Oh and, uh, happy April Fools Day I guess!
Jackson Publick: I have literally sixty, seventy pounds on you, but you know the martial arts. I think we both have a very strong will to live.
Doc Hammer: I’m fast. I know that you have a bad knee. I know too much about you, I would work that knee until--
Jackson Publick: But I know you have paper ribs.
As mentioned, this season all the animation fot the show is being done at Titmouse Inc., the same company that animates Metalocalypse (among other projects), and the new season premieres this Sunday night at midnight.
"My parents were into education. That was their bag, and they kept toys to a minimum so I could become more creative and look, hey! It worked! You know what I had a lot of? Those quirky, dinky, die-cast metal toys for TV shows that I’ve never seen. They’re British TV shows that were cancelled about 20 years before I got the toys, so I had no idea what these f*cking things were, and I had to make adventures—" -- Doc HammerAlright, so go read it. The final part will be out tomorrow.
Hammer: There are also characters I forgot we didn’t put on the show. We’ve been doing one for a solid year now, and I forget that nobody’s seen him, that he’s our character. I guess he would count as a new character, but to me it’s a guy who’s existed in the Venture-verse for over a year.
Publick: We usually write them that way. We almost never write characters who walk on and go, “OK, I’m a new guy you’ve never met before. I’m here to mess up your world.” We usually have new guys in and go, “Oh yeah, you’re so-and-so’s ex-husband. Or you’re that guy who’s in the background at the yard sale and now we know what your story is.”
Hammer:“You have a plug for a face and now you know why.”
"I saw the first one, because this is too huge for me to not to be aware of as a guy who makes a TV show. And then I watched the second one because I'm a completist, and because I just like dumb sh*t. They’re not good, but there’s no point for me to rally against it because they’re not for me, they’re for thirteen-year old girls and they do what they do well." -- Jackson (speaking about Twilight)There's also lots more there and I think two more parts to come. In case you missed it here's part one from last week and part two from yesterday.
UGO: I've also noticed you have a propensity to kill off those memorable characters as easily as you introduce them. Is there any character that you consider off-limits, that you would never kill off?
Doc: No, we would kill anybody. It's all fair game.
