Better Call Saul Gets Brilliant Johnny Bravo-Style Intro In New Video

Better Call Saul gets an animated introduction in the style of Johnny Bravo thanks to a fun fan-made video. Serving as a prequel to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul first aired on AMC in 2015. The show follows Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he slowly becomes the sleazy Saul Goodman, who eventually serves as Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman’s (Aaron Paul) attorney. Better Call Saul was a hit with audiences and critics alike and recently came to a conclusion with season 6, which aired earlier this year. In addition to Odenkirk, Better Call Saul stars Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Michael Mando, and Patrick Fabian, among others. Like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul featured very short episode introductions, but usually with an amusing twist, such as a Saul Goodman-themed matchstick box sitting in a urinal. Twitter user JabaToons, however, has imagined what a Better Call Saul introductory sequence would look like if it was in the style of Cartoon Network’s Johnny Bravo. Check out the fun video below:

Why Better Call Saul Was The Perfect Breaking Bad Spinoff

Better Call Saul, however, ended up being just as big of a hit as the original show. While Breaking Bad was more serious, Better Call Saul allowed Odenkirk’s comedy chops to really shine, making the show feel generally more lighthearted. Despite having a lighter tone, however, it featured Breaking Bad’s strong writing and deep character exploration, striking the perfect balance between giving fans more of what they loved from the original show while retaining its own unique identity and tone.

What’s more, Better Call Saul also further contextualized certain characters and events from Breaking Bad, ultimately making them stronger. Although featured relatively prominently in the original show, Mike was explored in even more depth in the spinoff with certain plotlines involving his relationship with his daughter-in-law and granddaughter. Better Call Saul also features a number of callbacks to the original show and even some surprising cameos. In the last season, for example, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman both return for short scenes, further connecting Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad. It would have been easy for Better Call Saul to overdo it with the callbacks and the cameos, but they’re ultimately used sparingly and to great effect.

It remains to be seen whether any additional Breaking Bad spinoffs will get the green light, but Better Call Saul co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould recently said that they have no plans at the moment to create more projects in that universe. Despite having a very high bar of quality to reach after the huge success of Breaking Bad, many even consider Better Call Saul to be better than its predecessor. Although Better Call Saul may be over now, it’s clear that the show will live on for many years to come, including in the form of fun, fan-made, Johnny Bravo-style animations.
