Venture Bros. Season 5 to Air May 19th

It’s been over 2 years since Season 4 of Venture Bros. ended with “Operation P.R.O.M.” and left us all wondering what was next in store for Dean & Hank, as well as the now huge cast of other main and secondary character we’ve all grown to love. With Seasons 5 and 6 being greenlit, we’ve since had to wait patiently for the rare announcement of progress. (satiated with a single Halloween Special this past year to tide us over)

Looks like the long wait is going to be over this spring, as leaked on an Adult Swim Q&A teaser recently. According to the Venture Bros. Blog (now currently under maintenance. possibly due to the flood of eager fans crowding to test validity), the new season of Venture Bros. will begin airing May 19th. It also featured a slew of screenshots that give hints as to what’s in store for Season 5. I won’t give spoilers away, but some details hinted to in the last episode of Season 4 are pointed to.

Rejoice, VB fans. The wait will soon be over.

Famicom Dojo Podcast: Played to Death

Gaming can be deadly. Oh, we’re not preaching about violence in games becoming violence in real life. More about self-inflicted injury — like playing Starcraft in an internet cafe for 36 hours straight until your heart gives out. Sean and Vinnk discuss their narrow brushes with that big game pad in the sky by way of a variety of titles mobile, PC, and console.

“Tuff Tank” – Venture Bros & Cowboy Bebop Mashup

Our recent podcast about Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” made me think that my favorite 2 shows also have really incredible music. So I just tried reversing them. Venture Bros now has the “Tank!” theme from Bebop, edited slightly to it VB’s shorter intro. Cowboy Bebop has a chunk of the extended Venture Bros ending theme “Tuff” taken from the VB soundtrack released with the Season 3 Bluray.

Powet Alphabet: J is for Jonas Venture

J is for Jonas Venture

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

One of the things the Venture Brothers is known for is its diverse cast of characters. Just seeing the logo or mentioning it by name automatically brings images of Doc, Brock, Hank, Dean, The Monarch and his henchmen to mind. One of the characters who is often overlooked is Thaddeus “Rusty” Venture’s own father, Jonas.

Jonas is an obvious parody of Hanna Barbera’s Benton Quest (Johnny Quest’s father) and other “Adventurer” characters from the late 60’s and 70’s. Jonas’ voice (provided by voice actor Paul Boocock) and physical appearance are a definite nod to characters of that era. Unlike most Hanna Barbera action-dads, he is much colder towards his son and generally has a somewhat of a disregard for his feelings and general well being. If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll probably know all of this, but if not be warned, there are plenty of spoilers after the break.

Toy Fair 2011: BifBangPow! teases new Venture Bros. figures and more

BigBangPow! post on their blog some teaser images of upcoming products. It looks to be their two display cases at Toy Fair 2011. So I guess its more of a “Here’s what we have” as opposed to “Here’s a tiny sample to whet your appetite”. Anyway, the images include products for the Twilight Zone, Lost, The Venture Bros., Dexter, Dr. Who, and various one-off figures from various movie franchises like the Big Lebowski and Flash Gordon.

I’m particularly interested in the Venture Bros. and I’m seeing a lot of new product we haven’t seen before including.
Jonas Venture Sr.
Rusty Venture (as a kid)
Dr. Henry Killinger (and his magic murder bag)
Brock Sampson in Sphinx uniform
Molotov Cocktease
Billy Quiz Boy

Powet Alphabet: B is for Bleach

Bleach_cover_01I ain’t talking about no damn laundry soap. Bleach is a very popular anime and manga series created by Tite Kubo. It debuted in America is 2006 and is currently shown Saturday nights on Cartoon Network’s late night Adult Swim programming block. It can best be described as Ghostbusters and X-men meet Gi-Joe and Samurai Showdown. It enjoys a nice following, particularly amongst fansubbers and bittorrent pirates, almost becoming as iconic of an anime as Sailor Moon, Gundam, or Naruto. This article deals with the anime, although most of it is adopted from the manga. The series has been on hiatus since last November, and re-runs have been shown in its Saturday night time slot since then. New episodes are set to premiere August 28th.

First Look: New Robot Chicken action figures

Jazwares has been working on the new Robot Chicken line, but until now we have not seen any of the figures. Today, we got our first look today at one of the figures, the Robot Chicken himself (see above). The line will start by featuring a handful of easily recognizable characters to whet the appetites of fans. According to UGO, in addition to the Robot Chicken, the line will include Mad Scientist Frankensteined, the Candy Bear caught in a bear trap, the Humping Robot (packaged with his humpee washing machine), and the show’s ever-recognizable Nerd character (which will be available as an exclusive at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con). More pictures will be available in ToyFare #157 on sale later this month.
