Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and inspired by Dr. Seuss' book of the same name, GREEN EGGS AND HAM is a half-hour animated series that follows opposites Guy and Sam, as they venture out on a road trip to save an endangered animal from a far off zoo. Along the way they learn to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.

Sam-I-Am is a wildlife rescuer who specializes in saving rare animals and savoring every bite of Green Eggs & Ham. He rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home. Guy-Am-I is an amateur inventor turned professional paint-watcher looking for a warm bowl of oat mush, peace and quiet. He just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher. A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery.

The two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe... despite her mother's fears that it will eat off her face (it won't). Michellee's walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins. The fakakta foursome are also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who's out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy.

On Friday, November 8, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire 13-episode first season of GREEN EGGS AND HAM.
The entire 10-episode second season of GREEN EGGS AND HAM dropped on Friday, April 8, 2022 on Netflix. A secret story, an unsolved mystery, a new beginning -- and spies! Settle in for a second helping of Seuss-inspired fun and epic adventure. In the season opener, "The Mom Identity," a taste of home sends Sam on a mission to find his mom, with Guy and E.B. in tow. But a plot twist takes their story in a wildly different direction.
