Is It Any Good?

Although this podcast hinges on the iffy relationship between the chaotic Cat and unnerved Fish, its joyous mayhem celebrates Dr. Seuss' legacy with pizzazz, and is undeniably entertaining. The Cat in the Hat Cast stands out for its fast-moving humor, relentless wordplay, thorough audio experience, and full theatrical commitment by its voice actors. Adult listeners can also tune in for some laughs, but also to catch the social-emotional lessons and reinforce them with kids, since the more memorable parts of episodes will likely be the sillier moments.
