The Venture Bros
Thrilling action-packed adventure meets acute family dysfunction in the award-winning animated series The Venture Bros.
In this spoof of 1960s cartoons such as Jonny Quest and boys’ adventure novels like the Tom Swift and Hardy Boys series, the Venture brothers – Hank and Dean – travel around the world with their renowned scientist father, Doctor Venture. Fraternal twins Hank and Dean are total idiots who think, act and talk like they’re in the ’60s, even though they’re 21st-century teenagers. Doc Venture, who really can’t stand his dimwitted sons, pops “diet pills” like candy. Doc reeks of failure and unrealized potential, but he hopes his new invention will bring him the glory and respect he has long sought. Meanwhile the family bodyguard, Brock Sampson, is a former secret agent who responds to any and all crises with relentless, remorseless brutality.
When trouble erupts, whom are you going to call? Anyone but The Venture Bros.
