Netflix and Dr. Seuss Enterprises have announced they will bring some of the stories and characters from Dr. Seuss to life with five new animated preschool series and specials.  

The projects are inspired by stories like "Horton Hears a Who!," "The Sneetches," "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" and "Wacky Wednesday," in addition to characters like Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose. The announcement expands the partnership between Netflix and Dr. Seuss Enterprises following "Green Eggs and Ham" in 2019.  

The new Dr. Seuss line-up will anchor Netflix's expanded focus on preschool. Introducing foundational learning concepts, this new slate of programming will explore themes of diversity and respect for others, all told through stories that incorporate Dr. Seuss's whimsical humor, distinctive visuals, and rhythmic style. 

"Netflix is a trusted home for characters kids love, and generations of kids love the characters imagined by Dr. Seuss," says Heather Tilert, director, preschool content,

Netflix. "These beloved stories have been a core part of families' libraries for many years, and it gives me great pride that we are bringing them to our catalog of Netflix shows in a fresh and modern way that resonates with audiences today."  

"Dr. Seuss Enterprises is proud of the collaborative relationship we share with Netflix," says Susan Brandt, president, chief executive officer, Dr. Seuss Enterprises. "We are always looking for new and engaging ways to share our stories, characters and messages with the next generation of fans, and Netflix has a unique ability to create original, delightful adaptations of our timeless classics with an emphasis on imagination, fun, and education. Our partnership has been very prosperous thus far with our award-winning animated series 'Green Eggs and Ham.' We hope to continue that success with our upcoming projects."
