Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Censorship: On the original airing of The Aisle of Mixed-Up Toys, after Johnny tries hitting him, but flies over his head, Raggedy Angelo's line was "What a spazz".

      In most (if not all) prints of this episode that air today, the word spazz has been replaced with turkey. It is easy to notice this edit as Angelo's voice suddenly changes to a deeper one when the word "turkey" is spoken.

    • The toy store Johnny visits in the episode The Aisle of Mixed-Up Toys is called "Eternitoys" (with the first "R" written backwards), and their motto is "They last forever".

    • The restaurant Johnny went to during The Day the Earth Didn't Move Very Much was called "Chez Rich".

    • The short blond guy with glasses who seems to be the only person on the beach to notice a shark is among them during Beach Blanket Bravo has previously appeared in two other Johnny Bravo episodes: in I Used to be Funny, as the guy who kept kicking Johnny when the clowns put a "kick me" sign on Johnny's back, and in Johnny Bravo Meets Farah Fawcett, where he won't let Johnny enter Suzy's party.

    • In The Day the Earth Didn't Move Very Much, during the hotel scene, in the lobby you can see the same long-haired cook that appeared earlier in the restaurant scenes (now wearing a suit), and a girl who looks exactly like Suzy's teacher, Miss Babe (introduced in Super Duped), but having blond hair.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Johnny (to the shark): I only got two words for yo, mister: No!

    • Johnny: That's the whole story your majesty.
      Judge: Your honor.
      Johnny: Oh, you don't have to call me that.

    • Johnny: If you're a loser, don't say nothing.
      Johnny: I thought so.

    • (Johnny grabs a cooked turkey and eats it)
      Johnny: Check please! What? No charge? Why thank you very much!
      (Johnny runs out of the restaurant without paying)

    • Judge: What on Earth possessed you to do the things you did!?
      Johnny: Well, your honor, it all started yesterday morning. We had a power outage. Anyway, when I noticed the VCR blinking 12:00 over and over, I thought what any warm-blooded American would have thought, given the same situation; Looks like time's frozen for everybody, but me!

    • Toy: I'm wearing white pants.
      Johnny: So?
      Toy: It's after Labor Day. Barbie won't go out with me.

    • Shark: I'll be the swimming judge.
      Guy: Hey, you're not a shark are you?
      Shark: No, I'm Richard Nixon.

    • Beach Blanket Bravo

      The title of this segment is a reference to the 1965 beach party movie, Beach Blanket Bingo, directed by William Asher, and starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello.

    • Raggedy Angelo:

      The Raggedy Angelo toy seen in The Aisle of Mixed-Up Toys is a spoof on either Raggedy Ann, or her brother, Raggedy Andy. Raggedy Ann is a rag doll, fictional character appearing in children's books since 1918, and famous for having her own line of dolls. Raggedy Andy was later introduced in 1920, as her brother.

    • If you want a new arm, you're gonna have to get it from a Share Bear.

      A "Share Bear" is most likely a parody of the Care Bears, a set of characters created by American Greetings in 1981 for use on greeting cards, and from 1983, plush teddy bears.

    • G.I. Jeremy

      The G.I. Jeremy toy seen in The Aisle of Mixed-Up Toys is a spoof on the G.I. Joe, a line of military-themed articulated action figures produced by the toy company Hasbro.

    • There's a bomb on this bus; if you go over 55 miles per hour, it's gonna go off.

      The movie Johnny was watching at the beginning of The Aisle of Mixed-Up Toys was a parody of the 1995 film Speed, starring Keanu Reeves.

    • Johnny: I felt like I was in The Twilight Zone or something.

      The Twilight Zone was an American anthology television series depicting paranormal, futuristic, dystopian, or simply disturbing events, usually brought to closure with some sort of moral. The original series was created and produced by Rod Serling, and ran for five seasons onCBS from 1959 to 1964. It was followed by two revival attempts, between 1985-1989, and 2002-2003.

    • Eensy-weensy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot thingy:

      Johnny comments on one girl's bathing suit calling it a "Eensy-weensy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot thingy" which is a reference to the 1960 novelty song, "Itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini", written by Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss and first recorded by Brian Hyland. His version hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 8, 1960, and also made the top 10 in other countries, including #8 on the UK Singles Chart.

      Over the years the song has been used in various movies, ads (most notably as the jingle for the Yoplait Yogurt company, in 2006), as well as being parodied a number of times.
