Wolf Files: Sitcom Finales

The Brady Bunch (1974): Mr. and Mrs. Brady never talked about sex with their squeaky-clean bunch. What do you expect from their final episode but complete denial?

There is no talk of change or moving on. Remember, that's why we loved the Bradys. They never dealt with real-world problems, except for that time Marcia bumped her nose … or when Pete's voice started to change.

The finale 1974 episode entails Bobby trying to sell hair tonic. The concoction turns Greg's hair orange, just days before graduation. As always, madcap comedy ensues. Robert Reed, who played patriarch Mike, found the whole premise so objectionable that he boycotted the episode. He was kind enough to return for countless TV reunions.
