The Deal with Eels/Skip It!

Wed, Jun 16 11:30 A.M. NHPBS KIDS      

It could quite possibly be Nature Cat's worst nightmare! Squeeks tells her friends a spooky story of a creature that looks like a snake and swims in the river, and nobody knows where it comes from or where it goes. Nature Cat is just glad this is a story and not real, but Squeeks says it is real and shows a picture of the swimming snake. Excited, Squeeks wants to go and look for this creature, and when Daisy and Hal want to join her, Nature Cat knows that his worst nightmare has just come true! / When challenged by Ronald to compete against him for the Neighborhood Rock-Skipping Championship of the World, Nature Cat confidently accepts. How hard can it be to be a good rock skipper? But in preparing for the competition, Nature Cat finds that not only does he have to know how to skip a rock, but some rocks are better than others at being skipped. Looks like Nature Cat is between a rock and a hard place!

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."
