Title card for JBVO.

Status: Partially Found

JBVO: Your All Request Cartoon Show was a spin-off of Johnny Bravo that ran on Sundays for one season from February 9th, 2000, and according to a TV guide column in an Oregon newspaper, as late as August 26th, 2001.[1] It was a programming block hosted by Johnny, who would take in viewer requests on which cartoons to air, sometimes alongside some infrequent Cartoon Network guests like Chicken (from Cow & Chicken). They would be requested through write-ins to the show, phone calls, or through the Cartoon Network website. The requests could be one episode of any cartoon show from Cartoon Network's library, with the exception of half-hour shows (there was one instance [Episode 6] where a caller by the name of "Jennifer" requested an episode of Dragon Ball Z, and it was played at twice the speed through with Johnny only giving expositional commentary, to which he later apologized for).

Like The Moxy Show, it was another one of Cartoon Network's attempts at a hosted cartoon show and was close to having a "live" cartoon character, and it also ironically premiered shortly after The Moxy Show had ended (in fact, the day after reruns of said show's episodes ended). And like The Moxy Show, it was arguably unsuccessful, lasting a single season in episodes for a year, before cancellation. It's also received little in the way of resurfacing; nothing of it has been seen on the airwaves since and because the episodes may have only aired on their initial premiere (possibly, as they would have their own air date said and were properly "call-in" based like real talk shows) it can be presumed that they wouldn't have been on the air long enough for most people to record. Very little else of it exists online, besides a few episodes, segments, and promos.

In the United Kingdom and other countries, there was Toon FM, which also involved Johnny Bravo hosting a morning show. Assets from JBVO were re-used and Marc Silk, Johnny's UK voice actor, provided the character's voice in English. The block also starred Brak from Space Ghost as a co-host, along with occasional appearances from the Brakettes. Only a few promos and segments have been found. In late 2001, there was an event entitled Toon FM: Live from Tokyo. This included a cartoon Godzilla giving the weather, prizes to be won and karaoke sung by Johnny and Brak. All that is knowingly available from the event is a commercial for it.

Similarly, a spin-off of the spin-off itself would be Viva Las Bravo, aired as a summer programming block, in certain European variants of Cartoon Network in 2005 and 2006. Every day, Johnny would announce three cartoons for voting through either email or CartoonNetworkHQ.net to then be shown the next day for two hours, while he would also constantly appear in commercial breaks, either cracking jokes or answering emails and phone calls. Only a few promos have been found for this block.

On Marc Silk's website, a past role is listed as "Cartoon Network JBVO" and an acting reel[2] of his displays Johnny Bravo imagery, one of which says "The Big Bravo" and "JBVO Live" and the other featuring the Toon FM logo multiple times in the background. This confirms that Silk provided the voice of Johnny for all European blocks in English.
