A wonderful and entertaining movie, but it's not without its flaws., 19 April 2013
Author: j-jessie-weaver from Texas

I remember having "Daisy-Head Mayzie" on videocassette when I was around three or four years old, and I loved it, mainly because the Cat in the Hat was in it. Now, in 2013 of this year, I was so happy to find it on YouTube last night. It felt great to see a lost piece of my early childhood once again.

However, I now realize this movie is not without a couple of flaws. The rhyming isn't all that perfect, and there is almost no explanation for some of the scenes. I understand why people are saying it's not the best "Dr. Seuss" special in the world, but I still love it, nonetheless. The animation is excellent and really lives up to Theodore Geisel's illustrations.

Overall, if you or your kids are Dr. Seuss fans, I highly recommend this special, regardless of its flaws.
