What would Dr. Seuss say?

April 3, 2008

In an episode of Third Rock From The Sun, visiting alien John Lithgow discovers Theodore Geisel, AKA “Dr. Seuss”, and exclaims; “This man is a genius!!!”

And he was.  I think every time you read a Dr. Seuss poem or book to a child, a million or so new brain cells are created (probably in both reader and child).  But with the exception of the animated Grinch, movies based on Geisel’s books are a dismal failure.  What if the beloved poet could see what we are doing to his work?

Courtesy of The Onion, what would Geisel say?!  How about
Stop making movies of my books!

Did you learn all but squat from The Cat In The Hat?
Please tell me you fired the prick who made that.
I would have stopped writing, maybe sold Goodyear tires.
If I knew one dark day I’d costar with Mike Myers…

Go read the whole thing! Enjoy!
