There is only one thing that is larger than Johnny’s muscles – his ego. This is, in fact, the main theme of the Johnny Bravo cartoon series – Johnny’s ego gets the main character into all sorts of adventures and problems. As stated on Wikipedia – 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. However, in an interview that aired on Cartoon Network prior to the debut of Johnny Bravo as an ongoing series, Partible stated that Johnny Bravo was a derivation of his full given name, Giovanni Bravissimo Partible.
Johnny often proves that he is his own biggest enemy, whether he is facing a mighty foe or in his attempt to look cool with the ladies. While he still lives with his mother, Bunny Bravo and has a nerdy friend (Carl) and an annoying next door neighbor (Little Suzie), Johnny is never out of inspiration when it comes to meeting and seducing the ladies.
Johnny Bravo – dressed in black with cool sunglasses, muscular and confident, with a blond hair that stands out from the crowd, you’d think Johnny Bravo is quite a ladies man. He thinks the same about him.. the only problem is that he is too confident in his own presence (by the way, he still lives with his mom). Johnny thinks he is the ultimate chick magnet and this often leads to all sorts of weird complications. Johnny Bravo’s pick up lines are priceless.
Bunny Bravo – Johnny’s mother is an energetic and enthusiastic woman, always ready to help her son out. However, each of her interventions lead to disastrous results. Bunny Bravo is the typical portray of a mom that wants only the best things for her son.
Little Suzie – the 8-year old next door neighbor has a little crush on Johnny Bravo. She seems to have the ability to pop up at the worst possible times for our Elvis-look-alike cartoon star.
Carl – a few years back, Johnny Bravo and Carl were best friends. They were both nerds, and Carl still is one today. Quite often, Carl manages to get the girl by simply speaking out the truth and showing his personality, a fact which drives Johnny Bravo the hunk completely crazy.
Pops – the owner of Pops Soda is a good friend of Johnny’s, always being there for him with advice and help.
The Johhny Bravo cartoon series proves that even grown up topics such as dating or certain ways of behaving can be adapted to a kid’s program.
