On Twitter on Tuesday, the family of Gilbert Gottfried shared the sad news of the comedian’s death. “We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our beloved Gilbert Gottfried after a long illness. In addition to being the most iconic voice in comedy, Gilbert was a wonderful husband, brother, friend, and father to his two children. Although today is a sad day for all of us, please keep laughing as loud as possible in Gilbert’s honor.”

Of course, millions of people remember Barry Williams from him playing Greg Brady on the sitcom. It ran for five seasons on ABC between 1969-74 and has been a staple of syndication TV ever since. Williams has remained close to the show and its cast over the years.

Others that are still popular in the world of social media from the show include Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia Brady. Both Williams and McCormick were the older Brady siblings on the show. McCormick will share moments from her life on Twitter or Instagram.

TV Show Was Created By ‘Gilligan’s Island’ Creator Sherwood Schwartz

They both have a large following as generation after generation of new fans become acquainted with The Brady Bunch. It was created by Sherwood Schwartz, who also was the creative genius behind Gilligan’s Island, another classic TV staple. As remembered by millions, The Brady Bunch also had Florence Henderson, Robert Reed, and Ann B. Davis among the lead actors.

Williams and McCormick were joined in the group of young Brady kids with Eve Plumb, Christopher Knight, Susan Olsen, and Mike Lookinland. The show also had its fair share of sports celebrities appear over the years. People like Deacon Jones and Wes Parker, who played with the Los Angeles pro sports teams during the show’s original run, were on there.

But The Brady Bunch simply was a show about two divorced people with three kids each getting married. Each episode would have one or two of the kids up to something. Either they broke Mom’s favorite vase or were causing trouble between themselves. Of course, Carol and Mike would have issues pop up, too, and it all adds up to comedy and even serious moments as well. If you are looking to see the show, then you can try your local cable TV station or a streaming channel like PlutoTV, too.
