At the launch of Season 1, DeGeneres spoke about partnering with Netflix and her impression of Dr. Seuss. She said, “Dr. Seuss was the first rapper. I think it’s his simplicity…It reminds everybody of their childhood so these are feel-good stories,” the talk-show host said. “It’s the kind of thing that parents are going to want to watch with their kids because it makes them feel good, too. Nobody’s singing baby shark do-do-do, either.”
