‘Green Eggs and Ham’ is an American animated web series that airs on Netflix. It is one of the streaming platform’s more ambitious projects and it is based on the 1960 book of the same name by Theodor Seuss Geisel, one of the most popular children’s authors of all time, better known as Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss remains the most popular figure in children’s books. His work includes several of the most popular children’s books of all time, selling over 600 million copies and being translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death. It is only fitting that one of his most beloved works, ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ be adapted into a television series by the world’s leading streaming service, Netflix.
The first season of the show was well-received. Now, the question arises: will there be a ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ season 2? We will delve into that question, but first let’s quickly look into the details of the series.
Green Eggs and Ham Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ has some fantastic actors to lend their voices to the characters. Adam DeVine of ‘Workaholics’ and ‘Modern Family‘ fame appears as Sam-I-Am, while Michael Douglas, who has several notable films like ‘Wall Street‘, and ‘Fatal Attraction‘ to his name, and has recently rediscovered himself in ‘The Kominsky Method‘, appears as Guy-Am-I. Diane Keaton, who is instantly recognizable for her role as Kay Adams in the ‘Godfather‘ movies, and from Woody Allen’s ‘Annie Hall‘, voices Michellee. Keegan-Michael Key, best known for ‘Key & Peele’ and also for appearing in ‘Fargo‘, is the narrator of the series.
There are several other notable cast members in various supporting roles, including John Turturro of ‘The Big Lebowski‘ and ‘Do the Right Thing‘ fame voicing Goat, while Jeffrey Wright, who has appeared in ‘Quantum of Solace’ and ‘Casino Royale‘, voices McWinkle.
Green Eggs and Ham Plot: What is it about?
The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Plains, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home. Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world-famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher. A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self-discovery.
Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t). Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins. Our fakakta foursome is also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who’s out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy (Source: Netflix)
If the show is renewed for season 2, it will continue to follow Guy and his friend Sam as they try more many new things, presumably more than green eggs and ham.
Green Eggs and Ham Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Green Eggs and Ham’ Season 1 released on November 8, 2019 on Netflix.
As far as the next season goes, we don’t have an official announcement yet. Though, everyone, including Netflix, is aware of the vast popularity of the book. So, it goes without saying that the show has a very good chance of getting a second season.
