Entertaining, but with one scene not recommended for younger kids
7 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An entertaining adaptation, and far more opulent than the same studio's "And to Think that I saw it on Mulberry Street" of the following year. The panoramic landscapes and colorful interior and exterior shots are well crafted. But my four-year-old had to cover her eyes during a scene with a guillotine and an executioner. Not recommended for younger kids. That being said, the Marxist overtones and political themes will be of interest to adults (as are the subtexts of so many of Dr. Seuss's books) and all will be delighted with the extravagant hats. Kudos to the IFC Center in NYC for showing this short in their "Rare Dr. Seuss films" festival. While some of these shorts are available on DVD, there is little comparison to seeing them in a theater with other kids.
