Can you believe that it's been over 10 years since Johnny Bravo came out? One of the cartoons that launched Cartoon Network's new brand of cartoons? All of them, the Power Puff Girls are legal, Dexter will probably have graduated College by now with his IQ. It made me think, if we were to find these now classic Cartoon network characters, where would their lives have taken them. So, allow me to present:
Where Are They Now? The Cartoon Network Addition!
First, we take a look at Johnny Bravo, dimwitted Elvis-impersonating womanizing meathead.
The last few years haven't been kind to Johnny. Years of chasing tail and generally causing property damage with his moron antics finally made his Momma Bunny Bravo put her foot down. Either get a job or get out. So, Johnny got a string of jobs, one after another, failing each time due to general incompetence or hitting on his bosses. After almost getting sued for sexual harassment, Bunny kicked Johnny to the curb.
Homeless, directionless, Johnny crashed with reluctant friend and eager annoyance Carl. Inbetween Jobs, Johnny cooked and cleaned for Carl, growing more and more discouraged by his frequent strike-outs. Even Little Suzy, the neighborhood girl bid a tearful farewell to Johnny when her parents moved to find work when the economy started to collapse.
Eventually, Johnny stopped going out altogether. He grew steadily more depressed and lonely, pigging out on pork rinds and watching soap operas. Wanting to help his friend, Carl introduced Johnny to the world of internet dating. This lead to another string of failed dates, mostly with talking animals, and in one case, a tugboat.
Years later their good friend Pops, owner of their favorite restaurant, announced that he was retiring and going to sell his Diner. Johnny decided to make him a going-away meal. Pops was impressed by Johnny's skill with a griddle, years of cleaning and cooking for Carl finally paying off. Pops decided that if Johnny could come up with the money, he'd sell his Diner to him.
Distraught, he asked Bunny for money, but she was using it to go on a thrill-seeker tour around the world. Carl was well off as a computer programmer but couldn't lend him the money and support them both in their living situation. Growing desperate and depressed once more, Johnny blogged about it on his MyBlog page. A mysterious Message appeared, offering to loan him the money. Carl warned Johnny it had to be a scam, but when the mysterious benefactor offered to meet Johnny before giving him the money, Johnny threw caution to the wind and agreed.
Nervous about his first time out on the town in several years, Johnny was shocked to discover the mysterious benefactor was Suzy, now 20 years old and all grown up. Using her parent's money (They're famous movie stars) she lends Johnny the money in exchange for a date. Johnny reluctant agreed.
years later and Johnny and Suzy are still together. She is an up and coming actress, having become famous as a teen pop singer. Johnny still runs Pop's Diner, and while Suzy is away on set or studying for college, he spends time with his Momma's old biker gang. He's got a bit of a paunch from all that good food and not as much working out, but Suzy still loves him for the big, doofy idiot he always was.
While Johnny's womanizing days are done, his charming antics are still the talk of the town, making him a public figure in his home town.
And now you know the rest of the story!
