Johnny Bravo was one of several animated series in the 1990s that debuted on Cartoon Network that would become a hit, and it debuted on this day in television history.
Created by Van Partible, Johnny Bravo focused on the title character, a muscle-bound blonde that sounds somewhat like Elvis Presley. Johnny believes himself to be irresistible to women, but the women he encounters think differently, leading to many comedic situations.
The series began as a short, but became a proper series that debuted on Cartoon Network on July 14th, 1997. Some episodes of the first season were written by talent that would go on to create other animated series in the future like Butch Hartman (Fairly OddParents) and Seth McFarlane (Family Guy).
The series would run for four seasons, for a total of 67 episodes.
