THe answer to so much pee in Venture Brothers
Be sure to check out Jackson Publick's Livejournal for more insights into the show.
Oh yeah...about the pee jokes (since someone here asked and many have commented on the adultswim and toonzone boards, as well as others)...we don't know. We're not particularly pee obsessed men, Doc and I, though we both have famously tiny bladders and ingest vast amounts of coffee, soda, water and, in Doc's case, awful purple drinks of dubious flavoring. And we certainly didn't intend to have a running pee gag in every episode but I think we became self aware of just how many we had made somewhere toward the end of the season, I'll admit. But look at it this way: the average person pees what--? half a dozen times in a given day? Double that for me and Doc. The average Venture Bros. episode takes place over the course of something like 6-48 hours. Naturally, someone in the show is going to have to take a leak in that amount of time, right? I'll admit, some of the jokes we've made about nature's sterile yellow man-river have been a little...rank, but you figure out how to get Hank out of bed and onto the helipad of his hydrofoil at four in the morning! You figure out how to block the mind-bending mental waves of a Joy Can! You figure out how to defile a mummy completely so it won't come back to life! The jokes do stem from the moment and the story, I think, and are never (okay, rarely) gratuitous.
Yup. It's a signature. Go away if you're expecting something interesting here.
