Sherwood Schwartz, RIP

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jul• 12•11

It would seem wrong for someone of my generation not to note the death today of Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island creator Sherwood Schwartz. He was 94. I remember watching the very first Brady Bunch episode with my siblings in September 1969 in our apartment on East 93rd Street in Manhattan.  We were excited to watch this “brand new series” for kids and it didn’t let us down.  

Sherwood Schwartz.  The name is seared into my brain.  And it comes with music, doo, da, doo, da, doo, doo… 

And oh, Mary Anne.
