Regarding the Brady Bunch: Check your facts. Anything that happened in the movie doesn't count because this is a list of dads on TV, not dads in movies, particularly when those movies are spoofs. The show ends when Greg is graduating from high school, so college expenses aren't a factor in Mike's credit rating. The family actually lives fairly modestly. The house (which Mike designed himself) only has 4 bedrooms for all those people. I'm sure Alice works for peanuts because she loves being part of the family, she's given room and board, and she doesn't drive so she doesn't have the expense of keeping a car.
The Grand Canyon trip wasn't such a big deal. They drove there in their station wagon and camped when they got there. The trip to Hawaii was paid for by Mike's firm, so that cost the family nothing. The same goes for the trip to the amusement park. That's only three vacations in all those years, and the family only paid for the most modest one. Also, remember that Mike and Carol are both widowed. I would guess that they each collected some life insurance when their spouses died, and when the households merged, they would have sold Carol's house. She may have inherited other assets from her first husband as well.
Lots of people have large families and manage to live within their means. I think the Bradys are among them.

Shall I continue ?
Later when I buy a tow truck and get in business for myself and I have things going good, just got a second truck for cash, and looking for my first employee, she poisons me, almost kills me and squanders everything I worked for in 6 days time with nothing to show for it. I'm really glad this money drain I was married to is dead now.
