    My sister swears she saw a show on TV with Tom Bosley smoking in the Brady Bunch house. No, she doesn't do drugs. What the hell could this be?

    It sounds like last week's That '70's Show.

    Their house has a Brady-like staircase.

    But Bosley didn't appear on that set at any point in the show.

    I remember seeing Tom in a cameo as a therapist in a sitcom last week. Unfortunately I don't remember which show it was.....

    Edit: I just looked it up and it was "That 70's Show" that he played a therapist.

    It would have been filmed in the '70s, I think. It gets weirder. She says Marion Ross was on there, and their son was played by Robbie Rist. I think she saw this when she was pregnant, so maybe it was the hormones. [​IMG]

    Are you sure she isn't confusing Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham with Mr. and Mrs. Howell? Natalie Schafer and Jim Backus were guest stars on two of the 6 Robbie Rist episodes of The Brady Bunch.

    Otherwise, there's nothing in Robbie Rist's credits that puts him in that house with those stars.

    She knows the Brady Bunch backward and forward, so she's not confusing it. I don't know what the deal might be. I've probably run the same searches you ran and also came up empty.
    There is one possibility. It might have been some PBS adaptation. I know I saw some completely crazy play-for-TV with Jean Stapleton and Rue McClanahan as scientists who worked with a singing dolphin or some such craziness, and that doesn't show up on the IMDb, either. I think she might have even said it was on PBS.
    Edit: Gentlemen, stop the presses! We have our first tangible evidence of this thing, in the form of a newsgroup post from 1993!

    6 years later and it's dredged up from the dark cellar of anonymity.
