Let’s Remember The Great Cars Of The Venture Brothers

Image: The Venture Brothers (DVD) Cartoon NetworkThe Venture Brothers isn’t just one of my favorite animated shows, it’s one of my very favorite TV shows period. Adult Swim ended one of the longest-running shows in its line up this week after 81 episodes over 17 years. If you’ve never seen it (There’s no excuse, it’s been around for 17 years.
