Netflix has announced that it has expanded its partnership with Dr. Suess Enterprises to bring some of the most iconic Dr. Seuss stories to life with five new animated series and specials.
The new content will be based on titles like Horton Hears a Who!; The Sneetches; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish; and Wacky Wednesday, and characters including Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose. Along with the new content, Netflix will be premiering the second season of Green Eggs and Ham on April 8.
“Netflix is a trusted home for characters kids love, and generations of kids love the characters imagined by Dr. Seuss. These beloved stories have been a core part of families’ libraries for many years and it gives me great pride that we are bringing them to our catalog of Netflix shows, in a fresh and modern way that resonates with audiences today,” said Heather Tilert, Director of Preschool Content, Netflix.
Here’s more about each of the new projects coming to Netflix.
