The press release follows:
For the Love of Johnny Bravo
The Cartoon Casanova Serves as Star of Boomerang’s Annual Valentine’s Day Marathon
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 Saturday, February 12, 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 special, “It’s Valentine Day, Johnny Bravo” at 8 p.m. (ET), which made its world premiere on Boomerang 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 former 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.”
