Mantis-Eye Presents: Ask Jackson & Doc Stuff

Mantis-Eye Presents: Ask Jackson & Doc Stuff
During NYCC I'll hopefully have a chance to talk to Jackson and Doc and I want you guys to participate! Much like Adult Swim, but probably with a higher chance of success, you can post your potential questions for Jackson and/or Doc here in the comments. No question is too crazy or too off-topic, so feel free to ask pretty much anything, even if it's not Venture Bros. related. I will be screening these, of course, but as long as you're not racist or something it will probably be okay. Note that you also should try to stay away from questions about the future of characters or plots in upcoming episodes since they don't answer those sorts of questions. If you're shy you can also email mantiseye.experiment@gmail.com with your question(s).

And if you're also attending don't forget the Venture Bros.-related convention schedule and that you can also score a sweet Mantis-Eye Experiment button.
My question is this:

Will my question about season 5 be answered in season 5?

I'll just put the same one I did for the Adult Swim thing:

"If the Season 4 finale would have been 22 minutes, what would it have been like? What would have been cut? Would we still get the Pulpy greatness at the end?"

Nope, ask as many as you want. I may not get to them all, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Jackson recently said that he and Doc were writing some amazing stuff. What do they feel is really driving this great writing and collectively what has kept the show so strong in terms of quality, humor, and characterization for roughly 7 years now?

Hey Doc and Jackson will you make a Kim episode and kill her off so people will quit talking about her? But I suppose that would only make it worse (See 24). I retract my question.

Jonas Venture, Jr. isn't married so strictly speaking he doesn't have In-laws. Dr. Girlfriend has never mentioned her parents so they're either dead or comfortable with her trying to take over the world/kill Rusty Venture.

Beside the silly Kim question, I came up with a few at work today

1 When The Venture Bros. ends, what sort of project would you like next.
2 I ,for one, would love to see the original Team Venture in their prime. Is there any intrest in a Rusty Venture animation/comic something?
3 What has been the strangest fan encounter? any unexpected celebrity fans?
4 For Doc- Have you been able to see "The Gross Clinic" since its restoration and any thought on Eakins
5 Who would you cast in a Venture Bros. film?

I want to know why the plot twist of having Rusty Venture join the League of Calamitous Intent was abandoned. It seemed such a good fit for the character and made for a grand opportunity to explore other avenues and would allow for so much more material.

For those still reading this I did eventually get to talk to them, though on Monday afternoon after the convention was over. I posted some stuff about it on tumblr: http://mantiseye.tumblr.com/post/11613635548/heres-a-fun-behind-the-scenes-in-the-adventures

I have no idea when I'll get the interview up, but hopefully within a week or so.

Do we know where the Venture compound is supposed to be located? They always have the prettiest landscapes.
  • 2
Nov. 27, 2011, 5:58pm
I think its located in southern Colorado/ Northern New Mezico-ish. Based upon the outlandish rocky mountains in the exterior back grounds of the Venture compound. Also, because Conjectural Technologies, is in a flat, high desert plateau region not far from the Venture compound. And in "The Doctor is Sin" (Eps. 2, Seas. 3) Rusty takes his hovercraft to (some where near the Mexican border) looking for cheap labor. And in "Orb" (Eps. 11, Seas. 3) The very vague Map-look map (you would not believe how many time's I tried the URL from the episode to see if something venture-relevant will come up on the web) See,s to be in the southwest. Thoughts, ideas?

I've thought entirely too much about the location of the Venture Compound as well. Using the same references you listed, I kinda assumed southeast California or southern Arizona (within 150 miles of Yuma). But considering The Monarch likes to be parked at Cremation Creek and that he wouldn't ever like to be very far away from Dr. Venture; I think the Venture Compound is in central Arizona, likely north of Flagstaff. That's just another educated guess...we may never know.

Total nerd alert here. For those of you who really are completely obsessed with this show, I need some help.
Does anyone have a good idea of the layout of the Venture compound? I've been working on a scale model in Sketchup8 and have been noticing some discrepancies in certain locations.
I know they did a concept overhaul, from season 1&2 to Season 3&4. The compound was very boxy and tall before. Now, and since seasons 3&4 the main building and corridor resembles the 1964 GM World's fair exhibit. (Which I like better, because the compound is sleeker, and more coherent in its design. Rather than being a big stalky splotch of windows and shapes.)
Example 1: The Venture bathroom seems to change its orientation. The doors to it have been: from the boy's room, Rusty's room, and the hall way. But its orientation changes from time to time. Example 2: The X-1 Hangar location seems to be lucid as well. There are 2 hangars, one near the venture home, and another out back of the compound near the airstrip.
I realize that it's just a show, and crazy to pick it apart. If anything, it can give a nod to the outrageous quality in the background artwork for this show. And for some of you, highlight the unique depth that goes into making every detail. I love this show violently, but hey, feel free to tell me: "hey guy, that's just a little crazy, so put the banana down pal." lol But, I'm just looking for a little input.

Yeah, 'discussion thread' is sort of nebulous when there aren't any episodes airing. I also need to think about how those things will be structured with the community section. I am thinking of having all comments appear in the community section, so whenever there's a new news item a new thread will appear in there and people can reply.

Still have ~8 months to figure it out though!

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!
