Today Netflix announced the voices behind the beloved Dr. Seuss story, “Green Eggs and Ham“.

The story of “Green Eggs and Ham” is like a postmodern Plains, Trains, and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss.  Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home.

Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world-famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher.

A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery.

Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t).  Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins.

Here is the full list of characters:
