Seasons

The first season was mostly written and animated by Van Partible, Butch Hartman and Seth MacFarlane. However, after the first season, Cartoon Network "retooled" the series, without Partible's involvement, with new writers, new characters and new character designs. Partible returned, along with MacFarlane and Hartman, for a third retooling, returning the show to its original style. The third retooling was met with a very poor reception however, and lasted for only a few episodes. Butch Hartman Butch Hartman (Born January 10, 1965, Highland Park, Michigan) is an American animator, creator of Fairly Odd Parents, Crimson Chin, Crash Nebula, and Danny Phantom. ... Seth Woodbury MacFarlane (born October 26, 1973) is a two-time Emmy-winning American animator, screenwriter, producer, director, and voice actor. ...


Plot

Johnny Bravo, set in the fictional Aron City, tells the story of the boorish skirt-chasing eponymous character constantly searching for a woman willing to date him. Though he can be successful, something almost always goes wrong (Johnny either ends up getting pummeled by the girl of the week, or ends up the victim of one of the show's twists, or is left in strange predicaments). Johnny is described by the show's producers as "The quintessential self-absorbed guy who 'just doesn't get it.'"[citation needed] Poster to the Johnny Bravo pilot // Super Duped / Bungled in the Jungle / Bearly Enough Time The Sensitive Male / Bravo Dooby Doo Date With An Antelope / Did You See A Bull Run By Here? / Cookie Crisis I Used To Be Funny / My Fair Dork / Twas The Night Over The Hump! / Blarney... An eponym is a person (real or fictitious) whose name has become identified with a particular object or activity. ...


Johnny is unemployed and lives with his mother, Bunny Bravo. In some episodes, however he is seen working as a janitor for his karate instructor, Master Hamma.


Johnny's name is mostly a throwback to an episode of the American television sitcom Brady Bunch, wherein Greg Brady wanted to be a rock star using the "hip" alias 'Johnny Bravo'.[citation needed] The Brady Bunch was a US television situation comedy, based around a large family. ... The following is a list of characters from the American television series The Brady Bunch. ...


In the original series, it was typical that the narrator said a line that he also repeated after Johnny fell into some absurd, insane predicament, namely "(he's passing / going through / in) the zone, where normal things don't happen, very often." Another running gag of the series was Johnny's use of adjectives to describe things he liked (i.e. after drinking lemonade, he would say, "Mmm! Lemony!").

Main Characters

  • Johnny Bravo (voiced by Jeff Bennett) — Johnny has the looks of James Dean and sounds like Elvis Presley, except for having a Fonzie-like appearance. He is incredibly narcissistic and dim-witted. One notable exception was the Cartoon Network "Golden Anvil Awards," during which Johnny served as the host and was very witty and suave. He is also notable for the distinctive sound effects that accompany his often blindingly quick movements (usually done while trying to impress women) the crack of a bullwhip being the most popular, along with his muscles flexing and shown in a bodybuilder fashion. In every appearance he wears his trademark sunglasses, and in the episode "My Fair Dork"[citation needed] it was revealed that his confidence in getting the girls comes from them. A running gag of the show is Johnny Bravo's constant and incorrigible inability to successfully attract women. The nearest he ever gets to being successful is when he dates Velma Dinkley-who ends up refusing to date him more and goes back to her life of solving mysteries.
  • Bunny Bravo (voiced by Brenda Vaccaro) — Johnny's mother — a rather atypical person — she seems to have a "flower power" past and sometimes reveals some surprising hidden talent or other. She's very dedicated to her son, although she's aware of his low intellect and womanizer attitude, so she sometimes does not treat him and his problems seriously. Nothing is ever heard or seen of Johnny's father.
  • Little Suzy (voiced by Mae Whitman) — a little red-haired girl (6-year-old) from the neighborhood (often called "neighbor girl" by Johnny), very cunning and talkative. She seemed to have a crush on Johnny in earlier seasons, and bonded with Mrs Bravo in the later seasons the most, whilst retaining some feelings for Bravo. Her parents were never shown. She is often connected to big time celebrities by blood or by family relations. It was revealed in an episode about her birthday that Farrah Fawcett is her cousin.
  • Carl Chryniszzswics (voiced by Tom Kenny) — local genius and geek, very interested in science, but somehow weird and timid. He seems to be Johnny's only friend, although Johnny often denies that. He sometimes uses Johnny as a guinea pig for his experiments' sake. He used to bully Johnny in high school, as he was much taller than Johnny.

Carl wasn't introduced until the second season and there is reason to believe that the geeky boy who wore huge glasses that appeared in season one was his predecessor.

  • Pops (voiced by Larry Drake) — greedy owner of a local chili restaurant, could be considered as Johnny's substitute father. Alas, his tips and advice often turn out to be useless and provoke trouble for Johnny and the gang. His chili is made from rather suspicious ingredients and he serves food made from many animals, such as possums, pandas, seals and bald eagles. Like Carl, Pops was introduced in Season Two.
  • Master Hamma — a martial arts instructor where Johnny works as a janitor and does other things that he needs Johnny to do. Johnny also has taken, and failed, several of the martial arts classes.

Master Hamma appeared in Seasons 2 and 3, but not 1 and 4. Larry Drake. ...

  • Donny Osmond (voiced by himself) — Often used as a minor, laughingly useless character in some key episodes, Donny is seen as cheery and extremely optimistic to the point of foolishness. This personality is a stark contrast to often very serious Johnny, thus causing tension between himself and Donny. In his first appearance he was Johnny's nanny.

Johnny Bravo - General Comments in J in in Jump The Shark (914 words)
Johnny Bravo has always carried a witty, subtle brand of humor with a little nuttiness thrown in, and as long as it keeps that up, it'll stay well away from the shark.
Though Johnny Bravo's steam was petering out towards the end of the first season (how far could the concept of an egotistical womanizer be taken and still remain kid-friendly?), the addition of Pops and Karl hurt the show more than anything else I'm aware of.
Johnny Bravo has gone the way of many of the other Cartoon Cartoons, It started out original, but now they're just copying plots that other shows have done a million times before.
Johnny Bravo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1564 words)
Johnny Bravo was an American animated television series about the boorish, skirt-chasing title character who constantly searches for a woman willing to date him, but even when he seems to find one, something goes wrong.
In particular, Adam West's appearances on Johnny Bravo as a ludicrously over-the-top version of himself was the precursor to his playing an even wackier self-parody as Catman on Fairly Oddparents and Mayor Adam West on Family Guy.
It is popularly believed that Johnny's name came from Greg Brady's stage name from an episode of The Brady Bunch, and it is possible that creator Van Partible was influenced by this source.
