| What was the cats name?!
I love the after school specials, they are classically corny but I used to enjoy them, wish they would release a DVD, play them on T.V. even in the middle of the night. These after school specials are very nostalgic and full of 1970s and 1980s essence. It would also be interesting for them to re invigorate the series. It is very sad that the quality of programming has disappeared. I used to enjoy the old school PSA's that often accompanied these specials. I cant believe how many stars they had on these, and finally the reason i am here DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THE NAME OF THE CAT THAT WOULD INTRODUCE THESE? PLEASE RESPOND I believe he wore some type of hat and a scarf if I remember correctly.thanks take care. I wish I had the entire 1970s and 1980s television line up recorded for posterity. That may be an idea for a cable network, one that solely focuses on 1970s and 1980s programming of all kinds, or a channel that focuses on a different decade weekly or something. Im sure there is demand for this type of programming.. I hope thats ten lines...peace
