On November 21, 2012 PBS KIDS will premiere the first-ever Cat in the Hat Christmas special, "The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About Christmas!" Set to be a new holiday family tradition, this adventure follows the Cat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home in time for Christmas.
Through this new multiplatform program from the hit PBS KIDS series THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT!, kids and parents will explore natural science through new content on-air, online and beyond.
Sure to be a holiday favorite for the entire family for years to come, this adventure finds the Cat in the Hat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas.
On the way, the Thinga-ma-jigger breaks down, and they depend on a variety of animals – from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs – and their remarkable abilities to help them make an amazing journey home.
In the new online game Freezeyourknees, Follow Me, Please!, Ralph the Reindeer is a long way from Freezeyourknees Valley. The Cat in the Hat is giving the lost reindeer a ride home when the Thinga-ma-jigger suddenly loses its power and makes an emergency landing. Only you can guide Ralph back to his family in time for Christmas – with help from some amazing animal friends!
Freezeyourknees, Follow Me, Please! offers players three levels of game play, each level its own animal-themed “Follow Me” challenge. Grounded in an animal science curriculum, "The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About Christmas!" game will be available at PBSKIDS.org/catinthehat starting November 7, 2012.
“We’re excited to premiere the first Christmas special featuring everyone’s favorite cat,” said Lesli Rotenberg, Senior Vice President, Children’s Media, PBS. “A festive event for the whole family, THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS! will take kids and their parents on a learning adventure, showcasing different types of animals and the incredible abilities they have. In this new holiday special, the Cat will be a trusted guide, helping families discover natural science concepts, while laughing and singing with them along the way.”
