A complete set of The Brady Kids animated TV show is finally being released on DVD. The Brady Kids is an animated spin-off of The Brady Bunch. The cartoon ran for 22 episodes over the course of two seasons, before being cancelled in 1973. Talk about a long wait! The ever-useful website, TV Shows on DVD reports the three-disk set will be available February 16, 2016.
The Brady Kids was part of ABC‘s Saturday morning cartoon block. In the first season of The Brady Kids, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, Maureen McCormick, Susan Olsen, Eve Plumb, and Barry Williams all voiced the roles they played on the live-action series. Williams, Knight, and McCormick left The Brady Kids at the end of season one, and the Greg, Peter, and Marcia voice-roles were recast. F Troop star, Larry Storch, voiced Greg’s classmates Chuck White and Fleetwood, as well as Marlon the mynah bird wizard, and Mop Top, the dog.
Here’s the CBS/Paramount press release, via TV Shows on DVD:
At long last, The Brady Kids is available to own on DVD for the first time ever! The Brady Kids: The Complete Animated Series sees the return of members from the original Brady Bunch cast, to voice their iconic roles. When the six Brady kids befriend a magical bird and two panda cubs, their adventures become more amazing than ever!
Watch the Brady kids travel to ancient Greece in “It’s All Greek to Me,” blast off for an out-of-this-world trip in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the End Zone,” and help thwart a bank robbery in “Cindy’s Super Friend.” This rollicking collection contains all 22 episodes of the classic animated series.
As indicated by the title, Brady parents Mike and Carol, and their housekeeper Alice Nelson, were not part of the animated Brady Kids TV series. On the live-action series, The Brady Bunch, the Brady’s dog was named Tiger, rather than Mop Top.
The Brady Kids: The Complete Animated Series is available for pre-order at Amazon.
