The Venture Bros. is an American animated television comedy series, broadcast on Cartoon Network's adult animation block, Adult Swim. It was created, written and directed by Christopher McCulloch (AKA Jackson Publick) and Doc (Eric) Hammer (Astro-Base GO!), who provide voices for most of the characters in the animated series.


Originally a parody of Johnny Quest, the current Dr. Venture, former child-star of cartoon fame is NOT his successful, brilliant, inspired, decisive, capable, strong, attractive and likeable father. The show follows him as his dysfunctional friends and family try to maintain their relevance in a world that outclassed them before they were five. Soundtrack work from JG Thirwell bolsters the production to James Bond level, and contextual music selection and contributions from Doc Hammer (And his band, Weep) are consistently hip, fresh, evocative and poignant.
