Netflix has some big news about their upcoming series Green Eggs and Ham. To let you know about it they shared the details in this Dr. Seuss style poem, enjoy:
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!
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.
