Back on Shaq (Johnny Bravo)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
At a basketball game, Shaquille O'Neal discovers that Johnny Bravo brings him good luck. This holds until Shaq's showdown match with Seth Green.
Why It Doesn’t Go Back Enough
- To get the elephant in the room, it's mainly a filler episode of Johnny Bravo playing basketball with guest star Shaquille O'Neal when he thinks that Johnny is his good luck charm and then he gets signed in magazines - and nothing else.
- Speaking of which, the Shaquille O'Neal guest star was shoehorned in here and the buzzword puns the cheerleaders make are incredibly corny.
- It also insulted Hanna-Barbera, which is ironic considering that the first 3 seasons of the show were animated by that company. The insulting part was that the player Shaq and Johnny played against had Huckleberry Hound on his back but he became a generic sporty stereotype when he wasn't like that in his original show, much like the spectators themselves.
- Shaquille O'Neal is quite unlikeable, as he only plays with Johnny as he made him win rather than asking if he wanted to join - which is quite selfish. He also ditched Johnny near the end of the game.
- The cheerleaders are just your generic stereotypical people who cheer people on.
- Like many episodes of the fourth season, it lasts for 11 minutes - therefore, making it drag out.
- Overall, it was a very disappointing and insulting way to end this TV series. It just felt like watching a generic basketball game with Johnny Bravo rather than a full episode.
- Good animation and voice acting as always.
- Johnny Bravo himself is still a likable character as always.
- The show had a TV movie in 2011, Johnny Bravo Goes to Bollywood, which was a much better way to end the show.
