A Very Brady Christmas

A Very Brady Christmas

"A Very Brady Christmas" is a 1988 television movie based on the television series "The Brady Bunch", featuring all of the original actors who appeared in the series except Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) who supposedly was busy on her honeymoon when the film was being made.


In the movie, Mike and Carol Brady try to reunite the entire family for Christmas. However, all of the Brady kids are facing personal obstacles that might keep them from coming. Greg Brady's wife is spending Christmas with her family while Peter Brady is involved with his boss. Bobby Brady has dropped out of graduate school to become a racecar driver.

Marcia's husband has been laid off while Jan is separating from her husband. Cindy is fighting for her independence.

Even their former housekeeper, Alice, is dealing with a serious issue: Her husband, Sam, has recently left her for another woman.

The plans are disrupted by Mike Brady being trapped in one of his buildings.

In the end, Mike gets out of the trap after Carol (and the rest of the gang) sings O Come All Ye Faithful.


Sherwood Schwartz and Lloyd J. Schwartz wrote "A Very Brady Christmas" with Peter Baldwin as the director.

The cast included:

* Florence Henderson - Carol Brady
* Robert Reed - Mike Brady
* Ann B. Davis - Alice Nelson
* Maureen McCormick - Marcia Brady Logan
* Eve Plumb - Jan Brady Covington
* Jennifer Runyon - Cindy Brady
* Barry Williams - Greg Brady
* Christopher Knight - Peter Brady
* Mike Lookinland - Bobby Brady
* Jerry Houser - Wally Logan
* Ron Kuhlman - Phillip Covington III


The success of the movie helped revive interest in the original television series. Thanks in large part to the movie's success, CBS and Sherwood Schwartz created a new television series in 1990, "The Bradys", based on the characters' adult lives; only six episodes were produced. However, two movies were made later in the 1990s featuring a new cast that were spoofs of the original show.
