LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- "Without A Paddle" star Seth Green is set to launch a Cartoon Network series, using dolls and toys in an his as-yet-untitled U.S. animated series.

Green will produce and may voice the series, scheduled to debut in December on the cable network's Adult Swim nighttime programming segment, MTV.com reported.

The show's format is stop-motion parody, a style Green likens to "The Night Before Christmas," but with spoofing.

"Like a 'Saturday Night Live' variety show, but with toys and dolls and stuff like that. It's hard to explain, but it just looks really funny," Green said.

While the actor has a clear vision for the series, with production beginning in October, securing naming rights has been more challenging.

"It's a really complicated process where the lawyers tell you, 'You can't call it that,'" Green said, listing rejected titles, including "Buggy-boo," "Bugaloo" and "Boogadie-boogadie-boo."

Green's series will follow "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" and "Family Guy," on which Green voices the Chris Griffin character.
