Pre school network Treehouse is proud to announce the arrival of a new show
One of Dr. Seuss’s amazing children’s books is coming to a television near you. The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That will premiere on Saturday, August 7 at 5:30 p.m. ET starring popular comedic actor Martin Short as the voice of the Cat. Alexa Torrington and Jacob Ewaniuk are also part of the show, voicing characters Sally and Nick. Both the young stars are really excited to be a part of television history.
The Cat in the Hat is most likely Dr. Seuss’s most famous book. The story was written in 1957 and to this day, appeals to readers of all ages. This iconic book has lead to five Cat in the Hat sequels and was adapted for film in 2003 drawing such Hollywood hotshots as Mike Myers, Alec Baldwin, Kelly Preston and Dakota Fanning.
Dr. Seuss’s classic children’s books have proven to be timeless and will continue to be everlasting, perhaps even more so with the help of The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That.
“I am over the top excited to be a part of the show,” said Torrington. Torrington and Ewaniuk are both big Dr. Seuss fans.“I’ve seen How the Grinch Stole Christmas 15 times,” said Ewaniuk. Neither Torrington or Ewaniuk have met Martin Short personally but they say he sounds so funny. “He’s an amazing and nice guy,” said Ewaniuk.
In the first episode, Show Me the Honey, Sally and Nick have run out of honey. Fortunately, the Cat knows where to get more. They visit Queen Priscilla Buzzoo who invites them to join her in the bee dance to learn how honey is made. “[The show] is entertaining and funny,” said Torrington. “I’m thirteen and my friends love it. It is educational, really funny and cute.”
