Boomerang Sends Johnny Bravo Marathon for Valentine's Day
Press Release from Boomerang
Johnny Bravo is a buff, girl-chasing mama's boy who can't seem to get a date in spite of his good looks and an even better hairdo. On Sunday, February 14th, the commercial-free Boomerang network presents the JOHNNY BRAVO ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MARATHON, showcasing Johnny Bravo's funniest dating disasters in an eight and a half-hour programming block beginning at 12 p.m. (ET). The marathon will culminate with the 30-minute animated special, It's Valentine Day, Johnny Bravo at 8 p.m. (ET), an encore of its Boomerang premiere in 2009.
In this episode, viewers learn that Valentine's Day is in fact Johnny Bravo's birthday, which might explain his penchant for amorous antics. He yet again strikes out with the ladies until Mama sets him up on a blind date with a real knock-out...literally. Meeting the girl of his dreams turns out to be a real nightmare during what should be the most romantic night of the year. Guest stars include former Saturday Night Live cast member Molly Shannon, "New Kids on the Block" heartthrob Joe McIntyre, the Brady Bunch's Maureen McCormick and teen idol Donny Osmond.
"Here at Boomerang, we thought we would offer an alternative to all the sappy romance of Valentine's Day," said Stacy Isenhower, senior vice president of programming and scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network. "Johnny Bravo gives us a chance to laugh at all the pitfalls of love."
Highlights of the marathon include the following episodes:
* "Luke Perry's Guide to Love" - 2 p.m. (ET) - Johnny unknowingly saves Luke Perry's life, who is in town to perform his one-man show, "Oh, Luke!" To repay the favor, the TV actor agrees to coach Johnny through one date via a hidden microphone in Johnny's ear.
* "Hip Hop Flop!" - 4 p.m. (ET) - A Hip Hop girl catches Johnny's eye, but the only way she'll look back is if Johnny gets all funky fresh. When the rap group "The Round Pound" comes to Aron City, Johnny gets a crash course on Hip Hop culture from the 300 pound rappers.
* "Intensive Care" - 5 p.m. (ET) - Johnny goes to the hospital to visit an ailing Suzy, only to find a beautiful nurse tending to her. The hospital is full of sick people, but Johnny has just what the nurse needs (or so he thinks), a heavy dose of Bravo.
* "To Helga and Back" - 6 p.m. (ET) - Johnny sends away for a mail-order perfect woman, but accidentally picks a Swedish woman named Helga instead. In an effort to ruin their "relationship", he takes her to a wrestling match.
