Johnny Bravo is a vain, male chauvinist who thinks he is God's gift to women. With his Elvis sounding voice, tall blond hair, large biceps, Black T-shirt and dark shades, Johnny assumes he can lure any woman and make them fall in love with him. Big mistake as in the show, the women dislike his attitude and think he is a complete moron, so much so that one of them pepper sprays him in the eyes and another judo throws him to the floor. However, all is not lost as he has his mother and a little girl named Susie for company.
The animation is good, not to mention the story lines as well and the dialogue is very funny. The so-called pilot is one of the funniest episodes and features a pink-yet camp behaving gorilla! Jeff Bennett does a exceptional job voicing Johnny I wonder whether it was the creator's intention for him to sound like Elvis. Anyhow, it's a pity the series was short-lived, as it was one of Hanna Barberra's best shows around during that time.
Overall, Johnny Bravo is one of the best cartoons, particularly coming from an animation giant such as Hanna Barberra.
