…why did i make this…

Just stumbled upon this commercial.

From the looks of it this was made to help promote The PowerPuff Girls Movie (as well as another movie made by Warner Bros. which also happened to be based on a beloved cartoon) while also including other Cartoon Network characters. Here we see Johnny Bravo trying to get dating advice from the PowerPuffs and Dexter. Kind of odd now that I think about it. The PPG I can sort of understand, but Dexter rarely ever leaves his lab. What would he know about dating?

After seeing several of these crossover promos I now have this headcannon that Johnny Bravo is kind of like a big brother to the PPGs since they’re often seen hanging out together. I just find that idea adorable.

Also keep an eye out during the scenes at the studio, there are a ton of references snuck into the background that Cartoon Network addicts are sure to recognize.

Also, who wants to take a guess at who Johnny got a date with?

My money is on Velma Dinkley.

Oh, it was TOTALLY Velma.

This is super cute though, gosh, thanks for sharing it!

hi so i just saw power rangers and i’m gonna talk about billy being autistic!

the first thing - the best thing - is that he says it. out loud. kinda infodumps about it actually.

he fits a couple of the Big Stereotypes, but let’s be real it’s very hard to write an autistic character who fits none. his two Big ones are good memory and not getting sarcasm.

the first Autism™ thing we see is attention to detail, closely followed by being attached to objects and being nonverbal when upset.

he happy claps! usually in sets of 3! yay happy stimming!

early on he shows touch aversion (’can you please stop touching me now’), and when he’s bonded with others he initiates contact

i’m sure there’s more that slipped by me (given that i’m an autism so that’s Normal™ to me) but these are the Big Ones and i love him

i get that they wanted to make the belle dress simple to allow more movement and how emma wanted it to be more modern without too many hoops, a corset, etc. but honestly if i were cast to play a character with an iconic dress from a beautiful historical time period i would be geeking out too much to even care about movement or freedom or any of that i’d have such mad respect for the costume designer and i’d be excited to be suffering in corsets and hoops lmao like how many people get to have fun and get paid to wear amazingly designed baroque ballgowns? not me that’s for sure but i’d do it in a heartbeat
