'The Brady Bunch': See all the kids (including Cousin Oliver) then and now

Here's the story of the real-life Bradys!

It's been more than 45 years since "The Brady Bunch" first premiered in 1969, introducing to the public six kids who stole America's heart. Marcia, Jan, Cindy, Greg, Peter and Bobby grew up on-screen over five seasons, becoming some of Hollywood's most recognizable faces.

The post-"Brady" years were tricky for several of its stars, and it proved difficult for them to extend their careers beyond their famed personas. It was especially challenging since opportunities regularly arose to reprise their roles, like in the 1976-1977 "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour." Noticeably absent from that cast was Eve Plumb, who refused to commit to a potential five-year contract. (Maybe she shouldn't have worried; it was very much a one-season wonder.)

Robert Reed, despite his famous frustration with the show, would surprisingly agree to reunite with the cast for various projects, including the ill-fated variety hour.

Although they would reconvene through the '80s and '90s for a few reunion events and specials, the (now grown) kids would mostly go their separate ways --  even Maureen McCormick and Barry Williams, who dated on and off during the show's run.

In May 2017, Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland and Susan Olsen shared memories on the "Today" show about late matriarch Florence Henderson, who died in 2016. Henderson was the last of the "Brady Bunch" adults to pass away: Robert Reed died in 1992, Ann B. Davis in 2014 and showrunner Sherwood Schwartz in 2011.

Take a look at the "Brady Bunch" kids through the years -- and yes, that includes Cousin Oliver (Robbie Rist), who joined the show in its final season -- in the gallery above.
