Myrna Carter was an acquaintance (Carol's cousin) of the Bradys who gave them acting advice for their commercial for "Safe" laundry detergent. Later the director Skip Farnum, said that she was a horrible actress without knowing that the Bradys went to her for advice. Mike constantly mispronounced her name as "Mirna" and would be corrected, "Meerna."
