The first season was three years in the making following the 2015 series order, and at the time was expected to be the highest-end, most expensive animated program ever produced for television. Green Eggs and Ham just received a PGA Award nomination for Outstanding Children’s Program and also is nominated for an Annie award for Best Editorial – TV Media for its “Mouse” episode.
Green Eggs and Ham is currently streaming worldwide on Netflix.
