The Secret Saturdays is an American animated television series created by Canadian cartoonist Jay Stephens (creator of the Emmy-winning cartoon, Tutenstein) for Cartoon Network. There were several sneak peeks of the show on September 1, 2008 and it debuted on October 3, 2008.
The series is about a family of secret scientists that work to keep the truth about cryptids from getting out, to protect both the human race and the creatures themselves.
- Doc Saturday's actual name is Solomon Saturday, which may be a reference to the Solomon Islands where the Duah is said to live.
- The Lau, which appeared in the episode Something in the Water, shares its name with the indigenous people of the Solomon Islands, possibly another reference to Solomon Saturday.
- Pietro "Piecemeal" Maltese's name may be a reference to the maltese tiger, a cryptid tiger with blue fur.
