Cap'n O.G. Readmore

Cap’n O. G. Readmore was the fictional-character host of the ABC Weekend Specials from 1984 through 1989. He was an anthropomorphic cat puppet, dressed in a nautical outfit, that encouraged children to read for pleasure.

He also appeared in animated form in a few Weekend Specials, including Cap’n O. G. Readmore Meets Chicken Little and Cap’n O. G. Readmore Meets Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; in these features, he was the president of an all-feline book club who often found himself physically pulled into the story he’s reading.
