Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (35 ):

Johnny Bravo is one of the Cartoon Network's original series, and -- like Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls -- it's really meant for teenage and young adult viewing. That said, school-aged kids will still find it funny. The pratfalls and cartoon gags are unusual and clever, the animation is well done, and Johnny's determined pursuit of what he calls "babes" gets laughs even from kids who don't get it because the results are pretty much inevitably disastrous. (And mildly empowering for girls, although the "babes" tend toward the nameless and generic).

Probably because no matter how convinced he is of his own greatness, Johnny remains kind and generally good-hearted, he's appealing to viewers of all ages. Kids will also enjoy the show's frequent inclusion of appearances by characters from Scooby Doo and other classic cartoons.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
