Venture Bros. Cited In PTV Study

If you're a fan of animation but also have kids you may be aware of the Parents Television Council which essentially watches naughty TV programs and rates them as far as their kid-friendliness goes. Their most recent study (there's a PDF download on the right) delves into the world of animation, including some of our favorite series airing on Adult Swim such as The Venture Bros..

"Nielsen data told us where children ages 12-17 are watching animated programming on basic cable. PTC analysts followed the Nielsen data in order to see exactly what type of material kids are consuming. The findings of this report should be vexing for every parent. The term 'adult' not only describes the nature of the cartoon content itself; it also describes the products being marketed to kids," said PTC President Tim Winter.

Obviously parenting and not exposing your kids to whatever you deem unfit is important and the study can provide some valuable insight in that regard, it should be noted that well over half of the content explored by the study were shows airing on Adult Swim which accounted for the vast majority of the offensive content. 100% of all drug references and drug depictions, 95% of the sexual references, 85% of the explicit language and 65% of sexual depictions. So if you have kids and learn anything from the study it should be to not let them watch Adult Swim.

Well they do put that notice up at the start of the AS blocks, and the rating of each show as it airs, so that should be sufficient enough, right? Just like those "Do not climb the railing" signs at Niagara Falls seem to work just dandy.

My daughter curses like a sailor. She learned all the words from school. The only humorless dicks around here are the ones who think the word "dick" is somehow naughty. Beside the whole direction of Adult Swim is one of late-night programming with numerous parental warnings. If kids are still watching a show that airs at 11:30 or now 12:30 it's not adult swim's fault.

So....would it be safe to say the PTV didn't find it amusing at all since they're a bunch of humorless dicks?

I think you commented an hour before Adult Swim Central tweeted me, I just happened to check Twitter first on my phone. If only there was a Mantis-Eye app!

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/
