User Reviews

A show that got me interested in reading.
16 February 2003 | by BlazeFoxSee all my reviews

Every saturday morning I would sit and watch this show. Damn I miss the 80's. The show didn't just do kiddy stuff, they did some good animated works of sci-fi as well. I remember when they did an animated telling of a book similar to "Dragon Riders of Pern" where people from outerspace train dragons for riding and battle.

Keeshan's book loving cat character influenced kids to read.. no matter how "boring" it seemed.
