A performer who achieved fame and recognition as a child star, Robbie Rist first gained audience identification thanks to two key television roles, held on a recurring (and occasionally seen) basis: Cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch and David Baxter, the eight-year-old boy (actually, Rist was 12 at the time) adopted by Ted and Georgette Baxter in the final season of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. In subsequent years, Rist landed occasional roles in features with a marked emphasis on action, fantasy, and children's entertainment. Projects included Iron Eagle (1985), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie (1990) and its two sequels (where he voiced one of the turtles), and the animated adventure Balto (1996). Meanwhile, on the side, Rist remained extremely active as a musician and music producer, and played in numerous "indie" bands.
