Bravo Dooby-Doo is the second and last segment of the third episode of the first season of Johnny Bravo.


Johnny Bravo gets help from the gang while looking for his missing aunt.


On a stormy night, Johnny Bravo's car breaks down. Just to his luck, The Mystery Machine drives up to Johnny. After flagging the gang down, he explains that he broke down on a trip to his Aunt Jebidisa's house.Johnny finally convinces the gang to drive him there by telling them her house is haunted, to which all of the teens exclaim "Jinkies!". The term confuses Johnny and becomes a running gag throughout the episode. Naturally, Johnny harasses Daphne while on the way there, which itself is also a running gag in the episode.

The scene then cuts to Johnny and the gang in Aunt Jebidisa's, where a threatening voice yells, "GEEEET OUUUUUT!" They all begin hunting for Johnny's Aunt; looking inside a grandfather clock, under the rug, and anywhere else your Aunt wouldn't be. This leads Scooby and Shaggy to find the trope inside a broom closet, only for it to disappear, leaving behind a flour-covered rake. This of course means, it's time to split up and look for clues. Johnny and Shaggy, the odd ones out, head to the kitchen where they again find the Ghostly Gardener who chases them, but not before Johnny fixes his hair. After the door gags and another Jinkies joke by Johnny.

The Ghostly Gardner is captured by a chandelier, It's revealed that Aunt Jebidisa attempted to scare off Johnny because she, like the rest of the population doesn't like Johnny. Apologetically, the gang ties Johnny to a tree.

Santa JB gives Scoob his present

Scooby in 'Twas the Night.

  • This is very much similar to The New Scooby-Doo Movies.
  • Scooby-Doo (voiced again by Hadley Kay) had a cameo in a later first season episode of Johnny Bravo, 'Twas the Night. In this episode, Adam West narrates the time Johnny had to fill in for Santa Claus, and delivered a present for Scooby, but instead of giving him Scooby Snacks, he gave him a coupon for speech therapy lessons (Scooby didn't care or take notice that it was really Johnny).
  • After this episode aired, Cartoon Network made various bumpers pairing Velma and Johnny.
  • Johnny also appears in a bumper for Scooby-Doo, where he's revealed to be a ghost chasing the gang.
  • B.J. Ward later became the official voice of Velma from 1998-2001, beginning with the first direct-to-video film, Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island.
  • This is the last time Casey Kasem voices Shaggy until 2003, because of vegan Kasem having issues with Shaggy appearing in a Burger King commercial.
  • This is the first time there have been explicit romantic innuendos between Fred and Daphne.
  • When Johnny and Shaggy are paired together in the 'split up', Johnny retorts, "Why do I have to get stuck with Jughead?" This is a reference to one of Scooby-Doo's original inspirations, Archie.

Cultural references

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs oddities

  • Despite being produced by Hanna-Barbera and even having direct involvement from Joseph Barbera, the canon is still questionable as it seems to be written as partially tongue-in-the-cheek as Fred and Daphne don't actually go around alluding to a romantic relationship at the camera (although Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island did begin to officially imply that there was an attraction, but not as obvious as it is here).

Aunt Jebidisa: Ooh, I was almost rid of him, and I would have done it, too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids.
