‘Brady Bunch’ kids reunite to celebrate Kings Island episode
Kings Island, an Ohio amusement park, doesn’t get the headlines and attention of Disneyland and Disney World, but for a shining moment in 1973 it was the center of the pop culture universe. Why? Because those lovable Brady kids from “The Brady Bunch” traveled to Ohio in an episode of the show for a romp through the park, attempting to find misplaced plans for a park addition.
This weekend, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the episode, three of the Brady kids, actors Christopher Knight, Susan Olsen and Barry Williams, reunited at the park, located in Mason, Ohio.
According to MSNBC, the onetime Bradys appeared on stage at the theme park for four shows, during which they sang, danced and told “Brady Bunch” anecdotes. The episode, “The Cincinnati Kids,” was filmed just a year after the park opened in 1972.
Fans packed the 844-seat theater inside the park for the shows.
One highlight was Williams rapping his own version of Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” rewritten as “The Real Greg Brady.”
He claimed the song was written for his teenage son to explain his popularity.
For the curious, video of Williams performing his song is below.
