The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!

Green Eggs and Ham, also known as Green Eggs and Ham: The Second Serving for its second season, is an American animated comedy adventure streaming television series loosely based on the 1960 Dr. Seuss book of the same title for Warner Bros. Animation and Netflix. The initial miniseries premiered on November 8, 2019 on Netflix.[1][2][3][4][5] The series has received critical acclaim for its animation, humor, story and voice acting. In December 2019, Netflix ordered a second season, titled Green Eggs and Ham: The Second Serving,[6] which was released on April 8, 2022,[7][8] and is a loose adaptation of The Butter Battle Book.[9]

Premise

Starting in Season 1, Sam-I-Am rescues the rare Chickeraffe from a zoo, saying that he intends to return it to its natural habitat. After he accidentally swaps his briefcase, containing the Chickeraffe, for that of failed inventor Guy-Am-I (the unnamed character in the original book), Sam and Guy end up on an road trip adventure with E.B., a girl who wants to adopt the Chickeraffe as a pet, and E.B.'s overprotective mother Michellee, who is also a romantic interest for Guy. The four are pursued by Hervnick Z. Snerz, a tiny, evil, wealthy, and arrogant poacher and collector, who wants to claim the Chickeraffe (named Mr. Jenkins by E.B.) as a trophy; two mysterious "B.A.D.G.U.Y.S." named McWinkle and Gluntz who want to deliver it to their boss, the Bigman; and Snerz's bounty hunter, the Goat (as in the goat that rhymed with "boat" in the book).

In the town of Glurfsburg, a cheerful person named Sam-I-Am breaks into a zoo and liberates a Chickeraffe, a rare and endangered animal. Meanwhile, Guy-Am-I, an inventor, presents his invention, a self-flyer, to Snerz Co. so that he can win a ticket to Meepville. His invention explodes while his fellow inventors all get to go. Michellee, a literal bean counter for the company, worries over her daughter E.B. (Elanabeth), who wants a pet. She learns of the Chickeraffe's escape and plans to catch it. McWinkle and Gluntz, two mysterious "BAD GUYS", interrogate the guard of the zoo, who claims that he saw a kite, a snorkel, and a pole vault, while Hervnick Z. Snerz, the head businessman in Meepville, along with his assistant Yes-Man, wants the Chickeraffe for his rare animal collection. Guy, who gives up inventing, stops by a diner and encounters Sam, who orders his favorite dish: green eggs and ham. Despite voicing his distaste for the dish, Sam orders them for everyone in the diner. Guy ends up leaving, but accidentally takes Sam's identical briefcase. After Michellee sees the news of the Chickeraffe's escape, she prevents E.B. as they are headed to Meepville as well. Guy heads to the motel for the night. As Sam leaves the diner, he sees the cops, who are trying to locate the Chickeraffe, causing him to reveal himself as the mastermind of the theft.

Meanwhile, in another car, Michellee tells E.B. that Meepville will be fun.

Sam then reveals that he himself never had a family and lived most of his life in an orphanage (throughout the show he mentions his bizarre past with his mother, but that was all lies).

E.B. tries to break Mr. Jenkins out and ends up getting the attention of both Michellee and Guy, who went to investigate the noises coming from behind a wall he was watching paint dry from. Michellee sees Snerz's pet collection, and when Guy walks into the same room, she immediately accuses him of animal abuse, causing them to argue with one another. Snerz tells his cronies to come with him and see the Chickeraffe. E.B. realizes that the Chickeraffe is actually a painted Girooster, which relieves Guy and Michellee. As McWinkle and Gluntz show up, E.B. tells Michellee spill the beans because Giroosters like to eat beans. They all escape, just as Snerz realizes he has been "bamboozled". They find Sam at a cold air balloon port with plans to send Mr. Jenkins back home to Chickeraffe Island. Sam is still upset at Guy for what he said earlier and Guy makes it up to him by finally eating green eggs and ham, much to his own surprised enjoyment.

The balloon gets hijacked by the Goat and Guy uses his failed invention to save Mr. Jenkins and finally defeat the Goat, as well as receiving a kiss from Michellee. Back in Glurfsburg, while it is implied that Snerz has been arrested and imprisoned, Sam and Guy are having green eggs and ham, when Sam recognizes the taste as his mother's. He learns that the eggs come from East Flubria and he and Guy set off on another adventure.

They are given a tour of the nation and while E.B. is impressed, Guy just wants to return home. When Hayzel learns that Guy is an inventor, she takes them to Zookia Institute of Technology (Z.I.T.) where Guy excitedly designs an "anti-weapon" for them; impressing the Dookess of Zookia who offers to hire Guy who reluctantly agrees.

They chase Trousers and Blouse into a secret lab under the party and a fight breaks out. While Trousers and Blouse escape, Sam manages to retrieve the Moo-Lacka-Moo, which impresses Pam. However, it turns out to be a heat-absorbing substance called Goo-Lacka-Goo and the two escape from the party from getting absorbed. Meanwhile, E.B. explores Zookia before climbing the wall and meeting a boy named Looka. The two of them become smitten, but when E.B. discovers that he is from Yookia, she quietly leaves.

Looka, knowing that E.B. is from Glurfsburg, but thinking that she is visiting Yookia, shows her around the city. To her surprise, Yookia looks just like Zookia in every way, right down to their waterpark being lavish (she was told that it was a dirty hole filled with water back in Episode 3). E.B. is relieved to learn that Looka also does not believe that the other side is so bad and venture into an abandoned part of the museum where they learn that Yookia and Zookia were once one nation called Ookia that was split after the Dooka and Dookess argued over how to butter their toast. Looka takes E.B. back to his house where he reveals that he is the son of the Dooka, who is inattentive to him.

Guy tries to take the bomb apart, but the Dookess prepares it to be launched. Sam and Trousers fight over the Moo-Lacka-Moo, but it ends up in the hands of the Dooka who attaches it to his missile to launch. As soon as the Dookess sees the missile, she speeds up the launch. E.B. and Looka manage to get their respective sides to hide underground. Both bombs fire off with Sam and Pam riding both of them. They meet halfway as the bombs collide and blow up in the sky. Pam uses the Goo-Lacka-Goo to contain the combined explosions with only the wall getting destroyed. Trousers gets caught in the goo and Blouse blows him away. E.B. and Looka meet and create a butter sandwich for everyone to see. The Dooka and Dookess reluctantly share it to the delight of everyone, and they become Ookia again.

Michellee gives birth to a baby boy named Guy Jr (he looks like Guy hence the name).
