Holy Mike Brady’s cardigan! It cannot believe it’s been over six months since I’ve posted an installment of Brady Bunch Moments for your enjoyment.

Here’s a classic minute and a half of early-70s TV wherein Peter Brady (Christopher Knight) dresses up as a Sunflower Girl and goes door-to-door selling cookies for equality. The episode in question originally aired during season two of The Brady Bunch on February 12, 1971.
