Top 10 Bad TV Dads (page 6)
5. Dr. Rusty Venture (The Venture Bros.)
If you’ve never seen The Venture Bros on Adult Swim, we’d strongly recommend it– the show is essentially a grown-up spoof of Johnny Quest and super heroes, but with some well-placed Tarantino-style action and loads of daddy issues and personal failures. Rusty Venture is the super-scientist father of the titular Venture Bros, and he’s a shoe-in for this bad dads list… the tactless, manic depressive scientist is so egocentric he can never think of anyone but himself, he subjects his kids to frequent attacks by monsters, robots and all kinds of costumed crazies… and since he has a tendency of getting his boys killed in action, he even created a giant room of clone replacements for his death-prone sons!
