"The Brady Bunch" first aired in September 1969 and ran for five seasons, airing its last episode on March 8, 1974. The premise entailed the amalgamation of a single mother with her three daughters and a single father with his three sons. Plots for the series centered around common moral issues facing teens at the time, such as sibling rivalry and telling the truth, interjected with comedic relief. While the show was not considered popular at the time by today's standards, an episode of "The Brady Bunch" has aired every day of the year in the United States and around the world since it first went into syndication in 1975.
