Launched on Adult Swim in August 2004, The Venture Bros. is an inspired spoof of 1960s action cartoon shows such as “Jonny Quest.” Created by Jackson Publick III (King of the Hill, The Tick), this 30-minute animated series follows the bizarre misadventures of the Venture family, which includes world-renowned Dr. Venture, his dimwitted sons Hank and Dean as well as Brock Samson, their bodyguard assigned by the government to keep an eye on the family who was then promptly forgotten by the Feds.
The Venture Bros. continues to be one of the most popular shows on Adult Swim. During the fourth season, it ranked as a Top 5 program for Adults 18-24, Men 18-24 and Men 18-34 in a rank of late-night programs on both cable and broadcast networks. The Venture Bros. was also the #1 show in its time period among Adults 18-24, Men 18-24, Adults 18-34, and Men 18-34, in a rank of all non-sport programs on both cable and broadcast networks. Furthermore, 4.4 million Adults 18-49 watched Season 4 Volume 2 during its first six weeks on Adult Swim according to Nielsen Media Research.
Adult Swim will support The Venture Bros. Season 4 Blu-ray and The Venture Bros. Season 4 Volume 2 with a comprehensive marketing campaign including 30-second on-air spots on Adult Swim and online ads on various entertainment sites. The DVD will be produced and marketed by Cartoon Network Enterprises and distributed by Warner Home Video. In addition to DVDs, fans of the show can enjoy apparel, action figures, bobble heads, and phone covers and accessories based on the show.
