Nature Cat follows a cat named Fred, who dreams of exploring the great outdoors. Of course there’s one small problem: he’s a house cat with no instincts for nature! With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures that include exciting missions full of nature investigation, “aha” discovery moments and a healthy dose of humour.
Nature Cat is created by the Emmy® award winning creative team at Spiffy Pictures and co-produced by Spiffy Pictures and WTTW Chicago. The series was created by twin brothers Adam and David Rudman (Jack’s Big Music Show, Bunnytown).
The series premiered in November 2015 as the highest rated PBS KIDS’ premiere in the network's history, and stars an all-star comedy cast including Saturday Night Live alums Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan, Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson. Nature Cat teaches kids how to connect with nature in everyday environments.
The show has been nominated for 3 Daytime Emmy® Awards and a Television Critic’s Choice Award.
Brown Bag Toronto is currently in production on seasons 2 and 3 of the series.
