Ann B. Davis and Eve Plumb To Deliver Special Videotaped Birthday Messages

Everybody’s smiling when “The Brady Bunch” cast reunites to celebrate Florence Henderson’s 80th birthday, on The Talk, Thursday, Feb. 13 (2:00-3:00 PM, ET; 1:00-2:00 PM, PT/CT) on the CBS Television Network. Original cast members Florence Henderson (Carol Brady), Christopher Knight (Peter Brady), Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady), Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) and Barry Williams (Greg Brady) will appear. Ann B. Davis (Alice Nelson) and Eve Plumb (Jan Brady) will deliver special taped birthday messages.

Cast members will share fun behind-the-scenes tales from their days on “The Brady Bunch” set, reminisce about favorite memories and episodes, and share personal stories about their television mom. Chef Jason Santos will prepare the classic Brady dish, pork chops and applesauce, in a homage to the memorable episode in which Peter Brady impersonates Humphrey Bogart saying, “Pork chops and applesauce…isn’t that swell!”

The Talk hosts will celebrate the Brady matriarch’s birthday and the ’70s classic TV show by recreating the famous show opening title sequence and donning wardrobe from that era. Additionally, The Talk set will be transformed into a 1970s living room, featuring retro-style furniture, wood paneling and over-sized photos of “The Brady Bunch” cast in character.

“The Brady Bunch,” which premiered 44 years ago, revolved around a large blended family which included six children. The show premiered Sept. 26. 1969 and ran until March 8, 1974.

    I so enjoyed watching the show “The Talk” in honor of Florence Henderson’s 80th Birthday! She looks just fabulous! I knew she always would, she is just beautiful and has a voice to match. It was such a joy to see the Brady kids who are in the same age group as I am. I grew up watching the show from 1969 to 1974 and always watch the reruns. You see, I too lived in a blended family much like the Brady’s but with 9 kids and can relate. Mike Brady always reminded me of my own dad in appearance and was calm and patient (most of the time that is!). The casting of the Brady Bunch was brilliant and 40 years later they still are an enjoyable part of modern but yet old fashioned american family tv! Thank you Sherwood Schwartz!
