It’s the most wonderful time of the year, Outsiders. It’s also one of the busiest times of the year. With so much going on it is so easy to forget to take a second, step back and reflect on the year that was. We all have our own way of getting through the holiday season, and that includes Hollywood stars. Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick wished everyone a Merry Christmas Saturday.
Yes, the longtime star took to her personal account to wish everyone a Merry Christmas with an adorable video that highlighted the old Brady Bunch house decked out in Christmas garb.
Fans loved the tweet. One user tweeted in response, “How sweet! It’s nice to have something in common with so many people; a touchstone piece of our past. It’s lovely of you to share it with us! Merry Christmas!”
Another Twitter user tweeted, “Hey Maureen I see you on the roof. Oh what great memories. Thanks again and have a wonderful holiday.”
‘The Brady Bunch’ Now
Even fifty years later. The Brady Bunch still soars. Folks still love to rewatch old episodes. They love to go back in time and spend quality time with the Bradys.
McCormick told the New York Post, I loved doing the episode [‘The Show Must Go On’] with Florence where we sang ‘Together Wherever We Go,’ where we were two hobos. I also loved the ‘Father of the Year’ episode — I always looked up to Bob [Reed] as a father figure, and my father was just such an important part of my life … so that meant a lot to me. I loved doing the episodes with Desi Arnaz Jr. [‘The Possible Dream’] and Davy Jones [‘Getting Davy Jones’]. They all have special memories.”
There were so many to choose from, but those two choices make a lot of sense for Marsha. When you go back and think about it, Davy Jones and the Desi Arnaz Jr. episodes stand out for her. They were huge episodes for the character and were big-time moments for the show. It was always going to be hard to top those to be sure.
She continued, “The bottom line is that it was about love, coming together, working out innocent problems people had, and a lot of them were basic problems that still exist. We all kind of celebrated working it out together, and I think we all really loved each other — there was a genuine love for all people on show, and I think that resonates.”
The show is still watched and loved by so many fans. Like the fans who commented on McCormick’s Merry Christmas tweet. Fans love and miss the show and you could tell while watching it the cast loved working on The Brady Bunch.
