  • My favorite episode

    This "parody" episode was great. It is my favorite episode of the series. This is one of those special episodes that shows how good Johnny Bravo can be at making cultural parodies. The spoof was outstanding, the jokes were perfectly timed, and the little plot twist touches were the icing on the cake. This episodes were parodies Twilight Zone.

    The Man Who Cried Clown - Was a spoof of "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", and instead instead of a gremlin, the antagonist is a clown is sitting on an airplane's wing. Johnny Real Good - Johnny babysits a toddler, reference to Anthony in "It's a Good Life", with superpowers, and puts Johnny through torture.

    Little Talky Tabitha - Suzy's doll begins to talk weird things to johnny, a reference on "Living doll".

    If you are a fan of Twilight Zone, this episode is episode would be perfect for you.moreless

    • Captain Kirk:

      The man Johnny tries telling that there is a clown on the wing of the plane during the episode The Man Who Cried "Clown", who reacts by ejecting himself off the plane is a caricature of actor William Shatner (born March 22, 1931), best known for his portrayal of James T. Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise, in the science fiction television series Star Trek from 1966 to 1969.

      William Shatner also starred in the 1963 episode of The Twilight Zone called Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, which is parodied in this Johnny Bravo cartoon.
