Peter Brady’s Dad Is A Dumpster Diver

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Goodies from the set of The Brady Bunch will never get dumped, as long as Christopher Knight’s dad is around.

Knight, who played Peter Brady on the classic ’70s sitcom, only has one keepsake from his old Brady days: His director’s chair.

His father, however, could start a Brady museum with the stuff he’s snatched from the set.

Knight says, “My dad stole everything he could. If I threw out anything, he’d go in and take it out of the trash. He still does!”

Along with set pieces and other memorabilia, Knight says his proud papa “somehow” got his hands on almost every original script from the series, even though the entire cast usually threw theirs away after filming wrapped on an episode.

Knight doesn’t mind his father’s packrat ways and says, “I have almost all 116 shows’ original scripts now. They’re all nicely aged and have water stains. It’s pretty cool.”
