* AbortedArc:
** The penultimate episode of Season One ended with Dr. Girlfriend using hypnotic suggestion to make the Monarch believe that it was the Venture brothers who framed him for murder. While he did order a assassination on them it is quickly shown that he didn't really care about it and when he met Hank and Dean in the same episode he held no animosity towards them. Furthermore, in the Season Two opener the Monarch reveals that he knows that it was Phantom Limb who really framed him.
** There's a small storyline in Season Six where Venture Industries has to reveal a new invention at a science conference. Instead of using the invention his late brother had prepared, Dr. Venture decides to present mind control gas created by Billy Quizboy and Pete White. Not only is the gas a failure but it brings the company's stock down and causes controversy when it's leaked to the public. Neither science conference or the mind control gas is ever mentioned again.



** While Jonas Sr. seems like the perfect role model, flashbacks reveal him to be just about as bad as Rusty when it comes to parenting. He routinely torments Rusty with dangerous experiments and adventures. When he's not completely neglectful, he's bringing Rusty along to orgies and publicly humiliating him in front of his team.

'''''The Venture Brothers''''' (2003-present) is a cartoon series on Creator/AdultSwim[=/=]Creator/CartoonNetwork that focuses upon the lives and adventures of the Venture brothers (snarky Hank and brainy Dean) and their father, scientist/adventurer Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture (who has grown bitter and abusive towards his own children due to his failure to live up to the legacy of his super-scientist father Jonas Venture, making him a sort of pulp version of a FormerChildStar). They are followed by their government issued bodyguards: first Brock Samson, an ex-black ops agent (described by arch-enemy the Monarch as a [[HeroicComedicSociopath "Swedish murder machine"]]) and then Sergeant Hatred, a former super-villain/recovering pedophile who was drafted by the military to replace Brock when he quit the job.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:
** The first season employed differing styles of choppy and limited animation.
** In the first few seasons Dr. Venture's relationship with his father was more positive. While it was clear that his childhood adventures and living in his father's shadow was the source of Rusty's problems, Jonas Venture Sr. was seen to be caring and supportive. Rusty even had fond memories of his boy adventurer days. This is opposed to later seasons where Jonas and the rest of Team Venture are shown to be abusive and manipulative bullies who constantly traumatized Rusty by making him come along with them on their dangerous adventures.


Added DiffLines:

** Most of the cast when the Venture family moved to New York.

** The third season premier has the Guild's Council showing a video of the Monarch having sex with Doctor Girlfriend for the first time, only to replace the song (by TheSugarcubes) with generic music (Brock's training song from season one) because they couldn't afford the rights, much to the Monarch's annoyance.

** The Sovereign is so nice and polite in person that you tend to forget he's running the world's largest organization of costumed villains. Although considering that The Guild has rules and regulations binding them, and discourages killing (without prior escalation), they're not nearly as bad as the usual criminals. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the Sovereign actually is [[spoiler:a shapeshifter impersonating Music/DavidBowie.]]
