Plot Synopsis

Based on Laura Numeroff & Felicia Bond's book of the same name, IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE is a half-hour animated series that follows the adventures of Mouse, Oliver, Moose, Pig, Cat, and Dog, as they discover that when you've got a curious Mouse for a friend one thing always leads to another, then another, and then another! The show's learning approach was developed in consultation with authors Mimi Ito and John Seely Brown and revolves around a cause and effect narrative structure that sparks imagination and the creativity engendered by knowing that possibilities are endless. Each 30-minute episode is comprised of two stories featuring new recordings by Grammy nominated recording artist Lisa Loeb. On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Amazon released the entire 13-episode first season of IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE, a little more than two years after the series pilot was released on November 5, 2015. Amazon also released a 45-minute Christmas special, "If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie," on Friday, November 25, 2016.

The second half of Season 1 premiered on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released an additional six episodes of IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE. The two stories in the first new episode are: "Recycle Races": At the recycling center Mouse and friends have lots of fun sorting and recycling. Mouse is soon whisked away on an unexpected wild ride, which inspires the gang to make their own "wacky rafts" out of plastic bottles. "Change Is Good": Mouse decides to use a bottle as a piggy bank to save up for something special. With pluck and luck, he soon finds his goal getting closer.
On Friday, February 7, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Amazon Prime released "If You Give a Mouse a Valentine's Day Cookie," a 20-minute special. It's Valentine's Day, and Mouse decides to create a giant Valentine's Day Cookie to show how big his feelings are for his best human friend, Oliver. But can he get it, and himself, home in one piece?
