RIP, Sam the Butcher.

Last Thursday, the world lost Allan Melvin, known to Brady fans as Sam the Butcher. A well-recognized character actor, he also appeared on numerous sitcoms like All in the Family, and he was the voice of Magilla Gorilla and a host of other animated characters. But beginning with "Sorry, Right Number" (the one with the pay phone), he appeared in eight Brady Bunch episodes, and for that, he will always have a special place in my heart!

Awww, we just watched that one over the holidays- I wanted to show Carmen what the Brady Bunch was and that's the episode that was on.

That is sad. It always annoyed me that Alice put up with such a long relationship!

I love the video of Ryan singing. I am glad that you are teaching him to appreciate good music! And, he has style!

He was only in 8 episodes? Seemed like more than that. I too, will miss him!
