Did You Know?

Trivia

Brock Samson's devotion to Led Zeppelin surfaces in several episodes. Some references are subtle - when driving the Charger, Brock almost always is listening to facsimile Led Zeppelin songs - while others are more overt, such as Hank rifling through Brock's collection of "Zep" cassette tapes, or Brock drawing the logo of the band's label instead of completing the essay portion of a written exam. He even has a (currently incomplete) tattoo of the label on his arm. See more »

Go Team Venture!
8 November 2004 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

This show is hilarious! The Venture Brothers, Hank and Dean, think, act, talk and live like they're in the 60's (though the show takes place in modern day.) They're the sons of Dr. Venture, a world renowned scientist who can't stand them. Dr. Venture pops pills like candy and reeks of failure and unrealized potential. Their family bodyguard, Brock Samson, is a former secret agent who responds to all possible crises with relentless brutality. Always The Monarch is always having evil plans on Dr. Venture instead of doing bigger plans like take over the world or something like that. I laugh at every single funny part in this show! The one thing I wonder about this show is why does Dr. Girlfriend have a man voice? Who knows? This show premiered in August 2004 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up, but the pilot episode premiered in February 2003.

User Rating: 9/10

BOTTOM LINE: GO TEAM VENTURE!
