Dragon Gone

Have just returned from Dragon Con. Many thanks to those of you who attended our panel and/or dressed up as our most obscure characters and/or stopped by our signing to offer praise and gifts of cookies and robot heads. It is always a sincere and profound pleasure to meet you guys and suck up your groovy kind of love.

For those of you who did not attend, here's a small peek at some of the clips from the Venture Bros. Halloween special we showed at the panel, albeit a non-moving, non-speaking peek with no music or sound effects:

Over at Titmouse East, we're just wrapping up pre-production on season 5 of The Venture Bros. We ship our last episode (which is actually the second half of what will be the premiere episode) to Korea this week. All other episodes have shipped, and all of the art staff (except for few stragglers in the Color department) have gone home. We're received take one rough cuts of the first two episodes from the overseas studio already and are expecting the third this week. Which means we're about to start post-production. The Halloween episode is obviously the first one we'll edit and deliver, since it has to make it's October airdate (the official date has yet to be determined). JG Thirlwell has already completed his genuinely spooky score (we drew some inspiration from the soundtrack to Klute when we first met about this episode a few months ago) and we're just waiting on some animation retakes from Korea before Doc works his magic on the titling and transitions and adds his special sauce to select sequences.

Doc's currently on a train back from Atlanta, but when he returns to the AstroBase, we'll no doubt start talking more earnestly about writing our planned long form special, to be produced some time between seasons 5 and 6. We've already had a lot of "big idea" discussions about season 6 as well, so I'm hoping we get to work on all of this stuff sooner rather than later and we don't make you people wait 2 years between seasons again. Though, having begun season 5 production in January (having written day and night for several months prior), and having had maybe half a dozen days off in all that time, I'm sorely overdue for a vacation.

Hopefully this relative downtime means I can post some more updates on here in the next month or so, as we get closer to the release of the Halloween special and Season 5. Plenty of sweet art to show you, but it must be carefully reviewed for spoiler content.

We Love You,


P.S. Also: thank you to all the adultswim folks who took good care of us while we were in town. And apologies to the ProV folks. I meant to come see your doubtlessly lovely table but had no idea where it was--nobody ever seems to think I might find a convention program or map handy when I come to these things.

oh my god
oh my goddd ahahaa

how kvlt of him.

Not sure if that is Brandon Lee or Glen Danzig...awesome either way.

I cannot wait, thanks for the post. I've gotten a few more friends hooked on the show this year. Great stuff!

So good to get some news. First I get to start watching a new season of Doctor Who. Now I find out I can expect a Venture Bros. Holloween Special. And here I was about to give up on TV... Thanks for the preview pics, they look awesome.

where can i find the revealed video that jackson mentioned on this post?

Dear Jackson,

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to come out and meet all of us, especially me, who traveled from Indiana just for the occasion. And truly meant what I said, the show is a work of art and I gladly let my 9 year old and 4 year old view the show because it is such, even though I do listen to the commentary and have heard remarks about parents who let their children watch the show :P. I hope you and Doc can find the strength to keep it going as long as you are able.

With love and utmost respect,

Stephanie Wells

P.S. A "Rusty Venture" is actually two guys sitting around, thinking up the most depraved sexual acts, all for the good of their fans.

Can't wait to see how the boys age, and new characters are somehow always welcome with you guys. Can't wait (actually can).

Let's All Smoking!! Thanks for coming to Atlanta; it was great speaking with you in the Hilton lobby the other night (sorry if I was gushing like a little fan girl-boy). My wife was so stoked that you got to see her Ms. Manyface costume; she ended up winning the costume contest at the Venture Brothers party. Thanks again for coming to Dragon*Con and entertaining the fans!

The Sunday Dragon Con panel was great!

Despite the part where I was dressed as a Green-Screen Invisible Man and Doc Hammer decided he needed to sit in my lap. Doubtlessly we will both be scarred for life.

Also enjoyed the James Urbaniak panel later that day.

There was a lot of good Venture Bros. cosplay at Dragon Con, and yet, what is seared into my retinas...

The bunch of Zardozes.

I want to see more episodes of Let's All Smoking!

Emerald City Comicon - guests


My name is George Demonakos and I am one of the organizers of the Emerald City Comicon. ECCC is a comic book and pop culture convention that takes place in Seattle. Last year we had our 10th anniversary. Our next show will be taking place March 1st – 3rd and we would love to have you and Doc out to the show to meet fans, sign autographs and do a panel as well. Last year we had some other voice actors(Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tara Strong, John DiMaggio, Robert Paulsen, Jess Harnell and Kevin Conroy), out for the first time and they were a huge hit and we got plenty of requests for you two.

Is this something you would be interested in? Are you able to please contact me at George@emeraldcitycomicon.com so that we can discuss this further? Thank you so much for your time!


Re: Emerald City Comicon - guests


Is that a "The Thing with Two Heads" costume in the third picture? I always thought about that movie with those characters. Was that a conscious reference from the beginning?

Thanks for the update!

Really looking forward to this season.

Wearing out my DVD set creating covert Venturoos with ventures into adventure with the Ventures.

I thoroughly enjoyed your panel this year!! Sadly I wasn't able to meet you guys at your signing because of the line, but I was the one who left you the (broken) vanilla bean scones. Hope you enjoyed them inspite of there crumbledness.
Thanks for the laughs!

P.S. I did have a present for you that I never got the chance to give you in person, so you will hopefully be getting it soonish through the USPS.

Ireland is an excellent vacation destination. One of the friendliest, most laid-back places I've ever visited. If you ever do get to take a real vacation, I highly recommend the Emerald Isle.
