  • No originality, nothing storywise--a sign of the times on 1970s Saturday morning.

    "The Brady Kids" was a completely disposable cartoon version of the "Brady Bunch" TV show, which while striving to be a family sitcom turned out to littered with the atypical Tiger Beat toyboys (the Brady brothers) and Mary Sues (the sisters) defying all credulity by trying to launch singing careers. This carried over to the cartoon, which bore all the hallmarks of a Filmation production: the movements of the Bradys when they, uh, sang, were the exact duplicate movements the Archies did four years earlier.

    Such unoriginality seemed atypical of Saturday morning TV in 1972--the Osmonds and the Jackson Five had their own cartoons, the Chan Clan, the Bedrock Rockers ("Flintstone Comedy Hour") and Josie contributed to unimaginative pop music (and worse animation). But that the Brady Kids would actually mimic the movements of a previous cartoon seemed the ultimate nadir.
