Johnny Bravo

Johnny Bravo was created by animator Van Partible for Cartoon Network, and the second of the network’s Cartoon Cartoons.

The series stars a muscular beefcake man named Johnny Bravo, who ends up in bizarre situations and adventures and is always trying to score a woman (though he is usually poor at doing so).

The series was originally part of a series of shorts on Cartoon Network’s animation showcase series World Premiere Toons. The popularity of the shorts led to the network commissioning a full series for the show, which premiered on July 7, 1997.

The series was renewed for multiple following seasons and ended its official run on August 27, 2004. A spin-off of the series, JBVO, was unsuccessful and ran for one season. A television movie titled Johnny Bravo Goes to Bollywood was made and aired in India in 2009, and in August 2010 in the United Kingdom. A 70-minute movie with the same title aired in Australia on November 20, 2011.

Johnny Bravo has received generally positive reviews from critics and is now regarded as a classic Cartoon Network series. The title character is considered “iconic”, and his catchphrases are relatively common in popular culture.[ Many of the writers and directors on the series went on to become famous for their own projects, including Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show) and Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F. Puppy).
