to:

* Why did Wide Wale want exclusive rights to arch Dr. Venture? ''To piss the Monarch off.'' Why? Because Wide Wale was once Dr. Chester Ong, who worked with his brother Doug... as in Douglas Ong aka Dr. Dugong, one of the heroes that the Monarch killed off in his upset of being able to arch Venture. It would be reasonable to assume that Wide Wale knows this and knows that by arching Venture exclusively, it would PO the Monarch off.

* When Captain Sunshine kisses Hank and tells him "You broke my heart, Hank, you broke my heart!" this may be a shoutout to the death of Fredo in TheGodfather. If so, it means that Captain Sunshine gave Hank the ''kiss of death'' and he now has a promise that he will be murdered by Captain Sunshine at some undetermined point in the future...

* The Blue Morpho worked with Jonas Venture and was called on to do work that was too dark for Doctor Venture. Given how openly psychotic Jonas was able to get away with, and in some cases was praised for, acting... then what kinds of things did the Blue Morpho get called on to do?

** Dean is a sensitive introvert who's generally nervous about interacting with the world, and is very aware that he's being mocked. Hank is a brash, slightly dim extrovert who has no idea how little he knows about the real world, and no idea that people are laughing at him. Dean is young Rusty as he really was, while Hank is more Rusty Venture, Boy Adventurer, as the adult Rusty views him after a lifetime of grief and failure. Of course, since this is Rusty, he flips it around. Dean, who he projects on, is now the Super-Scientist Boy Adventurer that Rusty wants to be, while Hank, who he resents, is the jaded and cynical Anti-Adventurer that Rusty is.

* When Think Tank came to visit Doctor Venture during Season 6 and challenge him to a game of chess, he seemed completely surprised that our good Rusty was not much for the intellectual game of chess. The Fridge sets in here when you realize he may have been waiting for a chance to challenge his brother, JJ, whom may have been more than happy to play him, and simply been unaware he'd recently perished in Gargantua II.

* I rewatched season 2 of ''The Venture Bros.'' recently in preparation for buying season 3, and during the episode where Rusty gets Dean a [[InsistentTerminology speed suit]], I realised that Hank was Rusty's UnFavorite, backed up by a later scene in the car where Rusty praised Dean and chastised Hank in the same breath. Later, it struck me that this explains ''everything'' about Hank's character - his headstrong and assertive nature is him trying to [[WellDoneSonGuy impress his dad]]. He latches onto Brock and everything Brock does because Brock pays attention to him like a real dad. He teases and belittles his brother because he's secretly jealous of him. It's present without being {{Anvilicious}}, it adds some HiddenDepths without seeming out of character at all, it makes a character I formally viewed as the most cartoony of all the characters (even more so than Dean) into a real person, and it ties in perfectly with the overall theme of failure. God, [[SoCoolItsAwesome I love this show.]] - @/{{randomfanboy}}

* In Season 5 the Monarch finds a photo of him playing with Rusty as a child and is naturally confused. The events of season 6 make this make a lot more sense. [[spoiler: His father was the Blue Morpho and friends with Jonas Venture.]]

to:

* The death of Jonas Venture was implied to be [[spoiler: at Kano's hands in order to stop him using the Orb. Years later, we'd discover the Orb didn't work and hadn't since years earlier than that. That means, his death was completely unnecessary.]]

* The brothers' personalities are reflected in their outfits in the early seasons. Hank dresses like [[ScoobyDoo Freddie Jones]] with {{Aquaman}} pajamas -- he JumpedAtTheCall and was born for the life of an adventurer. In contrast, Dean's dressed as SpiderMan in his pajamas and Peter Parker in his regular clothes -- he never asked for this life but rolls with it as best he can, often pining for a normal life.
