The PBS Kids Show, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, features Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat guiding friends Sally and Nick on fun-filled expeditions. With a little help from the Fish, and Thing 1 and Thing 2, they make natural-science discoveries such as learning how bees make honey or why owls sleep during the day.

The program helps children's science learning by introducing scientific inquiry skills, teaching core science concepts and vocabulary, and preparing preschoolers for kindergarten and first grade science curriculum in a whimsical style.
