Venture Brothers creator Jackson Publick has released a Season 3 “cast photo” featuring many of the characters that will appear in the first 2/3 of Season 3’s episodes. Just looking at all of the odd characters makes me excited for Season 3. Can’t wait.

As a bonus, if you can answer the following 2 questions correctly, you could win a prize. Just leave a comment on the Publick Nuisance – Holiday Gift Bonanza!!! post.

1. Which of these characters, if any, does this room actually belong to?
2. There are three famous, non-fictional people in the picture. Name all three.


Christmas has come and gone and I hope everyone had a merry one, but it’s still not too late for a little Christmas nugget of fun.

Every year AstroBase Go (Jackson Publick & Doc Hammer) produce a Venture Brothers related Christmas MP3. They’re always great and this year’s song is no exception. Visit to hear the Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend sing “Fairytale of New York” and check out the archived links of previous years tunes. The 2006 “Venture Aid” is still the best.

Gary Coleman Show DVD Menu Based on the 1982 television movie, The Kid with the Broken Halo, the 1982 cartoon The Gary Coleman Show followed the adventures of Andy LeBeau. Another oddly entertaining show from Hanna-Barbera, I had not seen it since my childhood until Cartoon Network began airing it one year at around 4:30 a.m.

The menu on this set was a quickie using the image from the closing credits. This is a technique I’ve used on many Hanna-Barbera sets.

Andy – because of constant blunders in angel training – is placed on probation in Heaven and is sent to Earth to solve people’s problems. Episodes centered on his assignments, mistakes he made along the way, and attempts by the villain Hornswoggle to foil Andy’s efforts. Angelica the angel helps Andy work through and correct his mistakes and ultimately foil Hornswoggle.
