Oh, You Want More Venture Bros?

Well I got your Venture Bros. right here. Or specifically Jackson does. To summarize:
  1. Two more seasons of the show (I assume thirteen episodes per).
  2. Pre-production (hopefully) begins in June.
  3. Along with that a long-form (60 - 90 minutes) episode/special/movie/something is in the contract.
  4. An 11-minute short episode that will premiere sometime in the summer.
So what does this all mean? Well, details are slightly sketchy because it's too early to fully know everything but based on this info season five would start at earliest in the beginning of 2012, but more likely we are looking at spring 2012. The long-form episode (which could end up something like Robot Chicken's Star Wars specials) is probably very far off in the future and season six would likely come with a gap similar to the one between season three and four. This is all speculation of course, we'll just have to stay tuned!

Superjail! Returns In April



For those of you interested in other projects being worked on by Mr. Jackson Publick you should know that season two of Superjail! begins at midnight on April 3rd. Jackson is signed on as a consulting producer and will be lending his story editing and vocal talents to the new ten-episode season.

The show is of course quite different from The Venture Bros. in numerous ways, so it may not be for everyone, but it's certainly worth checking out for the insane, often psychedelic animation style and crazy storytelling and overall premise. Season one aired back in late 2008, so it's got some Venture-like gaps between the seasons as well. If you're unfamiliar with the series you can check out some clips on Adult Swim video or even buy season one on DVD for a measly $10. More to come!

Season Four DVD/Blu-Ray Almost Here

They're not out until the 22nd, but the season 4.2 DVD and complete season four Blu-Ray can be pre-ordered on Amazon for cheap at the moment. The Blu-Ray is $29.99 ($10 off) and the DVD is $14.99 ($5 off).

More Lovelace Storyboards

Missed out on the last bunch? Well you're in luck, because Venture Bros. storyboarder Douglas Lovelace has put up some more VB-related art for your eye holes and money pockets. As with the last batch these are all from season one and will be up for bid on eBay for the next 9+ days (as of this writing). Many thanks to @malpertuis for twittering about this.

Too Art For TV 5

Some of you may recall shows from the previous years, but for those who may not remember Too Art For TV is an art show with contributions from many animation industry veterans. The show is in New York City which of course means it always contains many contributors who also work on The Venture Bros. Among them the creator and curator of Too Art For TV, Liz Artinian who happens to be the Color Supervisor for Venture Bros. So if you're going to be in the New York area (specifically Williamsburg in Brooklyn) at some point between March 25th and April 23rd you should totally give it a look. Thanks to Kate for letting me know about this!

Adult Swim Launches Adult Swim App

For those of you with iPhones/iPads/iPods Touches you should know that you can grab the official Adult Swim app from iTunes. The app is basically a mobile version of their site, so it contains all the episodes, clips and info along with other handy stuff like game downloads and more.

Coverage From Toy Fair 2011

Action Figure Insider is hanging around at Toy Fair and taking a ton of pictures of everything, which includes the BifBangPow! stuff I mentioned in the previous update from this morning. Above and below you can see some more clear shots of some of the new figures. Apparently the Jonas Sr./Young Rusty set will be a SDCC exclusive, so con attendees have that to look forward to (though it's they're anything like last year's 24/21 exclusive set you'll still be able to buy them yourself). Click the pictures to see much larger, uncropped versions.

BifBangPow! Toy Fair 2011 Sneak Peek

Our friends over at BifBangPow! put up the promised sneak peek at what's to be shown at the upcoming Toy Fair 2011 in NYC (which starts today and runs until the 16th) and the Venture Bros. related results may surprise you! (Click for a bigger version.)

Along with expected figures like Billy and Molotov there's a Dr. Henry Killinger (with Magic Murder Bag proudly on display), Brock decked out in SPHINX gear (SPHINX!) and even Dr. Jonas Venture Sr. and young Rusty Venture. No word on how final these are or if there are any more to be revealed (Billy without Pete?!) but if you're around the Javits Center in Manhattan this week you can check them out at Toy Fair in booth 4813.

Update: Observant reader Pyroth also pointed out that you can read the cards (with minor difficulties) which list out Shore Leave, Jefferson Twilight, Pete White, The Alchemist and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch. So, expect to see those some time in the future, even if they aren't pictured here!

What's In JG Thirlwell's Basket?

I bet you'd like to know. That's a regular feature at Ameoba Music, which is a record shop with three locations in California: Hollywood, San Francisco and Berkeley. Thirlwell was recently at the SF store and participated in their "What's In My Bag?" feature which you can see here or watch the embedded video right here.

T-Shirt Russian Roulette

Not to be confused with Russian T-Shirt Roulette of course. Nonsek, makers and sellers of random t-shirts (called remixes) has recently partnered with Adult Swim such that you can purchase Adult Swim Remix shirts. Remixes include various Adult Swim TV shows including The Venture Bros., hence my reason for updating about it.

If you missed out on shirt club or don't like any of the shirts Adult Swim offers on their shop this might be your chance! You can end up with some bizarre logo combinations, or even just bizarre logos in general. One of them is the skull in Sgt. Hatred's logo with 'The Monarch' written on the helmet, which I'm not sure I understand. Shirts will run you $23 each.

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!
