Show Notes: Episode 8-1 BONUS: Brady Bunch opening

*The Brady Bunch Effect is credited to Christopher Chapman, who won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for A Place to Stand, a creation for Expo '67 in Montreal.

*Here is an obituary for Chapman with some info about his career.  We also repeat our recommendation of Kimberly Potts' The Way We All Became the Brady Bunch, which has a great explanation of the show's opening sequence.

*Alice Nelson was Mike Brady's housekeeper (and the boys') and stayed with them when he married Carol after his first wife died.

*This ME-TV story talks about how Ann B. Davis created a secret backstory for Alice. The interview referenced in that story is right here (hit the 24-minute mark)
