Producer-distributor Portfolio Entertainment announces the production of a third season of the Dr. Seuss-inspired PBS KIDS animated preschool series The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!
The news comes on the heels of Portfolio Entertainment securing two Canadian Screen Award (CSA) nominations for the hour-long special, The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About Camping! Director Paul Hunt earned a nomination for ‘Best Direction in an Animated Program or Series’ and actor Martin Short, who voices The Cat, scored a nod for ‘Best Performance in an Animated Program or Series’.
“The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! is a series with endless opportunities for innovative storytelling and continues to be embraced by audiences around the globe,” said Portfolio Entertainment, CEO and co-founder, Lisa Olfman.
“The new season of The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! features a brand new theme where the adventures take us out of the natural world to imaginary Seussian places where The Cat and his friends explore physical sciences and how things work,” said Susan Brandt, President, Dr. Seuss Enterprises. “Dr. Seuss was so passionate about nature and science; there is no doubt he would have loved seeing his characters fostering a love of learning and discovery in the next generation of children.”
The show recently received two Canadian Screen Award nominations for the hour-long Camping! special: Best Direction in an Animated Program for Paul Hunt, and Best Performance in an Animated Program for actor Martin Short, who voices The Cat.
The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! is produced in association with Random House Children’s Books and Dr. Seuss Enterprises, and funded in part by the US Department of Education through a Ready To Learn grant.
