   "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!" is now airing on CiTV
   Cats in hats upon the box   (07.10.10)


  Fancy that!
  A very fine cat!
  A very fine cat, with a tall stripey hat!
  Originally drawn by Dr Seuss
  This friendly feline's been let loose
  Upon the box, for our enjoyment
  With Collingwood O'Hare behind his deployment!

  Okay, okay, we'll stop before Ted Giesel's lawyers come a-knocking
  and a-ringing - rat-a-tat-tat - for mocking their most famous cat.
  What we're trying to say is, there's a big stripey new show in town.
  Or should we say, it's on CiTV. "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot
  About That!" takes us on a series of informative adventures with
  Dr. Seuss' exuberant creation (as voiced by Martin Short), and
  his two young pals Sally and Nick, with Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2
  along for the ride. The series takes its cue from the best-selling
  Beginner Book collection "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library"
  published by Random House, and it sees the gang taking flight
  in Cat's spectacular, fantastical Thingamajigger machine to
  learn about the big bright world around them.

   Sally and Nick in "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!"

  There are 24 x 12mins episodes currently airing on CiTV, with
  further episodes from a commission of 80 shows being delivered
  in the run up to Christmas. And although this might come across
  as an All-American presentation, there is in fact significant UK
  involvement, courtesy of our very own BAFTA-winning friends at
  Collingwood O'Hare. If you want greater detail, we can tell you
  "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!" has been produced
  by Collingwood O'Hare Productions and co-production partners
  Portfolio Entertainment Inc. in association with Dr. Seuss
  Enterprises, Random House Children's Entertainment,
  Treehouse and PBS...

  Serves you right for asking, doesn't it?

  Cat in the Hat. Collingwood O'Hare. That's the important thing.
  Do we also need to tell you that Tony Collingwood and Chris O'Hare
  are the multi-award-winning duo behind the likes of The Secret Show,
  Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto!, Animal Stories, Eddy and the Bear,
  "Harry & His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs", Gordon the Garden Gnome,
  and Dennis & Gnasher from The Beano?
