Green Eggs and Ham is a classic book from Dr. Seuss, one of the greatest children's book writers to ever live. When I first saw the trailer for this, I was skeptical, as Dr. Seuss' works has had a long reputation of having a mixed-to-negative reception since the 2000's (especially with the horrible live-action Cat In The Hat movie that basically was so bad and filled with a lot of kid-unfriendly content, that Dr. Seuss' widow banned any more live action films, hence why starting with Horton Hears A Who, they have been strictly computer animated).
This new cartoon (exclusive to Netflix) basically takes the book and makes it fresh. In this, Sam-I-Am breaks a Chickeraffe out of the zoo with the intention of bringing it back into its habitat. However, he gets his suitcase mixed up with failed inventor Guy-I-Am (who is the guy Sam harasses in the original book), and the two are on the run, as a greedy businessman named wants the Chickeraffe as a trophy, and has hired two bounty hunters to hunt the duo down.
Yeah, this is a different plot than the book's plot of Sam harassing Guy to eat the title meal until he breaks and does it, although it is still squeezed in, with each episode being based on a part of the book where Guy will not eat them in. Also, the series is written well, and the new characters add to Sam and Guy's adventure.
