The Cat in the Hat (the most famous Dr. Seuss character) narrates a story about a girl named Mayzie McGrew, who mysteriously has a daisy growing from her head! This happens during the school hours, so she's ridiculed by her friends, and speculated by her teacher, principal, parents, and any other adults confirmed of Mayzie's problem. The situation reaches its high point when Finagle steps in and offers Mayzie a place in stardom, based from the daisy in her head. Mayzie herself, for reasons unknown, takes the offer, not long before she finds out the hard way how fame & fortune can bring unhappiness. It's some time after her daisy disappears that Mayzie realizes that the love of her family & friends is what really matters. From that point on, things are back to normal (except for a few of Mayzie's daisy's occasional sprout up every now & then). Written by Anonymous

Charming Dr Seuss animation that you get more out of on second viewing
2 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Daisy-Head Maizie, both as a story and an animated adaptation, may not be the best of Dr Seuss, but for someone relatively new to the story and as someone very fond of Dr Seuss it was treat. The animation is bright and colourful, with every background and character drawn simply but elegantly, while the whimsical scoring and cheery songs are also winners. The writing respects Dr Seuss' style with the dialogue, rhymes and song lyrics witty and bouncy. What's also great is how well you makes you laugh and cry without being too forceful. The story may be somewhat slight and sentimental, but also undeniably charming and fun, the sort of story you get more out of on subsequent viewings. The characters are memorable and engaging, and the voice acting is terrific, Henry Gibson and Tim Curry in particular standing out.

All in all, charming and well done, the more you're familiar with it the more you get out of it. 9/10 Bethany Cox
