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.

His first appearance is even accompanied by text at the bottom of the screen that says: "celebrity voice impersonated". Allegedly, they tried to get Music/DavidBowie himself but he didn't get back to them before the episode aired.

** 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.]]

* RealityEnsues:
** The entire show proves just how messed up boy adventurers like Rusty would be later in life. After going to a therapy group for other grown up boy adventurers, he realizes that he's the most well adjusted one there.
** Rusty failed to sell plans for a laser sword he built to the army in the past. Not only does just one cost millions there's no practical use for a sword.
