Mystery Cartoon Science Submarine Theater 3000
You know how sailors on submarines sometimes get together to watch cartoons and make fun of them? (Work with me on this.) It turns out someone has made a puppet show out of this totally true and widely known phenomenon, called Cartoon Lagoon, in which animated puppets — I know that sounds confusing but watch the trailer and you’ll understand — watch terrible cartoon and riff on them, MST3K-style. I’m not going to deny that puppets in a theater setting making fun of things doesn’t totally fill one of the many voids in my soul, although it helps that I’m 99% certain that the “It stinks!” line is a Pod People reference. I’m not sure when the first real episode hits, but when I do, you will too.
