The Brady Kids was an animated kids TV show about the Brady Bunch kids living a fantasy life in their treehouse with their dog (Mop Top), two Pandas (Ping and Pong) who spoke in a crazy language that sounded a bit like Chinese, a Mynah Bird named Marlon that had magical powers, and their weekly guest stars.

The Brady Kids was, of course, a "spin-off" of the series, "The Brady Bunch".
A one-hour long episode of The Brady Kids appeared as the very first episode of the ABC Saturday Superstar Movie on September 9, 1972.
The Brady Kids' executive producer was Sherwood Schwartz. Sherwood was also the creator of The Brady Bunch. The filmaking producers were Norm Prescott and Lou Scheimer. Hal Sutherland was the director and the music was written by Jeff Michaels and Yvetta Blais.
While original air dates varied due to syndication, most stations broadcast The Brady Kids between September 9, 1972 and August 31, 1974. Air times were generally 10:30 or 11:00 AM on Saturday mornings.
Originally, there were 18 episodes of The Brady Kids produced with the voices done by the original Brady Kids actors. Then when more episodes were ordered, Barry Williams, Maureen McCormick, and Christopher Knight chose to not participate. According to Barry Williams, they each read a long list of words into a tape recorder and their lines were put together from those tapes for the new episodes along with new actors who filled in other words.
Superman and Wonder Woman both guest-starred on The Brady Kids. It was actually Wonder Woman's first appearance anywhere as an animated character!

Alice, Sam, mom, and dad Brady never appeared on the Brady Kids. Most of the series concentrated on the kids, their friends, and their animal friends playing outside and (mostly) hanging out in their treehouse.
Note: Since this series was syndicated, original air dates varied according to each local stations programming. Therefore, there were no official first air dates.
