Dear Abby - Famous TV Dog: Tiger from The Brady Bunch

Dear Friends,

I have a famous TV dog this week who I think lots of you will remember.  Tiger the dog appeared on the first and second seasons of The Brady Bunch.  He was a friendly looking Sheepdog mix, and in the show's storyline, he belonged to Mike Brady's family before he married Carol.

Tiger only appeared in ten episodes, but they are memorable appearances on the show.

"The Honeymoon"
"Kitty Karry-All Is Missing"
"Katchoo"
"Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore"
"54-40 and Fight"
"Every Boy Does It Once"
"Tiger! Tiger!"
"The Tattle-Tale"
"The Impractical Joker"
"What Goes Up..."

There is a sad story about why Tiger disappeared from the show after this short time.  The dog who played Tiger was killed by a delivery driver on the Paramount Studio lot.  He was replaced by another dog who was not a good match for the series, so Tiger was written out of the show.

Here is a short clip of a Tiger episode of The Brady Bunch:


Did you watch The Brady Bunch, and do you remember Tiger?  My Momma grew up watching this show and she says she always liked Tiger.   I would love to hear from you in the comments, below.

Thanks for reading, and wishing you a great weekend!

Love,
Abby

I never did watch The Brady Bunch as a kid, although I recall it being on television. What a cute dog!

I grew up in another country so we did not have TV, there are so many shows I realize that I missed and have vowed to myself when I retire I am going to catch up.

I've never watch this movie but it sounds like a good tv show. Sorry to hear that Tiger got killed in an accident. RIP Tiger!

I totally watched old episodes of The Brady Bunch when I was growing up. I had no idea that Tiger had been killed in an accident. How sad!

I'm surprised to hear that he was only in ten episodes! I definitely remember seeing him in reruns so I thought he was around more.

I guess I didn't watch enough episodes of the Brady Bunch. If I saw this dog, it was only once.

Crystal said...

Oh my gosh, I totally remember him! I don't think my kids have ever seen the Brady Bunch though. They are missing out.
