Emphasizing The Importance And Fundamentals Of Reading.
This anthology program, like its rival, the ABC Weekend Specials, encouraged young viewers to take up reading. And it was and still is among my Saturday morning or early afternoon cartoon favorites. I saw this more often than the other show, so it's the one most familiar and memorable to me, in spite of their similarities. There is an assortment of televised animated adaptations of the stories and the ones that have since stuck in my mind include K.L.U.T.Z., Chocolate Fever, and How To Eat Fried Worms. Its purpose and intention to get the youth to read had an impact or influence on me, as the book I wanted to read first and was most interested in reading was K.L.U.T.Z. But unfortunately, I didn't get far, because I tried to order and borrow a copy from my local library, and it seemed to be unavailable, therefore I wasn't successful in checking out that. Later, I found out there were releases of the episodes under the title Video Storybreak. I would have loved to buy or at least rent those, or I wish I had recorded them.
What else can I say about this other than that it's another love of mine? Although I never read any of the stories featured, I'm sure they're just as thrilling as the revisions inspired by them. It's simply another great cartoon that's more than just fascinating. It's enchanting and on the same level as the ABC Weekend Specials. Full of imagination, so much so it's got to be among the most imaginative shows ever made.
