The Venture Brothers Season V trailer will make your life bright and motherf'cking cheery

I don't know how many Kawaiian Punch readers watch The Venture Brothers, but I imagine there's some pretty heavy overlap between this site's beautiful and brilliant readership and fans of one of the most fantastic shows on television.

For those uninitiated, it's pretty difficult to explain what The Venture Brothers is all about.  It began as a parody of the old Johnny Quest cartoon but rapidly evolved into an absurdist masterpiece of comedy that took swipes at G.I. Joe, He-Man, and almost anything else from the 1980s.

Sadly, It's been almost three years since the last episode of Venture Brothers Season IV aired, and since that time fans have been holding onto the vague hope that work on Season V was proceeding as planned.

This patience was rewarded yesterday evening when Adult Swim posted its Season V teaser reel from Comic Con, and by God is it glorious...

It doesn't look like there are many surprises in terms of plot points (yet) but that will probably change a few minutes into the first episode.

Henchman #21 finds a home in S.P.H.I.N.X., Seargent Hatred Vatred is still around as Dr. Venture's bodyguard, The Order of the Triad looks all triad-y, there's some more backstory with Jonas Venture Sr., and - unfortunately - more of the muderous moppets (or Tim-Tom at least).

If watching this trailer puts you in the mood to watch Season V right this minute, the good news is that you won't have to wait (too) much longer for the premiere. The Venture Bros. Blog reports that new episodes will start to air on Adult Swim on May 19.

Go Team Venture!
