    Wow, this is a shocker. Florence Henderson, the actress known for playing the mother Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch, just died. :(

    So sad. There's been many tragic celebrity deaths this year but I think Florence's passing is going to affect me the most.

    Florence Henderson and the Muppets were "So Happy Together". We'll miss you Florence.

    Thanks for posting that. One of my favorite songs and one of my favorite episodes of The Muppet Show.

    I'm in absolute shock! I will miss her very much. Not only was she a great actress, but a great singer as well.






    RIP Florence

    Oh, how sad to hear of this....:(:sympathy::concern:
    Florence Henderson's episode of The Muppet Show was great, of course- and I'll always remember her as Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch.

    May God comfort Mrs. Henderson's family in this sad time.:cry:

    Rest in peace, Florence. Her Muppet Show episode was always one of my favorites. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to her television and real family and friends.

    These clips are among my videotape of recorded TMS episodes, and I have watched Brady Bunch long ago, just not as fun as the Muppets! :coy: But I think I'll remember her most in her recent appearance in The Christmas Bunny, or was it titled Just Where I Belong? Either way, it was a lovely movie I saw on TBN's Smile of a Child. I'm gonna catch that next time they play it! Florence Henderson will be greatly missed. :(

    Wow, this is sad. I was never much of a fan of The Brady Bunch, but I still grew up with it nonetheless. I hadn't realized she was in her 80s, but doing the math, it makes sense. She always seemed much younger then that. And since so many actors have passed on, she was one of the few TV legends that were still alive today.

    Her Muppet Show appearance was definitely one of the episodes that stick out in my mind the most, she was a very charming lady.

    I'll miss you, Florence Henderson. I loved her on The Muppet Show, even though I've only seen a little bit of The Brady Bunch, she still seemed like a very nice lady, :(.

    Florence Henderson also made a guest appearance on a rare example of 70s cheese and cracker, when played a proper English woman who was the object of an Arab Paul Lynde's desire, and later she belted out a disco-flavored rendition of Frank Sinatra's "That Ol' Black Magic" in THE PAUL LYNDE HALLOWEEN SPECIAL.

    She also guest starred on Whose Line as well during the 5th season. Here are some pictures from it.

    I watched all the episodes of Whose Line? with my family when I was younger (I even got a family friend hooked on it), but I don't remember that episode! That is awesome! Maybe I missed that one?
