The secret files of the Ventureverse

They are available wherever fine video disks are sold. But most especially at Williams Street and Amazon, where I hope your orders will drive our sales rank to at least something above Jillian Michaels' "30 Day Shred."

The Blu-Ray edition includes a bonus disk featuring The Venture Bros. Soundtrack by JG Thirlwell. The soundtrack album can be purchased and downloaded digitally on its own in a number of places, but the only place you can buy the actual, physical CD separately right now is here. They also have a special, limited edition (and slightly abridged) vinyl release available.


Jeez, a lot has happened since I last posted. Which is pretty much why I haven't posted. Much happening equals much busy--busy making The Venture Bros. for you! First things first...


Or, rather, we've cleft it in twain. But, like the fabled Planarian worm of so many junior high school biology experiments, rather than dry up and die on your desk, each half of Season 4 has grown. Instead of producing 13 episodes in a row--which would have killed us and/or forced us to delay the premiere until January or February of 2010--we've decided to split the season into two halves of eight episodes each. So Season Four Volumes 1 & 2 (as I like to refer to them) will comprise a total of 16 episodes. Volume 1 will hit the airwaves this fall--October or November, I'm not sure yet. We're are just about to wrap up pre-production on those eight and will start getting them back from Korea next month. In the meantime, it's back to our laptops for me and Doc to write the eight scripts which will someday be known as The Venture Bros. Season Four Volume 2, which we'll begin producing this June with an eye towards a June, 2010 premiere.


We've done a few interviews lately. Here are a couple of them:

Animation World Magazine

ToyFare Magazine
(includes a bunch of super-old doodles I pulled out of a box in the bottom drawer of my desk. The print edition has many more of these)

Newsarama.com This was an on-camera interview we did in the magnificent Sky Box, high above the Jacob Javits Center during this year's New York Comic Con. I had an incredibly bad flu that day (Doc was fortunate enough to catch it from me several days later, when no cameras were there to capture it for super-forever internet posterity), but "the show must go on" and all that crap. Marvel, if you will, at the deep-socketed, soul-dead eyes of a man pumped so full of DayQuil he hardly has anything useful to say, and his writing partner just wants to talk about Bam-Bam. We die for you a little bit each day, Ventureroos! Now give us your money!

We Love You,

P.S. More updates coming soon. For now, here's a neat background painting.

You can't find it because it isn't there. Someone should have remembered to put it on there, and I should have remembered to check the proof disks more carefully when they sent them to me a couple of months ago. But we all dropped the ball on that one. I'm trying to find out if the network can put it up online or on iTunes or whatever as a free download or something. If that happens, you'll be the first to know. Assuming I'm the first to know...which I rarely am.

disappointing, but hey. that's just the way it is.

I won't lie. I seriously almost cried today watching the second part of The Family That... it's THAT good. you guys are killing it. please, keep up the good work.

Best bet would be to have someone upload it rather than ask the network. It'd be alot quicker and probably easier. Don't think the network would mind unless they think "Hey! We could use this to make more money!" which wouldn't surprise me.

Jackson, think big picture here!

When you and Doc finally decide to hang your hats up on this project after a long, fruitful run, you're going to have to do a complete box set of the series.

At that time, you include all the little extras you've been keeping around for the past umpteen years or so. That way, it gives fans incentive to buy the box set.

Problem solved. Hey, it works for George Lucas! :)

Yes. I'm disappointed and, frankly, I'm pissed that the extra footage that was cut for broadcast time had been left off the DVD/Blu-ray - especially when you had so thoughtfully pointed out the issue just before the episode originally televised and informed us, the fandom, the opportunity to view the "missing lead-in" via the adult-swim website. But I'll get over it and find a way to move forward with my incomplete life (ahum, Blu-ray Season 3, that is.)

PS You guy's rock! I'm happy to wait for Season 4 however long it takes.
