The Venture Bros.

The Venture Bros.
The Venture Bros. series is a take-off of Johnny Quest and the Hardy Boys. Hank and Dean Venture, with their father Doctor Venture and faithful bodyguard Brock Samson, go on wild adventures facing megalomaniacs, zombies and suspicious ninjas - all for the glory of adventure! Or something like that. Hank and Dean Venture are relatively identical twins who live for the thrill of adventure. Their dated vocabulary and high-pitched voices are intentionally annoying, especially to their father, Doctor Venture, a boy genius turned mediocre scientist who hates everything about his life. In the midst of this conflict is Brock Samson, a man capable of swift, neck-breaking action. Preferring to resort to his brawn instead of his brain, Brock is simple but effective, and does a better job at taking care of the kids than Doctor Venture, as long as they leave his treasured Dodge Charger alone. Voiced by: Christopher McCulloch as Hank Venture; Michael Sinterniklaas as Dean Venture; James Urbaniak as Dr. Venture; and Patrick Warburton as Brock Sampson.
