The Drummer Boy was the 16th episode of Season 2 of the Blake Foster's Adventures of The Brady Bunch.
Musical stories abound: Bobby attempts (horribly) to play the drums. Meanwhile, Peter joins the glee club, then is mocked by his teammates on his pee-wee football team. It takes Los Angeles Rams defensive end Deacon Jones to set Peter's teammates straight.
Bobby is depressed after being rejected from joining the Glee Club, so Mike suggests a musical instrument. He chooses the drums, but his talentless efforts drive the family and the neighbors crazy. Peter is relentlessly teased because he plays football and sings for the Glee Club. Just as he is about to quit the Glee Club, he and the other football players learn a lesson from Los Angeles Rams defensive end Deacon Jones.
Peter, Jan and Cindy have all been accepted into the school's glee club, which results in two divergent stories in the Brady house. On one side, Bobby is depressed since he wasn't chosen along with his siblings. Mike and Carol want to encourage Bobby to explore other possible musical avenues, such as through the school's music program. They may regret doing so after Bobby makes his choice of instrument, and after they have made everyone in the house support Bobby at all cost in this endeavor, no matter how painful (to their ears) it may be.
On the other side, Peter is overjoyed to be part of the glee club, that is until his football teammates tease him about it being a sissy activity, especially as he was late to the first football practice with pro-baller Deacon Jones because of glee club rehearsal. Mike and Carol hope that Peter regains his joy in being part of the glee club and not to worry about what his peers may think or say about it, especially when Peter is thinking about quitting the club solely because of the teasing.
