Netflix and Warner Bros. Animation have announced a November 8th premiere date for “Green Eggs and Ham,” the upcoming animated series based on the classic Dr. Seuss children’s story.
Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Ilana Glazer, Diane Keaton, Keegan-Michael Key, Eddie Izzard, Jeffrey Wright, Jillian Bell, John Turturro, Tracy Morgan, and Daveed Diggs lend their voices to the thirteen half-hour episodes and have sent out a video showcasing a look at the cast reading from the famed book.
Dubbed a “postmodern Planes, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss” by Netflix, the series sees Sam rescuing the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hiding it in a briefcase, and attempting to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home.
Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher. A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self-discovery.
The series features “cinema-quality hand-drawn 2D animation” and is created by Jared Stern and executive produced Ellen DeGeneres, Sam Register, Mike Karz, David Dobkin, and Jeff Kleeman.
