“Do you like green eggs and ham?” “I do not like them, Sam-I-Am” Get ready, y’all, because Netflix is turning one of your favorite books of your childhood, Green Eggs and Ham, into a family series come November. The animated series, which will feature 13 half-hour episodes, has one of the most incredible voices casts, including Keegan-Michael Key as the narrator, Adam Devine as Sam-I-Am, Michael Douglas as Guy-I-Am, Ilana Glazer as EB, and more (plus, Links”>Ellen DeGeneres is one of the executive producers)!
As for the story, it’ll be slightly different than the back-and-forth dialogue in the book. “The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Planes, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss,” according to information provided by Netflix. The story follows Sam and Guy, who meet in a diner and cross paths with Michellee (a love interest for Guy) and her daughter, EB. “Our fakakta foursome are 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.” Sounds like quite the tale!
