Starship Sassafrass

Imagine if the Muppets went to outer space. That's Starship Sassafrass, a puppet web series for kids! The puppets, accompanied by a human (Scoutmaster Steve, who calls the puppets Sassacouts), have adventures as they travel through space. The puppets have kid-friendly names like "Dr. T" and "Mr. Pickles."

NOTE: Series stopped after 3 episodes. Only the first two are captioned.

Con Man

This 13-episode web series made crowdsourcing history in early 2015 when it raised a record 3 million plus, becoming the most-funded web series ever on Indiegogo. Available only as a pay web series via Vimeo on Demand, it has captions in three languages: English, German, and Spanish! The series was conceived by two actors from a 2002 TV series called "Firefly." In this series, former actors from a cancelled TV show attend conventions. Unfortunately, we could not get a screenshot showing the captions, but as proof here is the listing of available subtitles.
