Ain’t It Cool gets name-checked in the final episode of The Venture Bros. Season Four Volume One set, which sees recovering pedophile Sgt. Hatred replace Brock as the boys’ guardian. Hank and Dean, now bereft of spare clone bodies, begin to literally outgrow their father and evolve their looks. A plan to clone Hitler is hatched, Captain Sunshine tries to make Hank his new Wonder Boy, Dean gets a speed suit and menaces himself, a rogue henchman captures Hank and Dean, Phantom Limb adopts a new name and goes after the Guild, some middle-aged boy adventurers must solve the murder of their therapist, Triana finds the portal in her bedroom, the Triad must save Orpheus’ wife from The Outrider, and Number 21 has his showdown with Brock Samson.
* Commentaries by writers Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer on all eight episodes.
* Comic Con Promo (3:36) The July 2009 clip that introduced geekdom to season four.
* “Lost” Open (2:15) Nothing to do with the Bad Robot series. 21 employs the Monarch’s danger room/holodeck-type thing just before the Venture compound is stormed.
* Deleted Scenes (12:47) Quite a few very short clips utilizing finished footage, finished voice tracks and not-animated storyboards. Lots of stuff with Rusty’s grown boy-adventurer support group.
