From the Manufacturer


Holy Toledo, They’re Back

The wait for The Venture Bros. Complete Season Five is over! Settle in and join Dr. Venture, Hank, Dean and Brock as they face challenges and adventures that send them off in fun and unpredictable new directions. Featuring some of the strongest, most diverse humor yet, Season Five of The Venture Bros. continues the cartoon series’ ongoing themes of failure and search for personal identity, balanced with a hefty dose of positivity and happiness.

Trivia

Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer are the only two writers for the hit series, an unusual occurrence in the TV world.

Even more unusual is that Publick and Hammer also direct and edit the show.

Animation of the show is a lengthy process, taking several months to get from pre-production to completion.

Patrick Warburton’s (Brock Samson) distinctive, deep voice has won him roles in many animated TV series and movies, including Family Guy, Scooby-Doo, The Emperor’s New Groove, Bee Movie and more.

Hank is based on well-known teenage boy characters, including Joe Hardy (the Hardy Boys), Fred Jones (Scooby-Doo) and Johnny Quest. His brother, Dean, is based on Frank Hardy and Peter Parker (Spiderman).

Cartoons for Grownups

  • From masterminds Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer
  • As seen on Adult Swim (the late-night block of Cartoon Network)
  • Eight episodes plus two specials, on two DVDs
  • Bonus material includes episode commentaries and deleted scenes
  • Also available on Blu-ray

Despite the limited number of episode this past season, Venture Bros. gets better and better. Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick have pulled out all the stops and delivered some story arcs that will make your head spin.

This is one show that I enjoy going back to the first season and watching in order. With each subsequent viewing, I'm finding something new. Now that so many peripheral characters from the prior seasons are thrust into the spotlight (St.Cloud for one), it's fun to go back and see how it all seems to fall into place.

OK, let's get this out of the way right away: The Venture Bros. is the best show on TV, and has been at least since season 2. If you are unfamiliar with the show, please do yourself a favor and start from season 1, because the backstory is so intricate that you would be totally lost starting here. Now, as to this season: it's fantastic! The only negative is that there are so few episodes (only 8 regular-season episodes plus two specials, of which one, the "Shallow Gravy" special, is fairly forgettable). But that said, the quality of the writing is top-notch, and many of the episodes rank up there with anything Doc and Jackson have ever done. I especially loved "What Color is Your Cleansuit?" (undoubtedly one of the most gloriously-whacked episodes of the entire series), "O.S.I. Love You" and "The Devil's Grip". Dean and Hank are definitely maturing in these episodes and are starting to become important characters instead of the window-dressing they often were in past seasons. Billy Quizboy and Pete White feature in multiple episodes, and the Blofeld-meets-Truman-Capote Augustus St. Cloud as Billy's nemesis is absolutely hilarious (he must be one of the silliest villains ever). I really wish that there were more episodes in this season, but if it's a choice between a smaller number of great episodes and a larger number of mediocre ones, I'll gladly take the former. We should be grateful that Doc and Jackson still care enough about this series to keep it going, and I hope they continue as long as possible. Also, I have to give a shout-out for the wonderful Hardy Boys/Tom Swift Jr.-inspired artwork on the DVD box, which is just brilliant!

I am a proud owner of all available VB BluRay's. The video & audio is fantastic. The audio is mixed very professionally; if you have a 5.1 or 7.1 system, you hear sounds the way we expect, flying between speakers! A+ all around. As far as the show, well, its the Venture Bros, enuff said!

This is one of my favorite tv shows and I waited anxiously for the 5th season, for years. When it finally did, I was worried that it wouldn't be able to live up to previous seasons - Turns out, its definitely a contender. I just hope we don't have to wait another 2 - 3 years for season 6 to come along.

While a long time coming and a bit shorter than previous seasons, The Venture Brothers Season 5 is no less packed with Venture-ific thrills and action befitting TV's coolest boy adventurers ever.
If you are new to the series then buy seasons 1 through 4 and watch them first because this season is rife with callouts that you will otherwise miss out on being delighted by.

Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer are comedy super-scientists. "The Venture Bros." remains one of the funniest, most f'ed up TV shows around, and one of the strongest offerings in [adult swim]'s history. More than just a wacky parody of old cartoons and toys, VB is rapid-fire in its comic delivery, and razor-sharp in its wit. There's certainly a great deal of fun in playing "spot the reference"; every episode is chock-full of nods both large and small to all manner of popular culture works, and somehow they manage to keep finding new avenues to explore and fit them all into to the bizarre and wonderful world they've created. Yet "The Venture Bros." is so much more than that. Since the first episode of the first season, JP & DH have been crafting a vast, complex, deep, and hilariously weird mythology around the Venture Clan. Season 5 picks up on number of storylines from last season: former Venture bodyguard and super-spy Brock Sampson is back with a newly rejuvenated OSI, Number 21 is now in charge of Sphinx (with only himself as a member), Hank and Dermott are pursuing fortune and fame in Shallow Gravy, and Dean is going goth up in the attic. The only problem with S5 is that it's not long enough. There are so many great characters in this show now and there's only so much time in 8 episodes to get to them all. There's also 2 special episodes -- the rather entertaining "A Very Venture Halloween" and the funny, goofy "Shallow Gravy: From the Ladle to the Grave" VH-1 style documentary. The best thing about "The Venture Bros" is its re-watch-ability -- and this show pretty much demands that you watch over and over, just to get a grip on the incredibly detailed storyline and catch all the jokes. I'm waiting with baited breath for Season 6!

Not as good as the earlier seasons but, still worth it. Still zany funny humor based on Johnny Quest. Looking forward to season six.

Season 5 is a fantastic season for veteran fans (in other words, don't start with this season). Some minor old characters come back in a big way and the Venture brothers are beginning to come into their own. Maybe not as exciting as some of the other seasons but that does not make it any less important.

Cartoon or not, the Venture Bros. is one of the best shows on television. If you have the time to actually sit down and watch from season 1 all the way through the series, I'd be surprised if you didn't get a kick out of it. Season 5 feels a little short personally but I'm not going to get greedy, I'm just happy it's still a show.
