Hoober-Bloob: How would you like be a famous tweetle beetle statistician? You could be the world's greatest authority on tweetle beetle battleistics, if you study tweetle beetles and their ballistic characteristics.

Delightfully peculiar
22 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a strange idea among other Dr. Seuss concepts, but I think that its simple animation and music are very entertaining. Though this short film will rarely receive credit for being a masterpiece, it reflects the genius of Dr. Seuss and continues to impress me. I watch it on occasion, having owned it from a very young age, and I can say without hesitation that it is an important contribution to the Dr. Seuss collection. One thing about it that impresses me is how this is not a well known piece of work among the prolific productions of Dr. Seuss, and yet it shows a quality storyline and assembly of characters. I recommend it for young children, who are certain to be enchanted by its wonderful and quirky style.
