Johnny Bravo is an American animated romantic comedy television series created by Van Partible for Cartoon Network. It is the second of the network’s Cartoon Cartoons, which aired from July 14, 1997, to August 27, 2004. The series centers on the title character (voiced by Jeff Bennett), who is loosely based on Elvis Presley and James Dean.
Johnny Bravo is a sunglasses-wearing, muscular young man who lives with his mother and attempts to get women to date him, though he is usually unsuccessful. He ends up in bizarre situations and predicaments, often accompanied by celebrity guest characters such as Donny Osmond or Adam West. Throughout its run, the show was known for its adult humor and pop culture references.
