"We think this will be a hit

Green Eggs and Ham

is a perfect fit

for our growing slate of amazing stories

available exclusively in all Netflix territories."

Netflix made the announcement in a cleverly crafted Seuss-style press release that describes

the storyline of the series is just too much fun not to share verbatim:

We'd love to share some happy news

based on the rhymes of Dr. Seuss.

Green Eggs and Ham

will become a show

and you're among the first to know.

In this richly animated production,

a 13-episode introduction,

standoffish inventor (Guy, by name)

and Sam-I-Am of worldwide fame,

embark on a cross-country trip

that tests the limits of their friendship.

As they learn to try new things,

they find out what adventure brings.

Of course they also get to eat

that famous green and tasty treat!
