Indelibly, and by most accounts, happily linked in the minds of television audiences with upbeat suburban mom Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch" (ABC, 1969-74), Florence Henderson began her acting career in numerous musical theater productions during the 1950s. Her effervescent personality and knack with a quip made her a likable guest star on television variety programs throughout the 1960s. But it was her role on "The Brady Bunch" that became the most defining of her career. Her calming, good-natured presence on the show endeared her to generations of young viewers. Henderson tapped into that same maternal warmth for a wide variety of guest appearances, hosting gigs, and promotional opportunities. Despite a lifetime of trying to branch out from her "Brady" persona, Henderson remained ever the trooper, gamely poking fun at her alter ego on numerous occasions throughout the years.
