It's an improvement over the original. An even better way to improve the original is to gather every copy and bulldoze them into the same dump they used for the E.T. cartridges.

Yes. Doc & Jackson are also the creators/directors of the show.

Poor 24. He never made it to Henchmen Cancun '08. I'm hoping they have some convoluted explanation showing that he didn't actually die next season, because 21 & 24 are my favorite characters.

Excellent use of the '21' tag. Not so sure about the '24' tag.

I can't listen to it. Not with 24 singing. I'll just think of them in happier times.

That right there was when The Venture Bros. first rose above mere greatness and achieved apotheosis. So awesome.

ROU_Xenophobe, I agree. I got a little misty there.

Are Doc and Jackson trying to ruin our Christmas by reminding us of the crime they committed? The awful, terrible crime?

Henchman 21: Here is where you are wrong, my friend. This woman has killed before.
Henchman 24: Allegedly.
Henchman 21: Okay, whatever. But she was a big girl. We are talking about a large, healthy woman of questionable stability.
Henchman 24: Oh, you are totally underestimating the never-say-die scrappiness of a survivor.
The Monarch: Hey, guess what? Nobody cares who would win in a crazy fantasy fist-fight between Anne Frank and Lizzie Borden!

Oh, it's a song written by children for henchmen. Finally this horrible tune makes some sense.

.. But I thought #24 was blown to bits at the end of Season 3?

(Unless The Monarch has a bunch of spares lying around, like there are for Hank and Dean.)

Awesome.

24 is totally not dead.

If you watch closely, there are an awful lot of henchmen getting decapitated by various means during the battle at the Venture compound. The last time we see 24, he has freed himself from the Monarch Mobile's inexplicably compelling seat belt and is standing outside the door when the car explodes. 24 was thrown clear by the force of the explosion, and the head we all thought was 24's is actually one of the several other henchmen heads that littered the battlefield.

I hope this plate of beans warmed your Christmas Eve, MeFi Team Venture!

Henchman 24: Give it up already. We can take a bus.
Henchman 21: Dude, Jet Boy and Jet Girl do not take buses.
Henchman 24: For the last time, we are not Jet Boy and Jet Girl, I don't care if I get to be Jet Boy. Those names suck.
Henchman 21: But it's a French song! Street cred with the indie crowd. The Damned do a cover of it.
Henchman 24: Then we should be The Damned! That is a way cooler name!

21 and 24 are the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of The Venture Bros. It's a miracle we didn't lose 'em long before this.
