PEORIA — No, green eggs and ham will not actually be on the menu, but breakfast tacos are, and will be served in a "puffy green taco shell." You can eat them on a boat, with a goat, in a house, or with a mouse. Or better yet, you can eat one right there in the parking lot.

The "Hambulance," an orange ambulance outfitted with a green ham sculpture on top, will stop by the Harkins movie theater at Park West, 9804 W. Northern Avenue, in Peoria on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 10:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., according to a news release. There people will be able to enjoy free tacos, a spokesperson said.

The visit is part of a promotional tour for Netflix's new animated series, "Green Eggs and Ham," based on the popular Dr. Seuss children's book, which dropped Friday on the streaming service. There are 13 episodes available in the first season.

Here is the series synopsis: Based on the beloved book by Dr. Seuss, the upcoming animated series follows opposites “Guy” and “Sam” as they venture out on a road trip to save an endangered animal from a far off zoo. Along the way they learn to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.

The tacos are made with green chili pork, Cheddar Jack cheese, green onions, avocado crema, and angel hair cabbage in a green cilantro taco shell.
