AKA Cult Toons was an experimental comedy show that aired on Cartoon Network UK between 1999 to 2000. The show used episodes of old Hanna-Barbera cartoons and interspersed them with random clips ranging from blaxplotation films, kung fu movies and other cartoons in a style commonly likened to YouTube Poop, years before it hit the Internet. The show was hosted by Jackie Potato, a blaxplotation Expy of Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory. It also had guest host appearances including the likes of professional wrestler Macho Man Randy Savage and the London Towers basketball team.
Cult Toons provides examples of:
- Blaxploitation: Many clips the show uses derive from the genre.
- Expy: Jackie Potato is Dexter with the Blaxploitation level and stereotypes turned Up to Eleven.
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Usually in the form of combining a Hanna-Barbera character with an outside reference. e.g. Captain Majors Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Running Gag: One of the chief sources of humor from the show.
- Stock Footage: Many clips are reused in different episodes.
- Widget Series: "Made only in England!"
