Robert Reed, 'The Brady Bunch'

First of all, can you believe it's been 40 years since the "The Brady Bunch" premiered? And just five short years later, Mike Brady (Robert Reed) found himself written out of "The Hair-Brained Scheme," which would be the last time we saw the Bradys in first-run primetime (at least until "The Brady Bunch Hour" a few years later). In truth, given Reed's now-famous fight with producers over a storyline about hair tonic being not only unbelievable but downright stupid, he may have found it a relief to be absent.
