Adios, Johnny Bravo is the season premiere episode of Season 5 of The Brady Bunch, and the 96th overall episode of the series. Written by Joanna Lee and directed by Jerry London, it first aired 14 September 1973 on ABC.
When a talent agent signs Greg to become a rock star named "Johnny Bravo," he lets his new fame get to his head, until he discovers that he was only signed because he "fit the suit."
Singing, the kids audition and are accepted for a spot on Hal Barton's talent review television show. They are even more excited following the audition about being approached by the young and hip Tami Cutler, a talent agent, who implies that she wants to represent them. She and her business partner Buddy Berkman eventually meet solely with Greg because they aren't interested in representing the entire group, but Greg alone. Outfitting him with a flashy suit, they want him to be a solo act and to use the stage name Johnny Bravo.
Greg eventually gets caught up in the potential of fame and fortune and contemplates going ahead with the deal. Greg's act initially places a strain between himself and his siblings, who feel that he acted in his own self-interest despite earlier agreeing that they are not individuals but a group. He also upsets his parents when he announces plans to postpone college. Greg anticipates solo stardom, but when he discovers his recordings have been electronically "sweetened", confronts Tami. Tami and her associate admit they liked Greg only because he "fit the suit", prompting Greg to walk out.
