Soil Turmoil/Wisteria Hysteria

Tue, Mar 1 3:00 P.M. NHPBS      

Look out world, Steve the Vole is not a happy camper! And he has every right to be upset because his burrow is gone. It was the perfect place to live. The dirt was soft enough to dig though and firm enough to hold his tunnels, but now it's just a giant hole in the ground! Who would take all that dirt, and why? Steve just wants his home back - is that so much for a little vole to ask for? Not to worry! Nature Cat, dirt retriever extraordinaire, is on the case. Onward and dirtward! / Oh no! Daisy needs some big-time help today. She was on her way to bring jumbo carrot muffins (made with true love) to Granny Bunny, but when she came to the tunnel of wisteria vines she usually goes through to get to Granny's house, someone started throwing things at her so she got scared and turned around. That's just not right! Who would do that? Hal hears that Big Bad Wolf was in that area, and since he is so big and bad, he's probably the one throwing things. The Big Bad Wolf? Gulp! The gang investigates only to find that the culprit is...an exploding wisteria seedpod?

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."
