Marcia, Marcia, Marcia

I could not imagine my childhood without the Brady Bunch. The orange and green kitchen, the sunken living room, the hair, the clothes, Alice and the dorkiness of the Brady boys, there was so much to love about that TV show. As the youngest child in my family, I was Cindy; the difficult middle child Jan was too annoying, but I wanted to be Marcia. I loved her hair, her geeky boyfriends and her mini skirts. Thank you Maureen McCormick (10 years older than me) for breathing life into Marcia and giving me a teen girly idol when I was 7. Maureen was also the voice of the Chatty Cathy doll in 1970, but I am far too young to remember that.

    Lou , We use to PLAY Brady Bunch at lunchtime in primary school , there was always a challenge to see who wanted to be Cindy ! I do blame Brady Bunch for making blended families look so easy . Also the mystery of where the other spouses disappeared to has weighed heavily on me for years . BUT I love still watching the episodes over and over and am amazed that the format still engages my kids.

      Maybe our kids like it because the look and feel of the show seems so old fashioned now, it’s safe. I have such a full life I’ve written more about the Brady Bunch for my Fringe show! Apparently Mike Brady was a widower and Carole had an ex husband but they didn’t want to mention him on the show at the time. I still want to be Marcia
