The Teeter-Totter Caper was the 14th episode of Season 3 of the Blake Foster's Adventures of The Brady Bunch.

Synopsis

Bobby and Cindy are asked by their older siblings to stay out of their way, then are told they weren't invited to their Aunt Gertrude's wedding. In a fit of self-importance, they set out to set a world's record for teeter-tottering.

Summary

When they are not invited to Carol's cousin's wedding and asked to stay out of the way of their older siblings' activities, Bobby and Cindy decide to show how "important" they are by setting a world's record for most hours on a seesaw. They get newspaper coverage for their attempt, which ultimately fails when they fall asleep short of the record. The older siblings realize the attention-craving Bobby and Cindy indeed have their place in the family and are worthy of respect. In the subplot, the older Bradys are planning for Carol's cousin's marriage.

Storyline

Bobby and Cindy seem to be excluded from doing a lot of things because they are considered too small or too young, including going to a relative's wedding reception, to which even the older kids are invited. They decide they need to do something monumental to show everyone that they can do anything that bigger kids or grown-ups can do. Seeing a human interest piece on the television news about two college boys who are attempting it, Bobby and Cindy decide to try and break the world endurance record for teeter-tottering, the current record being 124 hours.

When they tell their family, no one really comprehends what they are trying to do until Alice finds out what the current record is. Mike and Carol allow the kids to continue until Bobby and Cindy or their bodies decide on their own to quit despite Mike and Carol realizing that there is no way they can break the record. But will Bobby and Cindy's attempt in and of itself prove their point?
