At the PBS Annual Meeting, PBS KIDS revealed the all-star voice lineup for its newest animated series, Nature Cat. Premiering on November 25, 2015, the comedy adventure will star Saturday Night Live pros Taran Killam as Nature Cat, Kat McKinnon (Squeeks), Bobby Moynihan (Hal) and Kenan Thompson (Roland) as well as Garfunkel & Oates‘ Kate Micucci.
Nature Cat follows Fred, a house cat who transforms into Nature Cat:
“backyard explorer extraordinaire.” With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures full of nature investigation, discovery and humor, all while inspiring children to go outside and “play the show.”
Aimed at kids ages 3-8, Nature Cat is created by brothers David Rudman (“Cookie Monster” and “Baby Bear” on Sesame Street, “Scooter” and “Janice” on The Muppets) and Adam Rudman (Tom & Jerry, Sesame Street, Cyberchase). The series is a co-production of Spiffy Pictures and WTTW Chicago.
