Dr. Seuss, the world famous children's author, brings one of the most beloved and recognizable children's literature characters to PBS – The Cat In The Hat! This zany cat will premiere on public televisions across the nation, beginning in September 2010, in the new PBS KIDS series The Cat in the Cat Knows a Lot About That! Based on the best-selling Cat in the Hat's Learning Library book series, this action packed, fun-filled animated program teaches 3-5 year olds about the adventure of science.

Starring acclaimed actor and comedian Martin Short as the voice of the Cat in the Hat, each episode is a ticket to explore with the Cat in the Hat in his amazing Thinga-ma-jigger!

Animated in classic Seussian style, the program stays true to the good Doctor's rhyming wit, kid-friendly wisdom, and wacky world vision. The program brings out the natural curiosity in every child because it's about what kids love most: bugs, birds, snakes, fuzzy animals and fantastic gizmos! The Cat and his crew model the scientific inquiry process with humor and off-beat situations and lots of mad-cap physical comedy from Thing One and Thing Two and dry commentary from the Fish in the bowl.

40 episodes X 30 min

Starring: The One and Only Cat in the Hat
2 Curious 6 year-olds
2 Energetic Things
1 Unflappable Fish
