We have some new news to share, we can hardly wait:
Green Eggs and Ham is fully cooked and has a launch date!
November 8th is the day to finally get your fix,
Of this fantastical series – only on Netflix.
The world of Dr. Seuss is a whimsical delight,
Sam, Guy and the Chickeraffe now taking the spotlight.
With voices including Adam, Michael, Keegan and Diane,
A series for the whole family, you’re sure to be a fan!
With cinema-quality hand-drawn 2D animation,
It has humor, adventure and a great sophistication.
We’re one month away and have much more in store,
The fun is just beginning, soon you’ll hear more!
Green Eggs and Ham is voiced by Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Ilana Glazer, Diane Keaton, Keegan-Michael Key, Eddie Izzard, Jeffrey Wright, Jillian Bell, John Turturro, Tracy Morgan and Daveed Diggs. Created by Jared Stern, the 13-episode series is executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, Stern, Sam Register, Mike Karz, David Dobkin and Jeff Kleeman. The Warner Bros. Animation project is produced by Helen Kalafatic.
The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Planes, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home.
Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher.
A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery.
Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t). Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins.
Our fakakta foursome are also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who’s out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy.
