Daisy-Head Mayzie (1995 TV Short)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
The animation is smooth, vibrant and true to the style of the illustrations in Dr Seuss, books while the rhyming narrative was true to the text in the books. The musical score had some fantastical charm and the Cat in the Hat narrating the story was a pleasant surprise. Mayzie is an adorable, endearing character who I deeply sympathise with because other classmates tease her fro the daisy sprouting from her head and she gets upset about nobody loving her until the daisy does the 'loves me, loves me not' tradition.
Overall this is an endearing work of animation and definitely the best of the 'Best of Dr Seuss' DVD. 8/10.
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.
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
