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, as well as getting him being beaten up by several groups of people, becoming a running gag throughout the series.
Why He Rocks
- A lot of his one-liners are both memorable, quotable, and hilarious. 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.
- Hey 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 can generally be true, but he can still show signs of intelligence and common sense at times.
- Despite his comical stupidity, narcissism, and self-obsession, he has shown to be heroic, considerate, and helpful from time to time with those he knows or doesn't know.
- 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 some 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 was a mistake where he fully understood what it is like to be one when he has switched a woman in an episode and learned how to treat them as more than just beauty. Which made him a whole lot more likable than usual.
- Speaking of which, he has had occasional moments of achieving at his romantic goals, even if it was rather brief.
- While his fallible ego is memorably played for laughs, he has become more of a childish himbo in Seasons 2 to 3. But 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.
