Emmy Award-Winning Philadelphia-Based Production Company & Nationally Acclaimed Partners Inspire Future Generations Through Music & Creativity, Continuing Nora’s Legacy

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Today, All That’s Good Productions unveils an official sizzle reel for Nora the Piano Cat, a creative, culturally diverse, and educational animated children’s series for all ages, inspired by one of Philadelphia’s first viral animal stars, Nora the Piano Cat. The show stars Nora, who first became globally recognized in 2007 as a musically gifted internet sensation after a YouTube video of her playing the piano went viral. Nora has been featured on BBC Earth, TODAY.com, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, 6ABC Action News, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Hong Kong’s My Pet magazine, National Geographic, and more.

Earlier last week, fans worldwide learned of Nora’s passing at age 19 on February 5, 2024. Despite this loss, her memory endures through the music and joy she brought to her devoted global fanbase.

“I did not adopt Nora the Piano Cat, she adopted me,” says Nora’s owner Betsy Alexander. “I had no idea at that moment that she was a cat genius destined to become an inspiration to so many people. The animated series will allow her to live on and continue to entertain and inspire us to pursue our dreams as she teaches us that we all have many abilities and hidden talents. There are so many beautiful life lessons to be learned from this project as our beloved feline friend Nora the Piano Cat thrills and delights children all over the world.”

This new series, produced in Nora’s hometown of Philadelphia, aims to enrich global audiences by showcasing diverse music genres. Studies indicate that musical activities promote cognitive development and self-expression, while exposure to culturally diverse music fosters empathy and cultural understanding. Despite the documented benefits of music education, schools nationwide are cutting arts programs due to budget constraints, depriving countless children of access to art, dance, and music classes. Nora The Piano Cat strives to offer innovative solutions to address accessibility challenges surrounding music and arts enrichment. This series also aims to nurture children’s self-expression through creativity, while advocating for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Nora the Piano Cat has the potential to inspire and encourage the next generation of creatives. We’re grateful for the opportunity to craft this series with a dedicated team that truly understands the meaning of collaboration, inclusivity, creativity, and the magic of music,” says Elena Ordille, producer at All That’s Good Productions. “We have been in conversations with high-profile networks and brands, the support has already been flooding in and we are excited to see this project come to life, as we anticipate the project premiering later this year.”

“My goal with this series is to capture even just some of the magic that Nora brought to the world every day and help her legacy live on for many years to come through all of her fans around the world,” says Michael Foulke, Nora The Piano Cat writer.
