With three kids ranging in age from 2 to 8, it’s hard to find shows that everyone agrees on. PBS Kids usually succeeds though and Nature Cat is no different! My six year old daughter and two year old son especially love these fun filled adventures! They are both cat lovers so that’s all it took to get them to watch the show the first time.
Fred is a fun house cat who just loves adventure! When his family leaves for the day he becomes nature cat and goes on some wild adventures in his very own back yard.
We took a sneak peak at some new episodes that will be airing soon on May 23rd and my kids just fell in love! In The Great Grasshopper Race we meet Dustin Hopman (love the name) who is getting ready for a big race when he goes missing! Nature Cat and friends must find him in time for the race!
My kids favorite was Fall for Hal. Maybe it’s because fall is our favorite season around here. Fred’s buddy Hal loves fall too! He likes to do a first day of fall scavenger hunt but that plan is in jeopardy when he gets sick! My kids can definitely relate to missing out on things from being sick so it was really helpful to see this storyline! Fred and friends work together to bring the scavenger hunt to their friend so that he doesn’t have to miss out. What a great story of friendship!
Nature Cat is a wonderful show filled with fun friends and great storylines that encourage imagination and friendships and my kids have just fallen in love it! Don’t forget to stay tuned May 23rd for these new episodes!
About the Show
Nature Cat tells the story of 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 adventures, but there’s one problem: He’s still a house cat with no instincts for nature itself. 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.” Nature Cat’s adventures take him through his family’s big backyard, into the woods, and then into the “four corners” of his natural world: parks, ponds, caves, gardens, marshes, ravines, swamps, canyons, nature preserves and mountains.
About the Episodes
The Great Grasshopper Race
Hal’s grasshopper buddy Dustin Hopman will be competing today in the Great Grasshopper Race. Hal has been training him, and now there is no doubt that Dustin is ready to go! But before the race starts, Dustin inexplicably hops off into the woods. It’s up to the gang to find Dustin and bring him back before the race starts. But looking for a small green bug turns out to be more easily said than done!
Fall For Hal
The first day of fall is Hal’s favorite day of the year. It’s when he always goes on his First Day of Fall Scavenger Hunt. But there is a big problem this year. Hal is sick and can’t get out of bed! When it looks like Hal is in for some major disappointment today, Nature Cat comes up with a great idea: they will bring fall, and all the items on his scavenger hunt list, to Hal!
