Michael Paul Brady, better known as Mike, was the father/widower of the Brady Family on The Brady Bunch. He married Carol Martin in 1969, at the age of 36 adopting her three girls, Marcia, Jan, and Cindy Martin. He was an architect. In both the orginal TV series and the subsequent TV films and specials, as well the the TV series spinoffs, was portrayed by Robert Reed. In the 1996 box-office smash film The Brady Bunch Movie and its 1998 sequel A Very Brady Sequel, the part was played by actor Gary Cole.

About MikeEdit

Shortly after the fourth season began, Mike grew his hair into a longer, curly style. He was named "Father of the Year" by a local newspaper after his stepdaughter Marcia submitted an essay. His parents have sometimes been mentioned but never seen (unless depicted without identification at the wedding in the pilot), whereas his paternal grandfather, Judge Henry "Hank" Brady (played by Robert Reed in a dual role) appears in one episode. Mike has a firm personal integrity (i.e. he refuses to participate in commercial if it means saying a product is the best that he believes isn't) coupled with a strong sense of ethics.

It is implied that Mike is a very highly qualified and well-respected architect, although he has had his share of failures. Mike was one of the staff architects with the firm he worked at; the name was never mentioned in the series, and Mr. Ed Phillips was his boss. By the time A Very Brady Christmas and The Bradys aired, he was the senior partner at the firm.
