Dough Re Mi was the 16th episode of Season 3 of the Kids World's Adventures of The Brady Bunch.
This episode marks the on-screen singing debut of Marcia and Bobby. Greg's singing debut was in Season 2 episode "Where There's Smoke", while Peter, Jan and Cindy first sang in "The Drummer Boy".
The episode that made musical history ... at least in the Brady's world. Greg writes a song and invites his siblings to join him in recording the song. One problem: Peter's voice is going through puberty, and cracks at inopportune times during the song. Songs: "We Can Make the World a Whole Lot Better," "Time to Change."
Greg needs $150 to cut a music record. To get the money Greg forms a singing group with Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Bobby, DJ, Stephanie, Malcolm, Dewey, Emily Yeung, Littlefoot, Ash, Tai, Pooh's Adventures Team and rest of their friends, The Brady's Siblings and the kids, but Peter's voice begins to break. Greg comes up with a new song to accommodate the breaking voice. Two songs are featured: "We Can Make the World a Whole Lot Brighter" and "Time to Change".
Note: Christopher Knight disliked that episode - of all six Brady kids' actors, he was the only one who didn't like singing (even admitting it himself).
Greg has written what he figures is a sure-fire hit song, entitled "We Can Make the World a Whole Lot Brighter". His excitement turns to dismay when he doesn't have the $150 needed to rent the recording studio. Peter convinces him that family groups are big, and that with the six of them, they can make the song better, and share in the expenses. With Mike advancing their collective allowances, Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Bobby, DJ, Stephanie, Malcolm, Dewey, Emily Yeung, Littlefoot, Ash, Tai, the rest of their friends, The Brady's Siblings and the kids are able to come up with the money and book the recording time.
As Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Bobby, DJ, Stephanie, Malcolm, Dewey, Emily Yeung, Littlefoot, Ash, Tai, the rest of their friends, The Brady's Siblings and the kids rehearse the song, they notice that something isn't sounding quite right, namely Peter, whose cracking voice is starting to change into manhood. With the recording date a few days away and the money being non-refundable, the kids have to decide if they will record without Peter who contributed throughout the process, record with Peter whose voice will probably ruin the final product if it hasn't completely settled (which in all likelihood it won't despite Peter doing whatever he can to speed up the process), or forfeit the $150. Or is there a fourth win-win option?
