A Very Brady Katie


Hi everyone, Katie here.

When Glogirly was growing up, she never missed an episode of The Brady Bunch. Although she can't remember what she ate for dinner last night, she's very proud of her encyclopedia-like brain when it comes to useless Brady Trivia.


I bet you can't name the football player that Marcia wanted to go to the big dance with. The one that hit her in the nose with his football. The one she dumped poor Charlie the nerd for. Doug Simpson. That's right.


Although the Brady's had a dog throughout the series run, poor Fluffy the cat lived only as long as the pilot. I knew this was a flawed family.

And how about when Jan thought she was adopted and became insanely jealous of Marcia. True Brady aficionados will remember and likely relate with the infamous line, "MARCIA MARCIA MARCIA!!!"


Guess you don't have to be a Brady aficionado to relate.

Our Mommy loved The Brady Bunch! Remember Marcia's braces???

Patty Woodland said...

I didn't think Glogirly was old enough to know the Brady Bunch - unless it's from reruns

Cory said...

My mom never missed an episode either..The Partridge Family too....

Pasha said...

Shhhhh Katie!!!! You can't tell Waffles Too he is adopted!!!! He is too young for that! It will scar him for life!... oh wait, I think it's too late for that!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Human can't really think about the Brady Bunch anymore after finding out that Greg and Carol were, um, "dating." It makes her eyes hurt to imagine it.

It makes me think about YOU ..... and Waffles Too ..... and then I think: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Pork chops and apple sauce.

I thought the same thing! Lol

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Allie: SPITTY! *horrified look* I think I, uhm...

I have to leave now.


Maxwell: And she really *did* try saying Faraday's name three times.
Not pretty. Wasn't exactly tripping off her tongue.

Just meowing.

Katie and Glogirly said...

BITE YOUR TONGUE, Spitty!!!
I would NEVER. EVER. EVER-EVER.

He's just a big dumb (no offense) boy.
He's all weird and he's got huge feet.
He tries to climb walls. Plain walls. Just jumps and jumps.
Not much between those orange ears.
; ) Katie

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Can you believe my human NEVER saw the Brady Bunch? So yeah, all of this is totally puzzling to her... and to me too, since I've never seen it either. Even when she was a kitten, she was not much for TV.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Mommy has never watched the Brady Bunch. She doesn't think it ever got to our shores but she could be wrong. But she has heard a lot about the show and you guys make it sound so much fun! Maybe she should download the shows...

speedyrabbit said...

Sounds like Waffles Too needs some job training

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Aw, Katie Katie Katie, one day, when you have made him your minion and accepter of all blame, you'll feel different about the little furball!

The Musings Of A Crazy Cat Lady said...

I noticed a certain cable TV channel is running Brady Bunch re-runs. That all takes me back. I, too, found it unfair that Fluffy didn't last beyond the pilot. I think Jan grew up to be prettier than Marcia - no analogies to Katie and Waffles Too, for sure. Katie, you're beautiful!

Molly The Wally said...

That is a blast from the past. Ha is it all about Waffles????? We know Katie you will come up with a suitable story to put Waffles in his place. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, so I just looked at and enjoyed the pictures BOL!

Sierra said...

Our mom says her and her sister always used to watch The Brady Bunch, too!! Hers remembers all the episodes you mentioned :) Hers misses good old shows like that one.

The Kitties of Purring Pines said...

Our mommy watched it too but doesn't have Glogirl's memory. She's trying to get the thought of Greg & Marcia out of her mind ...

CATachresis said...

Hmmmm? They showed it on our TV, but remember nothing except that darn song!! MOL

Austin: "I'm 'dopted! But I won't date Tigger. You can't make me!!!

OK! ;)

The Island Cats said...

The mom watched the Brady Bunch all the time too. She's not quite the aficionado Glogirly is though.

Ann Staub said...

Hahaha... oh Katie... my Brady Bunch trivia is horrible.

Fenris and Family said...

Well Katie we thinks you need two more girl cats and two more boy cats and then you could be the Crady Clowder.

Mommy watched that show too.

Selina said...

Embarrassing, the things they watch sometimes, isn't it? MomKatt sheepishly admits she was a "Partridge Family" fan rather than a "Brady" purrson. At least now she watches cool stuff like the Science Channel, the MLB Channel and "Meownton Abbey". MOL

Also? Anything a cat is in. Well, almost anything.

PURRS!

I am such a bring Brady fan that I have Sunshine Day on my iPod, and sing it when I need a little pick me up.

"When it's time to change, it's time to re-arrange, who you are into what you want to be...sha na na na"...who sang that one Glogirly???
:)

Katie and Waffles Too, The Brady Bunch was and always will be a classic. I agree the show was inherently flawed with no feline....but really, no cat would have complied with such simplistic plot lines.

D Ma said...

i love brady bunch trivia.

Bernadette said...

They all went on to do drugs and live sordid lives. Let that be a lesson to some little orange cat.

LP said...

Katie, one day Waffles' brain will fill in and you will have trained him to do your every little bidding willingly and that's when he will become ,Katie's hench...cat.Katie's henchcat, Katie's henchcat...(sung to the Brady Bunch theme song), he will become your henchhhhhhcat!

the critters in the cottage xo

Thanks for the memories. Purrs and Hugs, the gang at The Cat on My Head

ABBY said...

:::hehehehe::::

Waffles Too do you feel like Marsha???

Cathy Keisha said...

TW says she never watched not one episode. She's older than you so she was going through her too cool for the room phase. I don't think that phase ended until I came into the house and smacked her down. Time for you to smack W2 down.

Derby, Ducky said...

Mum said she didn't watch that show. So no trivia from her.

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Katie--ya know, Tommy is kinda the same way--ask about the Davy Jones episode, and Tommy can quote word for word. I betcha Glogirly would have a fight to the footbal over it!

Noir

PS. Uh, Waffles is getting pretty handsome..
