Christopher Knight Enjoys Dinner with Some of His Former 'Brady Bunch' Siblings — See Who
A photo of "The Brady Bunch" siblings looking at a camera was shared recently by Christopher Knight. It looks like the Brady children are all grown up and ready for a family meal.
On March 9, the acclaimed actor Christopher Knight uploaded an adorable snap on Instagram of him and a few of his former "The Brady Bunch" co-stars having dinner at a restaurant.
Among Knight's dinner companions were Barry Williams, Maureen McCormick, and Susan Olsen. Unfortunately, Eve Plumb and Mike Lookinland were not in attendance.

THE FIRST TIME
"Dinner last night at @eatatbasta with family and missing Tina, Mike, Kelly, @theeveplumb and Ken," the actor captioned the picture of them taken at Basta, an Agoura Hills eatery.
#Peterbrady, #porkchopsandapplesauce, and #thebradybunch were the hashtags Knight used. The dinner was the first time in which a fake mustache and phony persona were not required.
The phrase "Pork chops and apple sauce" refers to a memorable episode of "The Brady Bunch" in which Peter adopts Humphrey Bogart's persona to speak the food's names.
REUNITED SEVERAL TIMES
All the remaining cast members have reunited on several occasions, most recently on the HGTV show "A Very Brady Renovation" in 2019. They even recreated the popular opening credits of the hit sitcom.
Unfortunately, Knight did not succeed at hitting the wrong notes too well.

"The Brady Bunch" premiered at ABC on September 26, 1969, and aired until March 8, 1974. A large blended family with six children makes up the central theme of the show.
Though the series never really became popular during its first run, it has since become a prominent staple in syndication, especially among young children and teenagers.

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE SHOW
Knight, lacking vocal prowess, was instructed to lip-synch during the musical episodes, but it was decided that his shortcomings could be used as a comedy in the "Dough-Re-Mi" episode.

Unfortunately, Knight did not succeed at hitting the wrong notes too well. As a result, his lines in the song were actually dubbed by producer Howard Leeds.
Meanwhile, everyone on "The Brady Bunch" didn't think it would still be on television regularly for the next 40 years, so minor mistakes were sometimes overlooked in a rush to finish an episode.
