Availability information for this program

NATURE CAT follows Fred, a house cat who dreams of exploring the great outdoors. In each episode, once his family leaves for the day, Fred transforms into Nature Cat, "backyard explorer extraordinaire." Nature Cat can't wait to get outside for a day of backyard nature excursions and bravery, but there's one problem: He's still a house cat with no instincts for nature. Like many of today's kids, Nature Cat is eager and enthusiastic about outside activities, but is at times intimidated by them. 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 humor, all while inspiring children to go outside and "play the show."

Episodes:

  • Happy Halentine's Day/The Groundhog Way

    Happy Halentine's Day - Tah-dee! It's Valentine's Day, Hal's most favorite holiday of all! And to celebrate, every year Hal shows his love by handing out cards, flowers and candy to all of his Valentines, ending with a super special delivery of love to his mommy! But there's a slight problem this year, Hal forgot to buy the gifts! Oh no, Valentine's Day is ruined! Never fear! Nature Cat has an idea - they can reuse items found in nature and quickly make their very own Nature Valentines! Phew! The Groundhog Way - It's Groundhog Day! Today the Groundhog should tell our pals if Spring will come early or if Winter will stay around longer. But the Groundhog has a different plan for this year, do nothing! He is not going to come out of his burrow to make a weather prediction! Oh no! Why? Because in the last ten years he's been right only five times. He can't stand the pressure and thinks it's time for someone else to do his job. Without the Groundhog, how will anyone know if spring will come early this year? It's up to Nature Cat to save the day, to fill in for the Groundhog and make his very own weather prediction! Wait, how is he going to do that?!
