| Creature Hunting is a Family Affair
When strange creatures pop up all over the globe, putting fear and hatred into the public and being exploitable by nefarious world-conquering wannabes, you call the Saturdays!

Created by comic book writer/artist Jay Stephens and currently airing on the Cartoon Network, "The Secret Saturdays" details the adventurers of a family of troubleshooters, including patriarch scientist Solomon "Doc" Saturday (Phil Morris of "Seinfeld"), his sexy, passionate wife Drew (Nicole Sullivan of "The King of Queens") and their wise-cracking but gifted son Zack (Sam Lerner) who has the ability to control the creatures, specifically called cryptids.

Three of the creatures are part of the clan: Fitzkerton (Diedrich Bader of "The Drew Carey Show"), a goofy cat/monkey hybrid, Komodo (Fred Tatasciore), a snarling dog-like lizard who can make itself invisible and Zon (Tatasciore again), a pterodactyl-like bird.

Together (with some allies, if need be) the Saturdays must protect cryptids from not only humanity (and vice versa), but also fight the ghastly, campy and self-loving V.V. Argost (Corey Burton), a cryptid hunter who has his own TV show (Weird World?!) and hopes to control cryptids for world conquest.

Shamelessly borrowing strands from the "Indiana Jones" films, "Jonny Quest" and the Fantastic Four, "Saturdays" is a solid animated series that has an interesting element rarely approached in animated television: an interracial marriage between the two leads, having a biracial kid. No one bats an eye. Holy Barack Obama, Batman! Catch "The Secret Saturdays", if you like high-adventure and campy fun.
