To The Saturdays, ordinary folktales aren’t just legends -- they are real-life mysteries and adventures. Janet Hetherington digs up some secrets from creator Jay Stephens about The Secret Saturdays, the new comedy-action animated series airing on Cartoon Network. There's something nostalgic about Saturday morning cartoons and those days when kids woke up early to watch their favorite animated adventures. In the show, Doc, Drew and Zak Saturday are a family of world-saving adventure scientists called The Secret Saturdays.
Stephens began his career creating independent comic books such as Atomic City Tales, The Land of Nod and Jetcat Clubhouse, which he later made into an animated short.
With regard to episode plotting, Stephens says, "Brandon and I, together with producer Fred Schaefer, brainstorm plots and story arcs at the outset, and then assign particular episodes to the freelance writers best suited to them.
The voice cast includes Phil Morris as dad Doc Saturday, Nicole Sullivan as mom Drew Saturday, Sam Lerner as son Zak Saturday, Diedrich Bader as Fiskerton, Fred Tatasciore as Zon and Komodo and Corey Burton as V.V. The Secret Saturdays is part of Cartoon Networks' Friday night fantasy-action-adventure line-up, which also includes Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Right now, Stephens makes his home with those strong women in Canada, and the creator found that the traveling he did was possibly more taxing and less enjoyable than the exotic traveling done by Saturdays.

Still, Stephens has high hopes for the show, and is already conceiving more adventures for The Secret Saturdays.
And with regard to the ongoing theme of ancient temples and history found in his animated shows Tutenstein and The Secret Saturdays, Stephens quips, "I'm a nerd. Janet Hetherington is a freelance writer and cartoonist who shares a studio in Ottawa, Canada, with artist Ronn Sutton and a ginger cat, Heidi.
They live in a hidden base and are part of a network of scientists who protect against all the underlying evil in the world. The short was featured in the Nickelodeon animated series KaBlam that helped propel a transition into animation and earned Stephens an Annie Award nomination.

Following The Secret Saturdays premiere on October 3, 2008, Cartoon Network reported that the show earned 35% more kids 6-11 and 86% more boys 6-11 than programming that appeared in the same time period in 2007.
To the Saturdays, ordinary folk-tales are not just legends, but real-life mysteries and adventures.
Stephens has also won two Daytime Emmy Awards for his international animated series Tutenstein on NBC and Discovery Kids.

However, Stephens first conceived of the show some five years ago, and it was originally called Cryptids.
Still, aside from their adventures, the Saturdays -- along with their hyper exotic pets Fiskerton, Komodo and Zon -- are a loving family, trying to work through everyday family matters and squabbles. Similarly, The Secret Saturdays also increased kids 2-11 delivery by 47%, boys 2-11 delivery by 67%, tweens 9-14 delivery by 23% and boys 9-14 delivery by 60%. Traveling from the Gobi Desert to the Marianas Trench, the Saturdays explore ancient temples and bottomless caves, tangle with twisted villains and scour the globe in search of cryptids: mysterious creatures that live undercover all over the world.
I turned my meager skills into an advantage by deciding that the series should have a 'comic book' look. I love where I live, close to all my family, but I never rule out the possibility of relocating.
