“We’re excited to premiere the first Christmas special featuring everyone’s favorite cat,” said Lesli Rotenberg, senior VP of Children’s Media at PBS. “A festive event for the whole family, the show will take kids and their parents on a learning adventure, showcasing different types of animals and the incredible abilities they have. In this new holiday special, the Cat will be a trusted guide, helping families discover natural science concepts, while laughing and singing with them along the way.”
