We are ridiculous.


After placing my order for the awesome new Venture apparel, I have to ask: Who is the fellow modeling the hoodie?


Just wanted to say, the special exceeded all of my expectations.

Quick question:

As much as I loved you and Bill Hader as the voice of Professor Impossible, Stephen Colbert was a welcome return. Can we expect Mr. Colbert to continue to contribute his voice talents into Season 6?

I was also delighted to hear Toby Huss make his triumphant comeback as General Treister, and hope his voice acting will be used in the future, Treister or not!

Either way, I'll be eagerly and paitiently awaiting Season 6.

No plans for a Colbert (or Impossible) return in Season 6. This was kind of his swan song for the foreseeable future, and we thought it would be a neat treat to round him out with the man who first played him. Mr. Colbert is an incredibly busy fellow, and was kind enough to do us a solid for Impossible's last hurrah.

(I say that knowing full well that the minute some great Impossible story hits me, I'll be begging him to come back)

And we love Toby as much as you do. Thankfully, we came up with a totally new character for him to play in Season 6, and he'll also return as Scaramantula in a flashback.

I'm still not sure what's funnier: the captain singing "MMM" or the thought of Jackson belting it out in a recording booth. Either way, bravo: I've been walking around all day singing it like a pirate and feeling happy. This show is absolute magic.

Venture Bros. updates

Dear Sir,
Do you have any updates on the progress of season 6? or just about the show in general? Such as, are there any really cool SFX like in SPANAKOPITA planned for upcoming episodes. Do you have any updates on new voice talent? And is there any truth to the rumor that Season 6 will be the final season of The Venture Bros. Also who do you like in the NCAA Tournament?

Re: Venture Bros. updates

The progress of season 6 is that it is in progress. It has been a very challenging season with many many setbacks, so we're terribly behind schedule and pretty exhausted. The finished product is very cool, though. We've delivered one episode to the network, we're about to deliver the second, and we've received rough cuts of two more from our overseas studio. After a brief writing hiatus to focus on the Gargantua special's post-production, Doc and I have turned in our last two scripts and those are currently being designed and storyboarded.

No Spanikopita-style stop-motion digressions in these episodes...

We've actually had a lot of new voice talent this season: James Adomian, Clancy Brown, Misha Collins, Mark Gagliardi, Hal Lublin, Kate McKinnon, Cristin Milioti, Larry Murphy, Paul F. Tompkins, and, as of this week, Jeffrey Wright have all graced us with their voices.

Can't really say what the future holds after this season, except that we didn't write it to be the last season and we still have stories to tell that we're interested in telling and the network is interested in letting us tell. We're too focussed on finishing production to think about "nexts" and contracts and things like that, though, so it really hasn't come up. One day at a time and all that.

I can't tell you how much I hate basketball...

That's what I'm trying to figure out? What does White think Billy says when he replies;

"That's what I've been trying to tell you!
You gotta eat more fiber!!!"


I don't think he's mishearing what Billy's saying so much as thinking that Billy is being euphemistic when he says "I'm being kidnapped by Zeus." You'd have to ask Doc, though, he wrote that bit.

Hey Jackson Publick, How would I go about getting a few scripts from your past seasons? I'm a screenwriter based out in California and I'm not sure if I contact adult swim or if I can contact you directly for them. Thanks for the info if you give any :)

Gargantua 2 withdrawals....

Any news on the launch for the rest of season 6? Seriously though, your show is one of the greatest american animations on television right now. I chalk it up to the time it takes you guys to finish a season. It gives you all enough time to filter everything and give your best work. Thank you for 6 seasons of entertainment for misfit youth grown to misfit adults. :)

Is season 6 ever gonna air? Sad to say I'm loosing interest in the show cause it takes forever for the next season to come on.

Re: Venture season 6

if you stuck around for 5 seasons and the amount of time it took for all of those to come out.. its hard to believe you are losing interest now. There has always been gaps of like 3 years or more.

Have there been any recent developments in the Season 6? Such as a projected air-date?, ( maybe a ballpark time frame), Is there any truth to the rumor that Harry Shearer might be joining the cast of The Venture Bros? Do you have any statement on the internet rumor that Kevin Bacon is set to play Billy Quizboy in an upcoming live-action Venture Bros. movie? What about Disney buying Time-Warner? It's been so long since The Venture Bros fan-base has heard anything from you, is there anything you'd just like to comment on in general? Seriously though, the whole Harry Shearer thing at Fox begs the question: Are there any voice actors in the Venture Bros. fold that you find particularly difficult to work with? Do any of them have un-reasonable demands? Will you or any cast members be taking part in the annual Con season? or are you too busy to make that call at this time? Will there be a shirt-club type offer with the up-coming season? And Finally Have The Venture Bros. been cancelled? and you just don't have the Heart to break it to your legions of loyal and loving fans? Please answer any or all of the above questions, the fans are dying to get some word, any word on the status of their favorite show. Thank you for your time, and as always GO TEAM VENTURE!

