- We know that from his dodging attacks while pretending to be an antenna and the mail sorting slap of doom
- In the pilot episode, Johnny does state that he is the only man to master every form of martial art in the world (before promptly getting squashed by a sumo wrestler, as sumo is the only art that he is still studying).
- The one he found was a vampire I think
- The lady in the Valentine's Day special genuinely liked him, too, but she turned out to be a spy and broke it off for Johnny's safety.
- This may explain his Flanderization in later seasons.. He had to act even stupider to make sure his facade was never broken.
Think about it, every woman Johnny meets (also a lot of men that he meets) is incredibly strong and incredibly beautiful. Practically no one works in that town, probably because they already have plenty of money left over from their modeling days. The citizens who work were probably not so successful as the ones who don't need to work, or they may just enjoy keeping busy. Former supermodels probably take refuge there so the paparazzi don't bother them.
- Considering his looks, Johnny could also be one of them.
- They do have the same standard outfit and blond hair.
- This misght actually make some since seeing how much the two characters have in common.
Greg, naturally, having lived in a Brady-style world would be unprepared for the reality of young parenthood and the pressure led him to flee and abandon his family.
Theres more than just a coincidence of names though. Donny Osmond was actually introduced as Johnnys nanny. An episode of Donny and Marie had featured a several of the Brady children (but not Greg) including a skit in which Donny was brought in as Gregs replacement. Years later Donny Osmond would then seek to become Johnnys nanny, serving to replace Johnnys father.
If nothing else, the Brady family and the Osmond family had a lot in common (particularly if including The Brady Bunch Hour as a part of cannon) and its not inconceivable that Donny and Greg could have become friends and that the reason for a celebrity like Donny Osmonds odd interest in Johnny was his desire to look in on a friends kid for him.
Also, while Johnny and Greg might not seem to have that much in common, they may be more alike than it first seems. Both were ladys men (Johnny just not successfully so). Both were drawn to their family (Greg seemed to spend a lot of time home in a crowded house for a kid his age). Both were surprisingly patient with their respective cute child characters (though its not perfect, compare how he treats Suzy with how he treats other people who annoy him).
Also, even though Gregs language and fashion sense was VERY-seventies in some ways, his behaviour could easily come across closer to a fifties character even then. Johnny of course is based on personalities from the fifties (Elvis and, though the show was made later, Fonzie).
For those who dont know, Lil Elvis and the Truckstoppers was a short lived Australian series set in the outback. The premise was that a baby was thrown from a gold Cadillac in a guitar case and left at an outback truck stop. He grows to be a singer as a young boy. His adoptive parents are convinced that he is the son of Elvis.
Whether thats true or not (being true would require one to assume Elvis didnt die when history recorded it, as of course some people believe) Lil Elvis and Johnny display several common traits. Both favour having their hair up. Both have the ability to move rapidly and even change outfits by spinning (as seen in the opening credits to Lil Elvis and frequently used by Johnny). Its possible that whoever Lil Elvis father was was also Johnnys (maybe he travels the world abandoning kids).
- But Johnny doesn't go to school with Little Suzy. He's also shown to do stuff only adults get to do.
Just look at the two men. Both love their hair. Both love the ladies (though Dandy is allowed to elaborate more on the details due to a later timeslot). Neither is particularly successful with women (including prompting these women to hit them). Both are capable of amazingly quick movements and are as dumb as stumps.
