Venture Into Fandom With The Venture Bros.

New DVD release


Fans of Adult Swim's iconic animated series The Venture Bros. must believe good things come to those who wait. Due to the old-school animation--each frame is hand drawn--years can pass between seasons. Season One premiered in 2003; Season Two didn't arrive until 2006. Fans of the show know loyalty like few others.

But once you're in, you're in. The Venture Bros. is post-modern, dense with reference and allusion--an ultimate homage to '60s cartoon Jonny Quest. The show is about Dr. Venture, his idiot twin sons Dean and Hank and their bodyguard Brock Samson as they battle a host of neurotic villains. But don't rely on an explanation. Go become another loyal fan yourself.
