Sable Cast

This short lived superhero show was about a Children's book writer named Nicholas Fleming. In the daytime, he was the average kind, funny, and caring person. But at night, he would transform into Jon Sable, a superhero/vigilante who would fight crime.

His sidekick of sorts was a blind man named Joe Tyson. Nicknamed "Cheesecake", he pretended he was a stand up comedian, complete with his own recorded laugh track.

SABLE lasted just seven hour long episodes.
