New ‘Cat in the Hat’ Show Debuts in Primetime Broadcast


KIXE is celebrating the premiere of “The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That” kids series with a special primetime broadcast at 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 6.

The family-friendly broadcast, which will include some special in-studio guests and other surprises, is intended to introduce the new Dr. Seuss series and reacquaint parents with KIXE’s strong daily lineup of children’s programming, according to General Manager Philip Smith.

“We’re very proud of our kids’ programs and this should be a fun way to remind folks that Channel 9 continues to be a ‘safe harbor’ on the TV set where their children can visit for fun, curriculum-based programs that mix learning and entertainment in a commercial-free setting,” Smith said.

Voiced by award-winning actor Martin Short, Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat guides friends Sally and Nick, with help from the Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2, on fun-filled adventures where they make natural-science discoveries.

The program, based on the acclaimed The Cat in the Hat Learning Library book series, is designed to appeal to preschoolers’ natural curiosity with the goal of fostering a love of learning and an interest in science. It airs at 8:30 a.m. weekdays beginning Tuesday, Sept. 7.
