Saul of the Mole Men is an American live-action/puppet/animated hybrid comedy television series created by Craig Lewis, former writer on Cartoon Network's The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. The series first aired on the channel's late night Adult Swim programming block on February 11, 2007. Described as an ultra-patriotic Land of the Lost set in the center of the Earth, the series was directed by Tom Stern and stars Josh Gardner, who previously collaborated with Stern on the television series Gerhard Reinke's Wanderlust. Its theme song is performed by South Park co-creator Trey Parker.

Lewis' primary inspirations behind this homage to 1970s-era Saturday morning live-action television were Sid and Marty Krofft (Land of the Lost), Doctor Who (Tom Baker-era) and the Planet of the Apes franchise. On October 31, 2008, Adult Swim ran a special Halloween marathon consisting only of cancelled shows, featuring Saul of the Mole Men, thus confirming its cancellation.
