We’ve reported before about the awesome Star Wars references in the Venture Bros. animated series on Adult Swim. However, our blogger friends over at io9.com take the idea even further and ponder the idea of how much more different The Clone Wars and Venture Bros. would be if their writing staffs switched shows!
What would happen if you turned the Lucasfilm writers loose on the Venture Bros., and let the Venture staff have a crack at The Clone Wars?
The main difference between these shows, says io9 writer Graeme McMillan, is that the Venture Bros. writers are deeply bitter whereas The Clone Wars‘ writers are, at their heart, very sincere.
So maybe if the Venture Bros. writers got to take a turn writing The Clone Wars, you’d immediately have more weird pop-culture humor. But you’d also get more investigation into the bitterness that’s just under the surface of the Star Wars universe — the fact that Anakin is a jerk who’s destined to become the scourge of the galaxy.
