Lyndon-Bee is a minor supervillain on The Venture Bros.
Character History[edit | edit source]
Lyndon-Bee is a supervillain who applied to join The Revenge Society, along with his wife, Lady-Hawk Johnson, in the Season 4 episode Bright Lights, Dean City. His super power is that he is human by night and a bee by day.
Lyndon-Bee is more intense and intimidating than the genial Lady-Hawk Johnson. While Lady-Hawk and Lyndon-Bee aided the Revenge Society at the end of Bright Lights, Dean City, the impractical nature of their superpowers did not earn them a permanent place on the team.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Lyndon-Bee is an obvious parody of Lyndon B. Johnson, President of the United States from 1963 to 1969. His line "You will not seek nor will I accept your escape" is a riff on a famous speech by Lyndon Johnson where he stated "I will not seek nor will I accept a nomination from my party for another term."
- The concept of a romantic couple who are tragically kept apart because each is cursed to take an animal form during different times of the day is lifted from the 1985 medieval fantasy film Ladyhawke.
- He and his wife, Lady-Hawk Johnson, are only able to maintain human form at the same time during an eclipse, another reference to the film Ladyhawke.
