First, the whole family can join the crazy Cat, Nick and Sally as they investigate hungry tummy troubles, explore the solar system, take a trip to outer space and learn the basics about bones in two brand new two-part episodes premiering Friday.

Then, hop online with your kids as they have a blast playing the Swirly Whirly Pearl Hunt game, where they’ll have the chance to catch a ride courtesy of the famous Thinga-ma-jigger through the colorful ocean filled with friendly critters.

Still can’t get enough of Dr. Seuss? Be sure to check out clips of your fave episodes, plus other fun activities at pbskids.org.
