This short lived superhero show was about a Children's book writer named Nicholas. In the daytime, he was kind, funny, and caring. At night, he would transform into Jon Sable, a superhero/vigilante. His sidekick of sorts, was a blind man nicknamed Cheesecake, who pretended he was a stand up comedian (He even had his own laugh track!!!). Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Sable got screwed!
13 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

If the TV show Sable had been shown to its test audience ages 18-25 it would have done so much better. They aired the show on Saturday evenings!! What 18-25 year old is home an a Saturday EVENING WATCHING TV!? Stupid Producers! Now Gene Simons was on his way to producing an awesome movie, The book is great, the comics are great, the writer is great, the art is great! If you agree you should visit www.MikeGrell.com for great information containing future Sable books and comics by author/artist/father;), Mike Grell. Cant say that Lewis Van Bergen is much of an actor, but Rene Ruso has got some killer curves!
