Three actors from "The Brady Bunch" celebrated the TV series' 40th anniversary at Kings Island Amusement Park outside Cincinnati, OH on Sunday.

The actors Barry Williams (Greg Brady), 58, Christopher Knight (Peter Brady), 55, and Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady), 51, were invited by the theme park, where the episode "The Cincinnati Kids" was filmed in 1973.

The Brady cast members met friends, signed autographs and performed a song on stage. Williams, aka Greg Brady, rapped "I'm Greg Brady" to the tune of Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady," Cincinnati.com reported.

"We were making a family-friendly little TV show and hoping for three or four seasons, and we got five," Williams said. "There was no cable, no TV Land back then. It’s quite remarkable the way life has unfolded."

Williams also commented on the show's on the lasting popularity, long after ending in 1974. 

"There were 11 reunion shows and five series. It’s been in 142 countries. It’s never been off the air. I’m very proud of what the ‘Brady Bunch’ stands for," Williams told Cincinnati.com. "It’s been an incredible ride."

Knight, aka Peter Brady, left acting to pursue a business career in the computer industry. He said he had few memories from the show but enjoyed being able to recall those events through his fans.

Olsen, aka Cindy Brady, discussed what it is like to now be the mother of a 16-year-old.

The three Bradys appeared in four consecutive shows throughout the day. There wasn't a  single empty seat in the 844-seat venue, local media reported.

"I think everybody, at some point in their life, wanted to be a Brady," said Brady fan Kim Williamson, who drove more than three hours from her home in Huntington, W. Va., to attend the reunion. "Their whole family seemed so perfect. They were so nice. I think it resonates with the child in all of us to want to be Brady."
