A tale of two hostile neighboring countries, one country is occupied by the Yooks, while the other is occupied by the Zooks. Both countries don't agree with each others ideology. Due to this issue they ended up building a wall in between the border of the two opposing cultures. The main reason they hate each other is because both cultures have a different way of buttering their bread. The Yooks eat their bread butter side up while the Zooks eat their bread butter side down. The story is told by the perspective of a Yook border patrol guard who tries to outwit a Zook name Van Itch with the latest Yooks weapon. However every time the border guard presents his weapon, Van Itch would have a weapon that is able to counter attack the Yook's weapon. This leads to an arms race with results leading to a mutual assured destruction. Written by
I did not care for this at all. I wish Dr. Seuss would've stayed away from all political/social commentaries because it gets old very fast. This cartoon has all the subtlety of a sledgehammer and is also about as funny.It's still Dr. Seuss so there is some whimsy, so in the end I gave it 5 out of 10.
