It seems like every time our favorite TV characters take a vacation, they end up in one of three main destinations: Hawaii, Paris or Disney World.
It makes sense that these would be such popular destinations – after all; they’re familiar, easy to film in and ripe for sitcom hijinks. And really, who doesn’t want to hang with Mickey and Minnie or sunbathe in the tropics or even take a romantic stroll along the Seine?
The Brady Bunch’s Carol Brady may be one of the most iconic mothers of all time, but it turns out star Florence Henderson was just as much a loving mom off screen as the famously blended family’s matriarch was on.
Summer means two things for most Americans: A family trip and a lack of decent TV. However, if you’re currently stuck at home, wishing you could find something better to watch, we’ve got an easy, free solution. You can just ride along with your favorite sitcom of choice!
Remember when sitcoms regularly had group vacations, played out over a series of episodes or even over two-hour movie events?
Television and pop culture fans were saddened to learn Sunday that Ann B. Davis, best known as The Brady Bunch’s indefatigable housekeeper Alice, died at the age of 88 after a fall in her Pennsylvania home.
Early baby boomers knew her as Charmaine “Schultzy” Schultz, the man-hungry receptionist on TV’s 1955-59 The Bob Cummings Show. Late baby boomers knew her as Alice Nelson, the eternally optimistic housekeeper on a 1969-74 slice of fantasy Americana called The Brady Bunch.
But no matter the character she played, actress Ann B. Davis, who died Sunday at 88, was unquestionably one thing to all audiences: lovable.
