Trivia

H.E.L.P.eR. stands for "Humanoid Electric Lab Partner Robot." It's discussed during the audio commentary on The Venture Bros.: Tag-Sale: You're It! (2004) that Jackson Publick/Christopher McCulloch originally voiced the sounds for H.E.L.P.eR. Then Doc Hammer ran this through Soul-bot, a robot that they have at Astrobase Go! to give us H.E.L.P.eR. sounds. You can see Soul-bot at the end of every episode in the Astrobase Go! i.d. It was also discussed that they gave up making new sounds after a while and just use the same ones over and over. See more »

RELEASE THE BUTTERFLIES...okay, whose job was it to feed the butterflies.
24 July 2005 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

This is a favorite of mine on adult swim, but then there are only a few shows they make I don't care for. This one is sort of a Johnny Quest and other cartoon's of that era parody, but it isn't just a parody cartoon. It is also one of the few shows that adult swim makes that is not just a short fifteen minute show, but a full fledged half hour one so it usually has time to set up a hilarious plot each and every time. The characters are great as Dean and Hank Venture anchor the show and the father and his body guard Brock Sampson are definitely the super funny ones. Then there are the villains, most notably the Monarch, there has never been a character on film who was more evil and diabolical ever presented. Seriously, this show is great...if they aren't fighting the Monarch they are tackling the mystery's of the sea, going to arctic bases where a sort of fantastic four family lives, and having the occasional yard sale where even the arch enemies are welcome. For pure comedy entertainment look no further than the Venture Bros...GO TEAM VENTURE.
