The Venture Bros. remains one of the most narratively dense half-hours in television (and definitely the one that takes the longest between seasons). Starting with this second Season 6 installment, Elle Collins is joined by Betty Felon, to share the workload of making this show make sense.
This week, Pete White and Billy Quizboy face an arch enemy of their own, Doc feels overwhelmed by his new responsibilities, and we meet the saddest supervillain. 'Maybe No Go' was directed by Jackson Publick and written by Doc Hammer.
I’ve been given a harrowing assignment by the Guild of Calamitous Intent. More truthfully, I was assigned by ComicsAlliance, and technically I volunteered. But calamity is likely to result, intentional or not, because my assignment is to recap the new season of The Venture Bros, one of the most densely packed half-hour shows in television history. So please stick with me, as I attempt to succinctly recount the events of the Season 6 premiere, “Hostile Makeover.”
Let’s go ahead and get two things out of the way immediately. First, while the fan art I’ve collected for you here is all great, it goes without saying (but I’m going to say it anyway) that this is only a small portion of all the incredible Venture Bros. fan art that’s floating around out there in the wild of the internet. So if I left some of your favorites out, it just means I didn’t come across it or had to leave it out for one reason or another.
Second, if you’re familiar at all with the Venture Bros. then you probably have a very good idea why some characters and a lot of the fan art that’s out there for this show couldn’t be featured. You know who and what I’m talking about. (Sorry, Molotov.) Honestly, even some of the tamer stuff I could include is already pushing it. Even though it honors many of the tropes and trappings of some our favorite kid-friendly cartoons and characters, the Venture Bros. has always been a show for the grown-ups that grew up on those kid-friendly cartoons. Or, you know, teenagers and young adults who are kinda familiar with them thanks to Cartoon Network.
We’ve waited a lifetime for The Venture Bros. to return for Season 6, and yesterday’s big trailer isn’t the only thing keeping us company before the January 31 premiere. Check out the first official clip from Season 6 premiere “Hostile Makeover,” as The Monarch returns to invade Rusty’s new corporate digs!
Sweet Sally of a time it’s taken to get here, The Venture Bros. Season 6 looks to be a tremendous makeover for the series, both in shifting location to New York City, upping Rusty’s financial credit, and tossing all manner of new superheroes and villains into the mix. See for yourself, in a balling new trailer for the January 31 premiere!
The Venture Bros. occupies a unique space in animation, actually allowing its characters to age and progress, even if the wait between seasons keeps us all aging significantly faster. Still, with Team Venture headed to New York for the Season 6 premiere, check out the updated designs in new photos from the Venture Bros.’ return!
The wait for an official premiere date on The Venture Bros. Season 6 has been almost as grueling as the wait between seasons itself, but it looks as if Rusty and co. at last have their return. Following initial reports of February, Adult Swim has officially set The Venture Bros. Season 6 for a late January bow.
Any fan of The Venture Bros. knows how torturous the wait in between seasons can be (there have only been five total since 2004), and while “All This and Gargantua-2” helped stoke the fires, at last Rusty, Dean, Hank and Brock have an official return. The Venture Bros. Season 6 will officially bow in February of 2016.
