We all grew up reading Dr. Seuss books and watching the eventual film adaptations of those books. From How the Grinch Stole Christmas to The Cat in the Hat, those stories became cultural cornerstones and have been carried down from generation to generation. Following hit movies like The Lorax, Horton Hears a Who! and The Grinch, a new era for Dr. Seuss arrives on Netflix with an animated series adaptation of one of his most famous stories, Green Eggs and Ham.
You probably read Green Eggs and Ham a million times growing up and can remember those rhyming passages word for word. But the animated series brings the timeless story to life like you’ve never seen it before.
Green Eggs and Ham follows total opposites Guy-Am-I (Michael Douglas) and Sam-I-Am (Adam DeVine) as they join forces to embark on a road trip to a faraway zoo where they intend to rescue an endangered animal. Along their journey, they learn the upside to venturing to try new things, the importance of friendship and the titular crazy dish.
Green Eggs and Ham comes from executive producer Ellen DeGeneres, who brings the Dr. Seuss classic to your screen along with a team of other veteran producers. The series features the voicework of Adam DeVine and Michael Douglas, in addition to a number of other talented and vocally recognizable stars like Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Diane Keaton. Keegan-Michael Key provides narration for the series, which will contain 13 episodes in its upcoming first season. The little ones watching Netflix won’t want to miss Green Eggs and Ham on Nov. 8.
