Voiced by award-winning actor Martin Short, Dr. Seuss’s the Cat in the Hat guides two six-year olds, best friends and next door neighbors, Sally and Nick, on a magical journey - with a little help from the Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2. Through fun-filled adventures they make natural-science discoveries, from how bees make honey to why owls sleep during the day. Filled with both adventure and silliness, the series will appeal to preschoolers’ natural curiosity and engage them in the process of scientific exploration and discovery.

Produced by Portfolio Entertainment Inc. and Collingwood O’Hare Productions, in association with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Random House Children’s Entertainment, Treehouse and PBS Kids, the 'The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!' is based on Random House’s best-selling Beginner Book collection, “The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library.”
