Dr Seuss’ - The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!

This exciting animated natural science series, starring the iconic Cat in the Hat, is full of Seussian whimsy. It appeals to preschoolers’ curiosity and engages them in the process of scientific exploration and discovery.

With The Cat as their guide, best friends Sally and Nick fly around the world in the fantastical Thingamajigger – with Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2 along for the ride – making real science discoveries about plants, animals, the human body and space!

Seen through the imaginative eye of The Cat in the Hat, the natural world is revealed to be a truly magical place. Cat’s many gadgets allow Sally and Nick to experience for themselves how things work and his animal friends show them how they are perfectly adapted to survive in different environments.

They always discover cool stuff: like how bees make honey, spiders spin webs and seeds travel or why birds migrate and bears hibernate. They dive into vast oceans, slide and swing through the jungle with snakes and monkeys and work together with ants underground. They explore the solar system and even shrink down super-tiny to go inside the Things’ bodies to see how a heart works and why tummies rumble!

Martin Short stars as The Cat in the Hat.
