The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas!
The blockbuster holiday special is returning to KQED! Join the Cat in the Hat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer make his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas. On the way, the Thingamajigger breaks down and they depend on a variety of animals — from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs — and their remarkable abilities to help them make an amazing journey home. With gorgeous animation and pull-out-all-the-stops musical numbers, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas! will have families singing and celebrating all season long. Airs Wednesday, November 27 at 8:30am and throughout Thanksgiving weekend, with encore presentations on December 13 and December 24.
