I’m a die-hard The Venture Bros. fanboy. So when I got the word I’d be interviewing the dynamic duo of Hammer & Publick I knew this would be an interview of legend. They didn’t disappoint.
For the uninitiated, The Venture Bros. is one of the longest and I dare say best series on Adult Swim. The show follows the adventures of the Venture family. It’s a razor sharp riff on Johnny Quest and all manner of late 70’s spy exploits. The Family Venture is an eclectic clan comprised of the world-renowned Dr.Venture, a pill-popping, failed super scientist and father of the fraternal and not-so-bright twin brothers Hank and Dean. Joining them is thier tough-as-nails bodyguard Brock (Patrick Warburton, Seinfeld, The Tick) who was appointed by the government to protect the family. Together, they embark on a series of odd misadventures that take them around the globe as they fight off a hilariously bizarre rouges gallery of criminal masterminds, most notably Ventures arch nemisis. The Monarch.
Created and directed by Publick, and written and executive produced by Publick and Hammer the duo were supposed to be promoting the Season 6 Blu-Ray. They mentioned it in passing and then….well you saw for yourself. It quickly went off the rails! They were super enthusiastic selfie subjects as you can see. I don’t think I’ve had more fun at a roundtable and I thank Jackson & Doc for thier years of a beloved show of mine!
The Venture Bros. Season 6 is available everywhere!
