The Venture Compound
1st appearance: The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay


Venture Industries is the privately held company founded by Jonas Venture Sr. and passed along to his son Thaddeus. Years later half went to Jonas. Built on the marvelous inventions Jonas Sr. created, the company thrived before Thaddeus S. Venture took over. It seems like Thaddeus is training Dean Venture in science so that someday he will take over the reins of the company.

[edit] Venture Compound

The home of Venture Industries, the Venture Compound is on a massive piece of land that includes a full-service runway for aircraft of all types, numerous hangars for storage, living quarters for the Ventures, training facilities, spacious grounds, moving walkways, and, of course, Dr. Venture's lab, to name a few features. What used to be the Advanced Arachnid Research Lab was renovated as a rental property, which now houses Dr. Byron Orpheus and The Alchemist. In The Doctor is Sin, Dr. Henry Killinger helped breathe life into the long-defunct industrial center of the Compound as part of his arrangement with Dr. Venture, though only for a few glorious hours.

[edit] Fun Facts

  • The Venture Compound main building, especially as it is shown in season 3, is a near-perfect replica of the General Motors Futurama pavilion from the 1964 New York World's Fair.[1] That same building is the one pictured at the end of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.
  • In the Season 2 episode I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills, the car Dr. Venture and Orpheus take has "Venture Motors" labelled on the side, indicating that Venture Industries once manufactured automobiles.
