Giorgios is a minor character on The Venture Bros. He is the innkeeper of the remote Greek Island of Spanakos and the organizer of Spanakopita festival, a yearly event hosted by the people of Spanakos for Dr. Venture (though the latter does not know the festival is a complete fabrication entirely for his benefit.)

Character History

In 1968, Jacqueline Kennedy was to be wed Aristotle Onassis] in the Greek islands. Jonas Venture Sr. and Team Venture, along with many other celebrities, attended the wedding. Jonas left young Rusty Venture under the care of H.E.L.P.eR. aboard the X-2. 1968 had a harsh year for the people on the barren island of Spanakos, so Giorgios and several of the island's other residents robbed the yachts and boats of the wedding attendees, including the X-2. Among the things they stole was a trunk which the thieves thought was filled with money or valuables, but the trunk actually held Rusty acting out the Trojan Horse. When they discovered Rusty, they tried to contact Jonas but there was no answer. L. Ron had kidnapped Jacqueline Kennedy and necessitated the intervention of Team Venture and in the process disabled Team Venture's radio equipment.[1]

As the time past, Little Rusty began to despair, so the kidnappers passed the kidnapping as part of a local festival tradition called Spanakopita. Jonas and Team Venture came back and gave Giorgios and the other kidnappers a severe beating before leaving with Rusty. Giorgos lost his eye in the beating, and he vowed to make Venture pay. Strangely enough, twenty years later a now adult Rusty returned ready to celebrate the so-called festival. For the past twenty years, Rusty has returned every year, paying Giorgos a hefty sum of money every time and in an ironic way making Giorgos' vow come true.[1]

In the episode Spanakopita!, Giorgios officiates the usual games, though with an added new element. Augustus St. Cloud has joined as a contestant, mostly as a means of annoying his hated rival Billy Whalen, whom has tagged along with Venture for that year's Spanakopita festival. With the aid of his parkour-skilled servant Pei Wie and a generous amount of money, St. Cloud almost wins, but he is thwarted at the last minute by the efforts of Billy and Pete White. St. Cloud decides to buy the island and ban Team Venture due to spite. However, Giorgios sells him spanakopita the sandwich rather than Spanakos the island.
