to pick up any attractive woman who catches his eye with limited success. The series ran over a course of 3 seasons on Cartoon Network between 1997-2004.
