Even though the turkey’s not out of the oven yet, get a headstart on celebrating Christmas with a new TV special featuring the Cat in the Hat.
For the first time, PBS KIDS debuts the one-hour segment, “The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About Christmas,” tonight on your public broadcasting channel. Watch clips online and check PBS.org for local TV schedules. (Encore presentations will also be shown through December, or consider purchasing the DVD.)
Here’s a brief description of the special: The Cat in the Hat, Nick, and Sally are 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.
Afterwards, play the online game tied to the show, Freezeyourknees, Follow Me, Please!, where children will take the reins in guiding Ralph the Reindeer back home.
