Chrono Cross and Venture Brothers
« on: March 15, 2010, 11:24:13 am »
I was playing Chrono Cross the other day and a very important question popped up in my head; why does the military keep sending Solt and Peppor to stop me when it's clear that they are rather incompetent. Then I remembered this exchange from an episode of the venture brothers:

Dr. Girlfriend: Why do you always insist on sending numbers 21 and 24?
Monarch: They have that rare combination of expendable and invincible that makes them perfect as minions.

Of course further thinking lead to me to realize that Solt and Peppor, and agents 21 and 24, are very similiar. This is likely a coincidence, seeing as I'm sure the "one short fat guy and one tall skinny guy" comedic duo existed long before both Chrono Cross or Venture brothers. Although this now has the effect of me imagining Solt and Peppor sounding like the guys from Venture brothers.

Best crossover ever?  Yes.

(Kidding.  Kind of.  I love both CC and Venture Brothers.)

I think it's important to note that Chrono Cross and Venture Bros. both have excellent music

I believe Abbott and Costello started this, but I may be wrong.

...And you may be right.
You know, I can't think of anything before that like this...
