My view of The Cat in the Hat every morning. Yes, I’m obSEUSSed.
In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ 109th birthday on March 2, PBS will air two brand-new episodes of THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! this Friday, March 1 (check local listings).
On-Air: Kids will join the Cat, Nick and Sally in two brand new episodes - “Rumbly Tumbly / Planet Name Game,” featuring a super shrunken trip into Thing One's stomach as well as a whirlwind trip to each of the eight planets, and “Top of the Sky / Jiggle Bones,” folloing the Cat, Nick and Sally as they travel to Audrey the Astronaut’s space station and visit Dr. Giggles to see why bones are important.
Online & Mobile: Viewers continue the fun with the Cat in the Hat in the new “Swirly Whirly Pearl Hunt” online game, which is filled with aquatic creatures of all colors, shapes and sizes, and players can catch a ride on the Thinga-ma-jigger to travel deeper and deeper through silly, Seussian schools of fish. Video clips from both episodes will be available for free online at pbskids.org/video and on the PBS KIDS Video App starting March 1.
IF YOU CAN’T WATCH FRIDAY:
My 7-year-old son will be at school Friday when the new shows air. He loves learning about planets right now and would really enjoy the Planet Name Game episode so I’m glad they offer the online and mobile clips (and games) so he can watch part of the show.
Remember to mark your calendars for Friday or view it online.
