Soul-Bot provides the voice of H.E.L.P.eR. on The Venture Bros.

Character History[]

Soul-Bot is Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick's mechanical companion. Soul-Bot appears in the end credits of many episodes as a 1950s sci-fi style humanoid robot with a heart on its chest.

According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, Soul-Bot was created to look after the children on Astrobase Go!, which was originally intended to be a futuristic school/space station orbiting the moon. Soul-Bot is powered by love, which it filters from the air and stores in its chest cavity.

Since Publick and Hammer have taken over the Astrobase, Soul-Bot was re-purposed into a therapist, painter's model for Doc Hammer, and occasional guitar player for duets. Soul-Bot is credited with H.E.L.P.eR.'s voice in the credits.

Actual History[]

Soul-Bot's voice work is actually Jackson Publick doing a robot impression, which is then processed through audio filters by Doc Hammer to make it sound more mechanical. Reportedly, after his first few appearances, H.E.L.P.eR.'s voice sounds have simply been reused over and over.

Trivia[]
