Getting Davy Jones was the 12th episode of Season 3 of the The Brady Bunch TV series, also the 61st overall episode in the series. Written by Phil Leslie and Al Schwartz, the episode, which was directed by Oscar Rudolph, the episode originally aired on December 10, 1971.
Marcia boasts that she can get Davy Jones to perform at a school dance, then begins an all-out effort to try to get him to appear.
Marcia, president of her school's Davy Jones fan club, hastily promises she can get him to sing at her school's upcoming dance on the strength of Jones' letter saying he would do her a favor. Marcia scrambles to contact Jones to ask him to appear. After unsuccessful attempts at the local TV station and at his hotel, Marcia's appeal to Davy's manager convinces him to make an appearance. Davy realizes he cannot go back on his word.
Marcia and her two friends Laura and Doreen are the entertainment committee in charge of finding someone to perform at their senior prom. With two weeks until the prom, they have come up with no one, when Jan comes up with the idea of Davy Jones, who is in town to do some promotions. Marcia, president of his local fan club, is certain she can get him to appear since he once wrote her a handwritten letter stating that if he was ever in town and could help her with anything, he would do so. Marcia finds that even getting in touch with him directly through his heavy security is difficult.
Everyone in the family tries to help Marcia in getting through to him. When all Marcia's efforts seem to lead nowhere, she decides to abandon her quest in getting him to perform. By that time, news has spread throughout the school that he is performing at the prom, all based on Marcia's promise. Marcia has to decide to continue on with her quest with failing a possibility, or tell who will be a disappointed Mrs. Robbins, the prom's teacher liaison, that she couldn't come through on her promise but at least give Mrs. Robbins time to find a replacement.
