The Venture Bros. & The Curse of the Haunted Problem
Original Air Date:August 5, 2018
Written by:Jackson Publick
The Venture headquarters is possessed! Or maybe it's just regular haunted. Or it could just be a computer glitch. Whatever it is, only Orpheus and his Order of the Triad can unlock the mystery.
Some of the backstory in this episode comes from:
Season 1, Episode 2: "Careers In Science"
The Problem Light (coincidentally along with Jonas Venture Sr.), was first introduced way back in the second episode when Doc, Brock and the boys went to Gargantua-1, a space station with a two person skeleton crew.
One of the crew members, Col. Manstrong, also tells the boys a story about Phantom Spaceman and how he opened the cargo bay doors on Gargantua-1 during movie night. The movie everyone was watching: Sharky's Machine.
Season 2, Episode 9: "Guess Who's Coming to State Dinner?"
Gargantua-1 subsequently crashes in the beginning of this episode. The crash site is the one JJ explores at the beginning of "Curse of the Haunted Problem".
Season 5, Episode 6: "Momma's Boys"
Hank revives his criminal alter-ego, Enrico Matassa, whose name translates (loosley) to "Hank Hank". In this episode Hank, Dermott, 21 and HELPeR rob a bank in order to get committed to Dunwich Asylum, which only holds the "criminally obsessive".
