The Brady Bunch is a sitcom that aired on ABC.

Mike Brady, a widowed architect with three boys, marries Carol Martin, a single young mother with three young girls. The couple and their formerly-separate families become one close-knit, united family. The family shares a four-bedroom house Mike designed in a suburb of Los Angeles. Other members of the Brady household include Alice Nelson, the family's housekeeper and Tiger, the boys' beloved pooch. On occasion, Alice's boyfriend, Sam Franklin, a local meat butcher, is seen. Stories revolve around family unity and sibling rivalry, dating, misunderstandings, family vacations (the Grand Canyon and Hawaii), and growing up. The stories changed as the children grew into teenagers.

After this series, there were multiple spinoffs in a variety of formats, including a variety show, an animated series, and a dramedy. For a complete list of spinoffs, see The Brady Bunch franchise.

The Brady Bunch was produced by Redwood Productions and Paramount Television in association with ABC. CBS Television Distribution is the show's distributor.
