Checking The Boxes/Batteries Not Included
cat in the hat knows a lot about that!

Sally and Nick have wrapped Father's Day gifts, but when they get mixed up the kids can't tell which is which. Cat takes them to Zippy Zaroo's Cookie Factory where each cookie has a toy inside. When the shrunken Thingamajigger ends up inside a cookie, they have to use their knowledge about the properties of matter and deductive reasoning to identify which cookie it's in. Nick and Sally are disappointed when their toy's battery runs out of power. The Cat takes them to Lots-o-Lakes Land to see the flight of the Dipsydoodlers. But along the way, the Thinga-ma-jigger runs out of Go-Go-Go juice and they have to find alternative forms of energy to make it go.

About Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!:

Coming to television for the first time ever in an animated series, the Cat in the Hat whisks pre-schoolers off on a voyage of scientific discovery.

"The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!" features six-year-olds Sally & Nick, best friends and next door neighbors, who are transported on magical journeys to all corners of the globe where the natural world becomes their playground.

With the Cat as their guide, his two energetic helpers, the zany duo, Thing One and Thing Two and the enigmatic Fish along for the ride, every outing becomes an unpredictable adventure.

In each episode, Sally and Nick head off with the Cat in his one-of-a-kind custom vehicle, the Thinga-ma-jigger, a quintessentially Seussian contraption that instantly transforms from plane to boat to submarine with just a flick of the jigger-ma-whizzer or a honk of the shrinkamadoodle.

They go everywhere from the ocean bottom, to a rainforest, or to the centre of a beehive.

The Cat in the Hat "knows a lot" but he doesn't know everything making him the perfect guide for learning and fun.
