Love this movie!!!
9 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remembered only bits and pieces of this movie from watching it as a kid. As i got older the specific names and title was forgotten and i was only left with vague memories of a great Dr. Seuss childhood movie. I tried time and time again to explain it to my husband but he just didn't get the picture i was sending. so finally i searched for it on the internet. After several painstaking hours searching through several Dr. Seuss websites i found it here! The colors are great and the places are something completely out of a mind like Dr. Seuss. The storyline is a great teacher for youngsters and i cant wait to pass it on to my children. Its great to see such a classic still around. Its true that a good story will last generation after generation.
