It’s a long time coming but Green Eggs and Ham will be arriving on Netflix in 2019. Almost four years on from the announcement we’ve learned plenty about the upcoming animated series. Here’s everything you need to know on Green Eggs and Ham, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date.

Green Eggs and Ham is an upcoming animated Netflix Original series based on the 1960 book of the same name by author Dr. Seuss. The series has been in production since 2015 and has been cited to be one of the most expensive animated shows ever made. Each episode will cost roughly five to six million dollars.

What is the plot of Green Eggs and Ham?

The synopsis for Green Eggs and Ham is the following:

Guy-Am-I, an inventor and his friend Sam-I-Am go on a cross-country trip that would test the limits of their friendship. As they learn to try new things, they find out what adventure brings.

Where is the production up to?

Considering the series was ordered in 2015, it’s been a long time coming for Green Eggs and Ham. By now we’d like to think that production has almost finished but we’re still waiting for confirmation.

The timeline of events for Green Eggs and Ham is the following:

  • Optioned – 30-Apr-2015
  • Filming – 10-Apr-2018
  • Production Unknown – 25-Nov-2018
  • Filming – 21-Feb-2019

As you can see above filming for the series was as recent as February 2019. The “filming” that took place would have been for the voice actors to record their lines. We could assume the remaining touches for the series are being completed as you read this.

Are there any images or stills of Green Eggs and Ham?


How many episodes will the first season debut?

Green Eggs and Ham will be arriving with 13 episodes!

What are the episode run times?

Run times have yet to be confirmed but we’d expect each episode to be around 20 to 25 minutes.

Has Netflix released a trailer?

Netflix is yet to release a full trailer so you’ll just have to settle for the teaser for now!

When is the release date?

An official release date is yet to be announced but we do have confirmation that Green Eggs and Ham will arrive in Fall 2019. We suspect the release date will be announced when the full official trailer is released.

Will Green Eggs and Ham be available to stream in my region?

Certainly. Green Eggs and Ham will be released as a global original.

What time will Green Eggs and Ham be available in my region?

Are any more of Dr. Seus’ work being adapted by Netflix?

At the time of writing, there are currently no plans for Netflix to adapt any further content from Dr. Seus’ work.
