The Shellersons/Only The Shadow Knows

Wed, Aug 4 12:00 P.M. NHPBS KIDS      

The Shellersons - On a trip to Barrel Cactus National Park to enjoy nature in all its glorious splendor, Nature Cat and his pals encounter Shelby, a very sad desert tortoise. Today is Shelby's Shellerson Family Reunion party, but none of the other Shellerson members have shown up! Nature Cat vows to help Shelby and find his family members, "The Shellerson Family Reunion will go on!" Only The Shadow Knows - As Daisy, Hal and Squeeks are having a blast making shadow puppets, Nature Cat is just sitting in a tree, watching and waiting, waiting and watching. For what? It seems that yesterday, Norman the Squirrel appeared in the same tree Nature Cat sits in now, took a look at the ground, and said that if Nature Cat wants to see something "unbelievably incredibly amazingly Nature Cat-y!" he has to be in the same spot at the same time tomorrow. Nature Cat isn't moving until he sees something "unbelievably incredibly amazingly Nature Cat-y!"

About Nature Cat:

NATURE CAT follows Fred, a house cat who dreams of exploring the great outdoors.

In each episode, once his family leaves for the day, Fred transforms into Nature Cat, "backyard explorer extraordinaire." Nature Cat can't wait to get outside for a day of backyard nature excursions and bravery, but there's one problem: He's still a house cat with no instincts for nature.

Like many of today's kids, Nature Cat is eager and enthusiastic about outside activities, but is at times intimidated by them.

With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures that include exciting missions full of nature investigation, "aha" discovery moments and humor, all while inspiring children to go outside and "play the show."
