The animated special The Venture Bros.: From The Ladle To The Grave – The Shallow Gravy Story is a 15-minute documentary-style parody of Behind the Music. The special follows the meteoric rise and the equally meteoric fall, and the decidedly un-meteor-like comeback of Shallow Gravy, a band featuring Hank Venture, Dermott Fictel and H.E.L.P.eR. robot.
From The Ladle To The Grave premieres Sunday, August 28 at midnight (ET, PT) on Adult Swim. The Venture Bros. is created and directed by Jackson Publick and written by Publick and Doc Hammer, both of whom also provide voices for the series. The Venture Bros. is being animated by Titmouse, Inc.
In an interview, Publick and Hammer discussed the animated special as well as Comic-Con, season five and how they record dialogue for the show.
