Starz Launches Online Comedy Channel 'Union Pool' With An 'MST3K' Style Cartoon Show

Sep 19, 2013

Did you used to love watching "Mystery Science Theater 3000," but wish there were more puppets and cartoons involved? OK, probably not. But get ready for this: a new YouTube channel has made that bizarrely specific dream come true.

Watch above to see the first episode of "Captain Cornelius Cartoon’s Cartoon Lagoon," a new web series on the Starz network's brand new YouTube comedy channel, Union Pool. It's a lot like MST3K, only instead of awesomely bad B-movies, the gang snarks-over classic cartoons from your childhood.

Along with "Cartoon Lagoon," Union Pool will feature other animated and live-action series with new episodes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Already launched are "Tvoovies," an animated pop-culture show inspired by Reddit, and "Hollywood Acting Studio," an acting school spoof. Check out a trailer for those shows below.
