THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS -- This One-Hour Special Will Air November 21st on PBS Kids (Review)

"You may be thinking about Halloween costumes, but PBS is already starting to gear up for the holidays and we have the perfect NEW special from everyone’s favorite Cat.  THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! is bringing THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS to families across the country this holiday season.

This November, PBS KIDS rings in the season with a one-hour special – The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About CHRISTMAS!  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 Thingamajigger 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.

The special premieres on Wednesday, November 21st (the day before Thanksgiving), on PBS KIDS, with encore presentations throughout Thanksgiving weekend and in December. It is also available for pre-order and will be released on DVD later this month on 10/31."


My Thoughts:

Mark your calendars for November 21st and tune in to watch this holiday special.  I was sent a screener copy of this one-hour special and have watched it half a dozen times with the girls so far. Even though we tune in daily to watch Nick and Sally travel to far off places with funny names with the Cat in the Hat, she has taken to this holiday-themed episode and continues to ask to watch it.  And, when she sees all the animals appear on the screen, she gets excited pointing them out to Arabella and I, as she attempts to say their names. 

Will the lost reindeer find its way home, or will the Thingamajigger be stranded forever? You will have to tune in to find out.  :-)   Cat in the Hat fans will enjoy this holiday-themed adventure, that will have you singing along to the "Go Go Go" song, and hoping for the reindeer's safe return home, so that Santa has all his reindeer for his magical flight on Christmas Eve.  I am always amazed at the adventures the Cat takes Nick and Sally on, and the friends they are meet along the way.  This one-hour special is jam packed with fun and adventure, that will keep young children engaged and entertained from start to finish. 

I can't wait to tune in again when this one-hour special airs on November 21st, and throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Now, I don't have to worry about entertaining the girls while I put together the final fixings for our holiday dinner.  Instead, Nick, Sally and the Cat in the Hat will entertain them with their Christmas adventure. :-)

Disclosure: I was sent a screener DVD in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
