A Prickly Problem/A Shedtime Story

Tue, Jul 23 6:00 P.M. NHPBS KIDS      

Oh no! Norman the Squirrel and the rest of the woodland creatures are scared. There was a porcupine sighting in the woods, so they're all hiding in Hal's doghouse to stay safe. Stay safe? What's so scary about porcupines? Well, according to Norman the Squirrel, the quills on porcupines' back are like sharp needles and porcupines can even shoot them at you from far away. So scary! But Daisy isn't convinced. It's time for a little scientific investigation to debunk this nature myth! / What in the woods is wrong with Hal today? He is so itchy, and begins to scratch all over, which causes some of his fur to fall off. This alarms Nature Cat who thinks that Hal has the Fury Flu and he will lose all his hair! When Daisy and Squeeks are the next to get itchy, and some of their hair falls out, Nature Cat thinks that the Fury Flu is contagious and runs off. He doesn't want to lose all his hair too!

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."