You're trawling or trolling, Tim! I'm not gonna bite. We're making the show, all day, every day, and have not been cancelled. There'll be news and pictures and all kinds of fun stuff when we're ready to share. And the voice actors have all been a delight since the very beginning.

What does the acronym G.U.A.R.D.O stand for?

I have had several inquires about a Venture Bros. presence at SDCC 2015. Is there any information you can give regarding signings, panels, etc.?

No information because we won't be attending this year. The comparatively early timing of the convention this year and the demands of our brutal production just didn't jive this time around, unfortunately.

Instead, we hope to make a big splash at the New York Comic Con in October, which we were forced to skip last year. If you watched the epilogue to our Gargantua special, New York is really the more thematically appropriate venue for us to debut season 6. It's also a mere subway ride away for us, we'll be well-rested by then, and we'll have a ton of footage and no doubt more information to share.

Thank you Sir for getting back to me so quickly, and for that information on NYCC 2015 and it's read between the lines-ness!

Is it too soon to ask if there will be any Venture Bros. presence at Dragon*Con 2015? Your comments about using NYCC as the logical place to make a Venture Bros. splash foe Season 6 have caused a lot of speculation in the fan community that you might skip Dragon Con. this year due to your busy schedule. Can you comment on any D*C plans at this time?

I don't personally have plans to attend as of right now, but word on the street is that Doc and Urbaniak will be there. You'd have to confirm with someone more in-the-know than I.

Thank you sir! I will attempt to do so.

Fan Questions for NYCC 2015

Last year the readers of The Venture Home News were able to submit questions for you and Doc to answer at the VB Panel. Is there any chance we could do that again this year? And if so where and when should we submit them? Also I would appreciate any sort of update you can give on the upcoming season six. Just anything at all, that you can tell the readers, maybe something about the episode that was shown at SDCC. Thank you for your time.

Fans not able to attend Dragon*Con

Dear Sir,
Do you have any information, or news, or words of encouragement that you'd like to share with the thousands of Venture Bros. fans who are not able to attend D*C this weekend?

Re: Fans not able to attend Dragon*Con


Am a firm believer in giving in-person convention attendees a special and unique experience not available online.

That said, between Dragon Con and the upcoming NY Comic Con, I'm sure we'll start making some footage and news public in the relatively near future, and will undoubtedly be doing some press stuff.


I received this request today from a British freelance journalist on the VHN, I pm'd the man and told him I would forward the request up the chain of command.

Nelson Monteiro:I'm a freelance journalist for Noobist and I would like to interview the cast and crew of Venture Bros. Season 6, how would I go about doing that?

Your Servant Sir

Birthday Greetings!

Many Happy Returns Of The Day!
If anyone could have drawn that sword from the stone it would have been you.

Star Wars Comparison at NYCC 2015

So I just watched this Marvel Live thing; you and Doc were on at Comic Con, and you used Star Wars as the reference on how you'd like to give out spoilers. Doc shot down the idea that you were like Star Wars, but I just had to say I care about Venture brothers WAY more than Star Wars. And look at the facts:

Star Wars, Six movies, 12.5 hours, about 6 Hours of it is pretty great.

Venture Brothers, 5+ Seasons of show, almost 24 hours of show, and ALL of it is funny, special and great.

You've beaten Star Wars- just because you don't have the budget or global outreach doesn't mean you haven't already put out better work, that has been way more rewarding for the fans. So thanks.

That was slightly embarrassing. Can't wait for Season 6.

Re: Star Wars Comparison at NYCC 2015

Also, I suppose I should mention that I AM a huge Star Wars fan, but Venture has just been way better over time.

Season 6 Premiere Date

Has the premiere date for Season 6 really been moved forward to January 24 2016?
Thank you for your time.

Legitimate question

What is the name of the character at the end of the row at Boggle's Funeral? He has a radioactive symbol on his hat. Does he have a name?
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Tim jr. just wanted me to let you know that The Year Without A Santa Claus is his favorite of the Rankin Bass specials. So he really got a kick out of The Misers!
Merry Christmas!

A question from a Venture Home News reader: Will season 6 be available on itunes?

No clue, but I assume so. They always are...

Thank you for your prompt reply. Eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Season 6 shirt club on AstrobaseGo.

I had to blow the dust off the 'ol livejournal to say thank you for doing shirt club again this year! I was only able to grab a Hank Co shirt and the Gargantua 2 Hoodie last time - but I pledged to be ready for the next time. Pretty excited to be able to subscribe this year.

Take all the time you need to make the show. Its worth it.
