Watch The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss

The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss was a television program for children that ran for two seasons. The show was based on characters created by the famous children's author Dr. Seuss. The show combined live action and puppets (by Jim Henson Productions). In the first season, each show is hosted by The Cat in the Hat and tells one of Seuss's stories, such as Yurtle the Turtle. The first season stays true to the books, many of which have a moral. Some of the stories, however are a bit darker, so they may not be suitable for the youngest children to watch.

The second season is completely different from the first. In this season, The Cat in the Hat lives in a house with 26 cats (one for each letter of the alphabet). Each show in the second season has a theme and The Cat in the Hat and visitors (based on Dr. Seuss characters) sing one or two songs related to the theme. The Cat in the Hat also has a "Wubbuloscope," through which he shows viewers locations featured in Dr. Seuss's books, like the Jungle of Nool and Mount Crumpitt. Season Two does not have any of the darker themes of season one, making this season much more suitable for younger children.
