Superman on Television

Did You Know?

Superman Meets the Brady Bunch Kids

Superman appeared in a 1972 episode of "The Brady Kids" cartoons (a Filmation spinoff of "The Brady Bunch" TV series). The episode was titled "Cindy's Super Friend" and had Cindy meeting mild-mannered Clark Kent. The Brady Kids team up with the Man of Steel to paint a bank building during the city's "Paint-Up" week. The Wily Toulouse La Trick and his henchman Igor substitute delayed-action invisible paint so that when the bank becomes invisible they can rob it. Little do they realize that Clark Kent can change into Superman any time he can find a telephone booth.

It's was thought unlikely that this episode would ever see an official DVD release as it involved a rare pairing of a Paramount-owned property (the Bradys) with Warner's Superman characters. However, "The Brady Kids: The Complete Animated Series" was released on DVD from Paramount/CBS Home Video in February 2016.
