Did You Know?


Nearly all the dialogue in first scene is taken verbatim from the David Bowie songs "TVC15", "Ashes to Ashes" and "Space Oddity". See more »


Ghost Pirate 1: [Watching Brock beat up the fake Ghost Pirate] Oh my God, he's gettin' his ass kicked! We gotta save him!
Ghost Pirate 2: Are you kiddin'? My sword's made of cardboard.
Pirate Captain: Enough!
Pirate Captain: [Everyone stops fighting] Get off that man before he kills the hole lot'o'ye.
Pirate Captain: [Holding Dean as a shield at gunpoint] I don't think he wants to see what his child is made of.

User Reviews

A Classic
22 May 2006 | by need4newsSee all my reviews

What would happen if the perfect cartoon were produced? It has been--by the Venture Bros. team.

Ghosts of the Sargasso pushes all the right culturally relevant buttons: Pop music, cartoon, science, mystery and just plain goofy references abound.

Where else could you find Bowie lyrics, hints of Scooby Doo, and Rainbow Brite tattoos in the same place? For the true sadist/fetishist, the obligatory urine and anal probing are included.

Like most great entertainment, this multi-layered onion reveals more with each viewing.
