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 and final 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 first season 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] On October 8, 2022, Jared Stern announced that the series will not be returning for a third season.[10]

Premise

In season one, Sam-I-Am rescues a 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 (Joey), Sam and Guy end up on a 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 Mr. Hervnick Z. Snerz, a tiny evil poacher and collector, who wants to claim the Chickeraffe (named Mr. Jenkins by E.B.) as a trophy, two mysterious agents called the "BAD GUYS", named McWinkle and Gluntz, and Mr. Snerz's bounty hunter, the Goat (as in the goat that rhymes with "boat" in the book).

In season two, titled The Second Serving, which is a sequel miniseries to season one that takes place one week after Mr. Snerz and the Goat's defeat and Mr. Jenkins' departure in season one, Sam, Guy, and E.B. set off on another adventure to East Flubria to find Sam's mom Pam-I-Am, who reveals that she is stopping the nations of Yookia and Zookia, which are at war with one another as a precious orb-like object (the Moo-Lacka-Moo) is stolen by her. So it is up to Sam, Guy, Pam, E.B., and her new friend Looka to return the Moo-Lacka-Moo and stop the war.

In the town of Glurfsburg, a spy breaks into a zoo and liberates a Chickeraffe (chicken giraffe hybrids), a rare and endangered animal. Meanwhile, Guy-Am-I, an inventor, heads to Snerz Co.. Sam-I-Am, a cheerful person, walks down the street. Guy presents his invention, a self-flyer, 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 Snerz Co., 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 sniveling assistant Yes-Man, wants the Chickeraffe for his rare animal collection. Guy, who gives up inventing and decides to be a paint watcher, 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. Guy attempts to burn Sam's briefcase in a severe state of depression, but he takes it out due to faint noises from the briefcase. He opens it and the Chickeraffe comes out.

He announces to them all that he is no longer inventing and that he is going to become a paint watcher and leaves to his treehouse angrily. Sam goes to talk to Guy, who admits that he feels insecure around his family due to their successful achievements. 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). The reason why he loves green eggs and ham is because he still remembers how his mother cooks them and he hoped to this day that once he find the right flavor from various diners he visited, he would find her as well.

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. 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. After that, Mr. Jenkins returns to Chickeraffe Island, Snerz and the Goat are both arrested, and everyone returns to Glurfsburg. One week later, 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 is about to set off on another adventure.

As Sam and Pam use a cloaking device so they cannot be seen and Guy closes the door so he cannot be interrupted, the narrator decides to make the episode focus on E.B. who manages to evade the guards and runs into Looka again. 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 the Aquatic Center waterpark being lavish (she was told that it was a dirty hole filled with water back in Episode 3). The narrator cuts to Michellee, who is at home in Glurfsburg and walking down the street, before the narrator cuts back to E.B. and Looka. After having fun at the waterpark, 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. The narrator cuts to Michellee again, who is shopping for food and getting a checkup. Looka takes E.B. to his house where he reveals that he is the son of the Dooka, who is inattentive to him. E.B. solemnly reveals that she came from Zookia; forcing Looka to hurriedly take her back to the wall before they seal it off. They promise to see each other again. Back in Glurfsburg, the narrator is shocked to learn that Michellee is pregnant as she sends a message to Guy who is preoccupied at the moment.

Upon landing, Trousers loses the Moo-Lacka-Moo to Kangarangutans (kangaroo orangutan hybrids). Meanwhile, Guy gets Michellee's message and asks to work full time, made better when the Dookess learns that Michellee is a painter and hires her too. Sam and Pam encounter an islander named Bo who reveals that the deeper into the island you go, the younger you become. As the two venture deeper, it becomes evident that Pam neglected her priorities with Sam. As he becomes a baby, Pam protects him from the Kangarangutans, who empathetically relate to her and give her the Moo-Lacka-Moo. Trousers catches up and as they escape the island, Pam and Sam hastily experience the times they should have had growing up. Trousers is accosted by Crocopotamuses (crocodile hippopotamus hybrids). Believing that Guy and E.B. have been kidnapped, Bo gives Sam and Pam a boat to escape the island. Back at Zookia, Guy calls Michellee and tells her that Zookia is a great place.

Meanwhile, Sam and Pam sneak into a restricted area inside a house. Guy reveals where Looka was supposed to meet with E.B. and has him captured, much to E.B.'s anger who refuses to speak with him now. A very delighted Sam and Pam "rescue" the two of them and takes them to their safehouse for a sleepover. Guy reveals that Michellee is having a baby, but E.B. is still angry with him, even when Sam attempts to get her to make up with him. Guy becomes suspicious of Pam when she fails to remember how the Yooks and Zooks butter their toast and becomes convinced that her mission to return the Moo-Lacka-Moo to the Yooks is for selfish reasons. He tells Sam this who appears convinced after he realizes that she still has not made green eggs and ham for him. At night, Guy tries to convince E.B. that they should leave with Sam, but she rebuffs him. Sam takes the Moo-Lacka-Moo and wakes up Pam as they leave to deliver it to the Yooks.

Guy and Pam both realize that they are both dismantling the bomb when Michellee suddenly goes into real labor (she faked it in the last episode so Guy could dismantle his weapon). Sam and Trousers fight over the Moo-Lacka-Moo, but they lose it. Guy, Michellee and Pam are confronted by the Dookess and her guards whom Pam and Michellee fight off. Guy tries to take the bomb apart, but the Dookess prepares it to be launched. The Moo-Lacka-Moo ends up in the hands of the Dooka who attaches it to his missile to launch. E.B. and Looka manage to get their respective sides to hide underground. As soon as the Dookess sees the missile, she speeds up the launch. 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. Gluntz arrives, revealing that the conflict was started by cows in order to raise the profit margins of the butter industry for "the 2%", though no one believes her except the Dooka and Dookess, who take them into "custardy". Michellee gives birth to a baby boy named Guy Jr (he looks like Guy hence the name).
