i believe there is some confusion here.
24 January 2007 | by snkreed99See all my reviews

I remember this show, but i do not remember a cat. I think the other viewer might have gotten this show mixed up with the ABC weekend special, it was hosted by capt. O.G. Readmore. A cartoon cat who in later episodes, became animatronic. the two shows were very similar. the both encouraged children to read, they we both based on books, and they both came on at the end of Saturday morning cartoons. ABC Weekend Special, was on a lot longer than Storybreak, though. I believe it was a spin off of the famous, or should i say, infamous, ABC after school specials. It started in the late 70's. The only difference was that it was more lighthearted.
