Netflix has released a teaser for the upcoming Green Eggs and Ham, an animated family show based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name.
The teaser is super short and doesn’t show much, but is just a tiny taste of the show to hold Seuss fans young and old over until the 13-episode first season arrives later this year.
Continue below now for more on Green Eggs and Ham and to check out the teaser video.
The show was actually first announced by Netflix way back in 2015. Here’s what they had to say about it in the press release:
Issued from Netflix headquarters.
Delivered straight to all reporters.
We’d love to share some happy news
based on the rhymes of Dr. Seuss.
Green Eggs and Ham will become a show
and you’re among the first to know.
In this richly animated production,
a 13-episode introduction,
standoffish inventor (Guy, by name)
and Sam-I-Am of worldwide fame,
embark on a cross-country trip
that tests the limits of their friendship.
As they learn to try new things,
they find out what adventure brings.
Of course they also get to eat
that famous green and tasty treat! Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content for Netflix
threw her quote into the mix:
“We think this will be a hit
Green Eggs and Ham is a perfect fit
for our growing slate of amazing stories
available exclusively in all Netflix territories.
You can stream it on a phone.
You can stream it on your own.
You can stream it on TV.
You can stream it globally.”
For those of you less poetic, here’s a change in aesthetic:
Based on the classic global best-selling book by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), Green Eggs and Ham will be adapted for television by Jared Stern (The LEGO® Movie Sequel), who will also serve as executive producer alongside Ellen DeGeneres, Jeff Kleeman, Mike Karz and David Dobkin. The animated family comedy is from A Very Good Production, A Stern Talking To and Gulfstream Television in association with Warner Bros Animation, and distributed by Warner Bros. Television.
Green Eggs and Ham is set to arrive on Netflix sometime this fall.
This fall, the Seuss hits the pan.
“Sam I Am” and “Guy Am I” are on the run in an adventure of epicurean proportions.
