How would "The Brady Bunch" have been different if Bonnie Franklin had played Carol?

Let's just assume that Franklin had been the same age as Florence Henderson.

I can only imagine a lot of, "Dammit, Jan!"

What do you think?

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 4303/24/2014

Sorry, Kitty CaRRy-All.

Dammit, Tiger!

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 103/04/2013

OP?

It's time to let it go. It's just not that funny.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 203/04/2013

I also think that Ann B. Davis would have been fired after the first 13 episodes.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 303/04/2013

R2 is fired!

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 403/04/2013

She would have been 25 when it debuted. I think she would have been good as Jan.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 503/04/2013

Too unattractive to be believable as Marsha's mother. Would've clashed with the light comedy tone on the show by bitterly bitching at Mike and the kids constantly.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 603/04/2013

I did mention in my original post that we have to assume that Bonnie were the same age as Florence Henderson when the series began.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 703/04/2013

Who would have played Marcia, R6?

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 803/04/2013

I also think that Mike/Robert Reed would have gladly moved out of the house, taken up with his gay lover, and only have seen the kids on the weekend.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 903/04/2013

Bonnie and Flo were bitter rivals in the Crisco vs. Wesson Oil debate.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1003/04/2013

Hold me, Mike. I'm scared.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1203/04/2013

None of the kids had drug problems did they? I don't recall any stories.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1303/04/2013

Marcia was a coke-head, Cindy has definitely done a lot of drugs and is also an alcoholic.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1403/04/2013

Yeah, but neither of them ended up robbing a dry cleaner, or getting kicked out of their mobile home, R14.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1503/04/2013

For Christ's sake, Carol, can you wear a fucking bra? I don't need to see your nips.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1603/04/2013

How would "Bonnie & Clyde" have been different if Bonnie Franklin had played... Bonnie?

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1703/04/2013

Hold me, Mike. I'm scared.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 1803/04/2013

Oops someone beat me to it.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2003/04/2013

DAMMIT ALICE!

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2103/04/2013

"Fine, Jan... Don't come home."

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2203/04/2013

The "exact words" episode would have been preceded by a parental advisory that 'strong fuidance" was required.

Sam the Butcher would have cracked bad jokes and hit on Carol.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2303/04/2013

Oh, dear.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2403/04/2013

I don't know about Bonnie Franklin as Carol Brady. However, the show would have definitely benefited from an actress like Jennifer Lawrence as Marcia Brady. Maureen McCormick did an adequate job I think Jennifer would have really elevated the role with her amazing acting ability and her stunning beauty. Jennifers kind heart and beautiful spirit shine through whenever she graces the screen. Her portrayal would have made Jan Brady one of the most iconic characters in television history. I guess it's just our good fortune that she was not spoken into existence until well after the show ended. Hollywood and the youth of the world now have this shining example of talent and humanity to look up to at a time when it is so desperately needed.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2503/04/2013

Carol would have sexually harassed Alice.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2603/11/2013

Can you imagine Bonnie with Carol's shag?

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2703/11/2013

Carol would have had an affair with a married man.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2803/11/2013

Cousin Oliver would have been a pre-gay Italian boy.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 2903/11/2013

Sam would deliver his meat to Carol instead of Alice.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3003/11/2013

OP = Epic Fail

Try Linda Lavin, she's not the reigning bitch of old CBS comedies.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3103/11/2013

Bumping this thread so that there are four Bonnie Franklin-related threads on the front page at once

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3203/24/2014

You're over-posting this Bonnie Franklin garbage.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3303/24/2014

Well, it would have been exactly the same wouldn't it? These things are scripted and not left completely to the actors imagination.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3403/24/2014

who is bonnie franklin?

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3503/24/2014

Alice: Mrs. Brady!

Carol: MS. Brady.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3603/24/2014

Instead of getting her voice back just in time to sing O, Come All Ye Faithful in church on Christmas morning, Mrs. Brady would miraculously recover from a sprained ankle and throw on a pair of jingle taps just in time to do a dance to Sleigh Ride at the Old Folks Home.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3703/24/2014

Carol Brady would have no longer been a Gypsy.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3803/24/2014

Bonnie Franklin was a cunt, stop making threads about Cunty.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 3903/24/2014

"Oh my nose!"

When Marcia said that line of dialogue, it would have been because of the coke bump she had just done, rather than a football.

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 4003/24/2014

[all posts by tedious, racist idiot removed.]

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 4103/24/2014

Did Mike use Wesson Oil as lube?

by Tiger, humping Kitty Cally-All in the dog housereply 4203/24/2014

I think a better question would be if MTM as Beth played Carol.
