NYCC 08 Venture Brothers Panel: Clips, We Got Em

The Venture Brother's panel at the NY Comic Con was completely packed, and why not? The Astro-Base team was certainly the most articulate, entertaining group of creators I saw all week. Let's go to the video proof.

There's something magical about seeing a man do a cartoon's voice, live and in person. Especially when that man actually writes the show, and can ad-lib in character.

More clips from the panel (with classy graphics from Mantis-Eye's screencap gallery) after the jump...

Ask and ye shall receive; here's James Urbaniak answering a fan's request to do a pick-up line in Dr. Venture's voice. Vulgar hilarity (I call it "hilgarity") ensues.

Here's what happened when a fangirl asked the panel if Kim would be making an appearance in the third season. You know, Kim? Triana's friend who looks like a supervillian? Apparently you were not the only one who thought her 30 seconds of screentime were enough to warrant a major crush, and Doc Hammer is none too happy about it.

Don't act so surprised, DH. You wrote a scene in which Kim thinks Doctor Girlfriend is coming on to her. People are going to like that.

A fan asked why Brock couldn't simply break off the lock of the chastity belt keeping him from consummating his highly unusual relationship with Molotov Cocktease. Doc Hammer sets him straight and shuts him down. Sex is complicated. Cartoons fans need to hear this stuff.

Watch this post Venturers, it'll fill up with more bite sized morsels of Q&A goodness as the day goes on.

Thanks for putting these online. Are you going to upload a video of the entire panel eventually? There were some great moments that I'd love to see again.

I was thinking I'd upload a few more of my favorite clips over the next few days, if I don't get scooped by someone else on YouTube. Anything you particularly want to see?

These are awesome and well edited. I uploaded an unedited version of last years panel on youtube, and i recorded this year with two separate cameras from the second row, but I'm having lots of tech issues and I don't think it'll be worth the effort if You already have everything up. I think I'll just put my candid videos with all the guys outside smoking and at the autograph tables.

Oh wow, that was fast! I've been scouring youtube for material from this panel. Could you post James Urbaniak's profane yet simple pick up line as Doc Venture?

Saya said...

... or Doc Hammer asking Michael Sinterniklaas for a teary-eyed hand-job?

Well here's the pick up line, via my new livejournal icon lol

I'll be putting up the whole panel and some candid stuff in the next day or so.

AHR said...

Just put up the Urbaniak/Venture (where does one end and one begin?) pick-up line. Next will probably be the question about Brock and Molotov, because I liked Doc's answer so much.

Saya: I'm not sure if I captured the "Teary-Eyed Hand Job" part well enough to post, I certainly wouldn't want to sully any memories of that extremely special moment.

It is told that in medieval England, full lace wigsthere was a tradition to pile small buns in front of the marriage couple. full lace wigsThe pile was stacked high enough so that the bride and groom could barely see one another. If the bride and groom managed to share a kiss over the stack, lace wigsit was supposed to symbolize a lifetime of prosperity. However, during the reign of King Charles II, a French chef paid a visit to London and he observed the cake piling ritual. The chef found this ritual inconvenient and he decided that he would use short lengths of broom sticks to separate the layers.wedding invitations The cakes had to be prepared in advance and due to the lack or refrigeration, they had to be frosted in lard to stop them from drying out. Before the wedding ceremony, the lard was scraped from the cake, however, cheap wedding dressesin later years to improve the taste of the lard, sugar was added and the lard was left on the cake as a form of decorative icing. These cakes must have resembled the more familiar wedding cakes which we are used to seeing today.
