Johnny B. Bravo is the titular main protagonist of the series with the same name. His middle name was rumored to be Bacon. His shallow, boorish, ill-mannered, and dim-witted traits lead to a severely incorrigible inability to attract women despite his good looks, as well as getting him beaten up by several groups of people, becoming a running gag throughout the series.
Why He Goes Whoa Mama
- A lot of his one-liners are both memorable, quotable, and extremely entertaining. Such as "Do the Boogie with Me! C'mon!", "Yeah whatever.", and "Man I'm pretty!".
- His design is not only iconic but also timeless and fashionable at the same time.
- With this in mind, he is greatly animated (especially how graceful his movements are).
- Jeff Bennett does a brilliant job at voicing him.
- He may seem like a shallow and egotistical moron at first glance, but he has a heart of gold towards his mother and can be good-natured as well.
- For as dumb as he is, he is quite hilarious.
- He is often misjudged as an absolute moron towards those he encounters, while that is generally true, he can still show signs of intelligence and common sense on several occasions.
- Despite his comical stupidity, narcissism, clumsiness, fallibility, and self-obsession, he has shown to be heroic, considerate, and helpful from time to time with those he knows or doesn't know.
- Much like Foghorn Leghorn, he is a great example of making an obnoxious character actually funny, likable, and well-written with a level of charm.
- He is a very well-written Casanova-Wannabe who happens to have a humorous and likable side to his characterization.
- Like many durable characters of fiction, he serves as a constant reminder for all of us to be brave, keep searching, hold family close, and never give up no matter how great the odds are against you; in which shows when trying to do his best in most shorts where he was incredibly unlucky when it comes to helping others or his goal with finding a love-interest being backfired continuously for something more essential to the plot of an episode he's involved in.
- Where Johnny's lustful goal is always hampered comically, he has learned a life lesson in the episode "Witch-ay-Woman", based entirely on how treating women like a love object always was a mistake where he fully understood what it is like to be one when he switched genders and learned how to treat them as more than just beauty. Which made him a whole lot more likable than usual.
- Speaking of which, despite being a flirty yet idiotic schlemiel towards women, there were times when he has had his fair share of moments when he achieves his romantic goals, even if it's occasional most of the time. Especially episodes like "Jailhouse Blues" for example, has many gals flooding John with love and lust.
- While his fallible ego and idiocy was always played for laughs, he has become more of a childish himbo in seasons 2 to 3 (whether if his stupidity comes off as funny or unfunny). This was thankfully redeemable in the last season where he went back to his personality in season 1 (A bit like Ed from Ed Edd N, Eddy).
- He is often the show's punching bag whether he deserved it or was actually unwarranted.
- His line "I like pie!" (in Polish "Lubię placki!") became a popular meme in Poland.
