~ Sam asking Joey if he would like to try Green Eggs and Ham.


Sam-I-Am (or Sam for short) is a primary character in Dr. Seuss’s story Green Eggs and Ham. He is a short, anthromorphic cat with no ears or a tail who constantly asks the co-star of the book to try the green eggs and ham. Sam-I-Am has become one of the most recognizable Dr. Seuss characters.

Green Eggs and Ham

Sam first appears at the beginning of the book introducing himself, whilst [unintentionally] annoying Joey. He then asks him if he would like to try "Green Eggs and Ham", to which Joey angrily refuses, stating "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam-I-Am".

Sam then goes to great measures in trying to convince Joey to try the dish, suggest if he would like to try them in various locations (such as in a house, in a box, in a car, on a train, and on a boat) as well as with various individuals (such as with a mouse, a fox, and a goat). Each time, Joey continues to refuses, growing angrier each time and repeating everything Sam suggested.

Eventually, Sam and Joey get themselves trapped on an isolated island alongside everyone Sam suggested Joey should eat with. Joey, feeling defeated, tells Sam that if he tries "Green Eggs and Ham" that Sam will "Leave him be" to which Sam agrees. Joey then eats the dish, and to his surprise, enjoys it, stating "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you, thank you, Sam-I-Am.
