Jackson Talks About Venture Bros. Season 4.2 And The DVD

With a decent amount of confusion surrounding the announcement of Venture Bros. season 4.2's start date as well as the 4.1 DVD, I decided to go straight to the source to get some clarification on the whole thing. Super thanks to Jackson for taking some time to set the record straight and provide some useful info.

Mantis-Eye:

People are somewhat concerned about the Adult Swim 'Season 5' bump. Has the second half of season four been upgraded to season five?

Jackson Publick:

My guess is the bump was a little bit of a gaffe on the network's part, since we've always called these two halves of one season and we are in fact titling the DVD sets "Season 4 volumes 1 & 2." But it's a forgivable mistake. The time elapsed between half-seasons was much longer than we originally anticipated, after all. I mean...who are we kidding?

Mantis-Eye:

Speaking of the DVD, what extra stuff will it have?

Jackson Publick:

We were too heavily entrenched in production on the actual show to come up with any crazy extras. But there is commentary on every episode and there are deleted scenes from animatics. Again, pretty light, but the vol. 2 DVD will probably have a lot more because almost all of the back 8 episodes went over time. We cut three whole scenes from the finale alone.

Mantis-Eye:

The extended scene from "Family that Slays Together" was missing from the season three DVD...

Jackson Publick:

The "lost" prologue to the season 3 finale will be on there, as will the promo we cut for Comic Con last year.

Mantis-Eye:

So given all that, do you know why the set is two DVDs instead of one?

Jackson Publick:

I'm not sure exactly why they made volume 1 a two disk set -- that was news to me -- but I'm glad they did. I can only assume it was to assure the picture quality, since 8 episodes on one disk would have required quite a bit of compressing.

Mantis-Eye:

Anything else you'd like to add?

Jackson Publick:

I must cop to the fact that the episodes are not technically 100% uncensored. The audio is completely uncensored, but we decided against removing the black bars from the video in the two episodes we used them. So you won't get to see Dean's junk in the "Vetruvian Dean" portion of his prog-rock fantasy from "Perchance To Dean," and you won't get to see Brock's when he's naked and tied to a chair in "Blood of the Father, Heart of Steel" (which we had always intended to be too dark to be seen anyway, but it came back from Korea light enough that we had to censor it). Uncensoring those would have added nothing to the story or the comedy, and it would have been a huge pain in the ass to re-render those episodes completely just for 0.5 seconds of pud. I think people got enough of our penchant for full frontal nudity in the season 3 DVD anyway.

Awesome. That is all great information to hear. I'm still hoping Season 5 and 6 will be announced at ComiCon.

nice read to clarify things.

the censorship sucks just for continuity's sake, but I understand if the animation wasn't how you wanted it anyway (darker), but I always preferred blurring or even mosaic to black bars. As for dean's junk, thanks for sparing us of that. I don't wanna see it unless it's concerns Triana anyway... Even then I'm not so sure...

I'm glad to hear all of this. The second half of Season 4 sounds like it'll be awesome and the DVD should be pretty good as well.

So, if I bought an itunes season pass, will it start adding the new 4.2 episodes as I had anticipated?

My only hope is that the phrase "Little boys" can be stricken from every episode in the future. Sgt. Hatred is the worst character to deal with on an episode to episode basis. His small roles in episodes previous were all funny and just enough. The retired, insecure, alcoholic, pedophile, Army Sgt. is just boring.
The shows basis of the Johnny Quest series does require some homosexual jokes because anyone whos seen it knows what i mean.
Although there is no need to have Hatred ever appear again.

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

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!
