I think Dr. Venture may have a part there.

Didn't watch much of Venture Bros, but from what I gather it's the bastard child of Jonny Quest and Archie comics

Jonny Quest, yes, absolutely.  I don't see much Archie influence, personally.

Nope.  I don't see sweater vests and immediately think "Archie", but if it works for you, go wild!  :)

Doesn't Johnny Quest exist in the same universe as the Venture Bros., isn't their an episode where we see Johnny older and kinda crazy

Yes, they also meet Race. But ever since that, they never used the real character names. Jonny became "Action Johnny," Race became "Red" and Dr. Zin became "Dr. Z." No explanation has been given for it that I know of.

I thought so, too, but VB and JQ are owned by the same company. It's how they got those appearances in the first place.

Maybe they didn't want that much of a reference because Venture Bros is an Adult Show while Jonny Quest is for kids

:icontoontorment:
ToonTorment Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013
Maybe. That, or it was out of respect for the creators. I never quite considered Jonny Quest for kids, though. It was a prime time show, for one. But I understand that toons in the 60s did things that would never get by BS&P today and make oversensitive parents or "advocates" looking for money/publicity scream (i.e., 10 year-old boys with real, non-laser guns using them alongside the adults to fend off a crocodile attack). The 80s and 90s reboots were definitely more for kids, though.

A really good JQ parody that's somewhere in between was Toby Danger, which was supposed to be a stand-alone short, but was cut down into a segment of Freakazoid!. And it featured 3 out of 4 of the principal voice actors from the 80s revival of JQ.

Here's what happened: Jonny Quest has been in a state of almost being revived and yet not quite for about... a decade. This started while season 2 of The Venture Bros was being made. Cartoon Network was worried that using the same characters in a straight adaptation and a parody would damage the Jonny Quest brand, so the Quest characters on Venture Bros were renamed. The revival fell through again, but the names sort of stuck.

Makes sense.  And I guess the revival fell through again during the making of Scooby Doo: Mystery, Inc, hence "Heart of Evil."

I actually considered including Toby in this piece, but then sanity prevailed and I realized that nine characters was enough.  :)

LOL Yay, for sanity prevailing!  It sure doesn't in the Venture Bros. universe! :XD:

At any rate, as of the Halloween special, Dean knows the truth, although finding that out contributed in part to Dean going through his own rebellious phase, he started resisting his father's urgings to go into Super-Science and started dressing in a black jumpsuit and generally acted in a way that lead ol' Uncle Hatred to worry that Dean was cutting himself.
