The new animated series, The Venture Brothers, debuts on Cartoon Network on Saturday, Aug. 7, at 11 p.m. The half-hour comedy is created by Jackson Publick, who wrote for The Tick animated and live-action series, and is produced by New York-based animation studio Noodlesoup Prods. on a 13-episodes order.
The Venture Brothers, which spoofs the 1960’s favorite Johnny Quest, features Hank and Dean, brothers who stumble into daily adventures. From encounters with ninjas to run-ins with mummies, the boys rely on their scientist father’s brain, the brute strength of their muscular, mullet-headed friend, Brock and a lot of dumb luck.
The pilot originally aired on Cartoon Network in February to strong ratings and was re-broadcast on July 27. The series premieres during the network’s poplar Adult Swim late night animation block.
