Did You Know?

Narrator:But, because they had stars, all the Star-Belly Sneetches would brag...
Sneetch:We're the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches.
Narrator:With their snoots in the air, they would sniff and they'd snort. They'd have nothing to do with the Plain-Belly sort!

Great!, 20 September 2002
Author: SimpsonsRock11

I love Dr. Seuss animated specials, and this is one of the best! I especially love the "Sneetches", and of course, I have a soft spot for "Green Eggs and Ham"! I love the songs they sing in the entire special, my favorites being the songs the backup singers sing in "Green Eggs and Ham" and the one before "The Zax" and all the songs from the Sneetches.
