Details On Venture Bros. Special: The Story of Shallow Gravy

Details On Venture Bros. Special: The Story of Shallow Gravy
Today's Adult Swim upfront has given word on what exactly the upcoming 11-minute Venture Bros. special (currently being animated entirely in-house at Titmouse) will be:


See the Venture Family as you’ve never seen them before: in a 15-minute documentary-style animated special. Follow the meteoric rise, the equally meteoric fall, and the decidedly un-meteor-like second coming of the most important band Hank Venture, Dermott Fitctel and H.E.L.P.eR. robot have ever been in: Shallow Gravy. If you’re hungry for rock, then open wide, because here comes a ladle of heavy metal fire and metaphoric meat drippings.

Thanks to fellow fan and friend of the site Kevin Fitzpatrick for letting me know about that. You can read more in his article on UGO.

Awesome. I'm surprised they released information on it. I thought they'd stay tight-lipped on the special until it came out.

This has potential, especially if they go Spinal Tap or Behind The Music with it. It probably shouldn't look too low production value though, because that defeats the whole glamorization thing they're always going for in rock and roll specials.

What happened to this..? Supposed to have aired tonight, but all I got was re-runs. Now I am seeing stuff that says the episode isn't coming out until August 28th. Is it just me or does this really reflect badly on Titmouse? Either way I am really really disappointed.

Adult Swim mis-reported the date initially. The special isn't even fully complete yet as we didn't get to see it at Comic-Con (only a short preview and a 3-minute Shallow Gravy video for "Jacket"). August 28th! Patience, my friend!

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!

I haven't seen a press release yet, but people on reddit say June 4, 2019 is when Season 7 is on bluray. https://www.reddit.com/r/venturebros/comments/b14aa2/june_4_2019/
