This "villain dresses up" song is like a crackpipe jammed in your skull

You only wish you could get dressed with one 1/100th as much frenzied panache as Dr. Terwilliger in this insane musical number from the 1953 Dr. Seuss movie The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T. Seriously, just when you think it's gone too far... it goes farther. » 1/27/14 4:40pm 1/27/14 4:40pm

What if Dr. Seuss wrote Jurassic Park?

If Dr. Seuss created Jurassic Park, it would probably look (and sound) a lot like this bananas creation Seusstastic Park. Behold, all the stripey wonder! » 9/27/13 2:31pm 9/27/13 2:31pm

The Secret Connection between Dr. Seuss and E.T.

We know lots of little details about Steven Spielberg's E.T.'s (like the fact that E.T. the creature is neither male or female). But we never knew about the connection between E.T. and Dr. Seuss — until we got a glimpse of this vintage concept art. » 9/18/13 12:24pm 9/18/13 12:24pm

What if classic children's books starred comic book characters?

For some reason, the Grinch is getting another movie—this time in CG

After the rage-inducing financial success of The Lorax, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures is apparently on a mission to ensure that Dr. Seuss' most popular books all know the touch of CG.

If Dr. Seuss books were titled according to their subtext

That is to say: If Dr. Seuss books were titled like academic journal articles, they'd probably look a lot like this. They'd also never get read. Sort of like academic journal articles. » 1/17/13 2:00pm 1/17/13 2:00pm

A Seussian adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Tomb" for beginning…

Want to introduce your early reader to the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft? Thanks to R.J. Ivankovic (DrFaustusAu)'s interpretation of Lovecraft's "The Tomb" in the style of Dr. Seuss, it's never too early for children to learn about insanity, hedonism, forbidden knowledge, and an overwhelming obsession with death. » 9/29/12 4:00pm 9/29/12 4:00pm

The extraordinarily surreal World War II editorial cartoons of Dr. Seuss

For those of you who grew up with such classics as Green Eggs and Ham and Horton Hears A Who, these World War II editorial cartoons by Theodor Geisel may take you by surprise. This wasn't a dalliance for Seuss either — the illustrator was a prolific newspaper contributor during the early 1940s. » 5/30/12 8:25am 5/30/12 8:25am

The Lorax: A Movie Whose Heart is 9 Sizes Too Small

The Lorax is everything it claims to be against. It's plastic. It's fake. It's utterly disposable. It has no love in its heart for nature, or for anything else. They took one of Dr. Seuss' most famous books and turned it into a dull comedy, full of tedious pop-culture in-jokes and bland songs. Interspersed with… » 3/02/12 9:00am 3/02/12 9:00am

Posters That Prove Dr. Seuss Movies Could Always Get Worse

Hollywood's latest Dr. Seuss movie adaptation, The Lorax, has been accused of brain washing our kids against capitalism and later put the Lorax himself to work peddling SUVs.

Dr. Seuss taxidermy is equal parts disturbing and charming

Sculptor Carl Turner has created a series of half-realistic, half-fantastical mounted animal heads that were seemingly poached out of a Dr. Seuss book.
