Having just finished The Venture Brothers Season Two, I can say with no qualifications that for the two of you out there that haven't checked out The Venture Brothers, there's no time like the present (unless you have no time because of all the great comic books you're reading - grin!).
The Venture Brothers is a very funny cartoon series that has aired on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming for two seasons (both available on DVD, with the third season airing in June 2008). While The Venture Brothers are mostly an homage to the classic cartoon series Jonny Quest, the show parodies everything from the Fantastic Four to Scooby Do, and is full of all kinds of nudge, nudge, wink, winks that span the pop culture landscape (but not getting the references won't get in the way of your enjoyment of the show). There's funny villain names like Phantom Limb, Sgt. Hatred, The Guild of Calamitious Intent, Molotov Cocktease, and Dr. Girlfriend (a curvy female character with a deep man's voice who's the on and off love interest of Dr. Venture, The Monarch). Everything from the voice acting, the animation, the title sequences, and the music is spot on. My favorite episodes are the ones in which they send up the Fantastic Four, Scooby Do, and the two part season two closing episodes Showdown At Cremation Creek, which features David Bowie in cartoon form (voice impersonated).
