Overview

Three of Theodor Geisel's most popular stories you may know him better as Dr. Seuss come to life in this animated video collection. In Daisy-Head Mayzie, a little girl named Mayzie discovers her life becomes quite complicated in many unexpected ways when a flower blooms from the top of her head. Horton Hatches The Egg finds endlessly loyal elephant Horton tricked into sitting on a nest for a bird flying south for the winter; Horton, despite the teasing of his friends, refuses to abandon the eggs placed in his trust. And the political parable The Butter Battle Book finds the rival communities of the Zooks and the Yooks at the brink of destroying each other over a vital philosophical issue: which is proper side of the bread on which to spread the butter. The Best Of Dr. Seuss was produced by animation groundbreaker Ralph Bakshi.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
We mean what we say and we say what we mean; this is the best Dr. Seuss video we've ever seen.Well maybe it's not his absolute best, considering all of the good doctor's rest. Can't really say best, can't really say that. There's no Grinch, no Yertle, no Cat in the Hat. But the three stories here aren't merely wordplay; each has a message, has something to say. "The Butter Battle Book" is a Cold War fable that parents should discuss with their kids if they're able. War escalates over butter on bread. Should it be on top or the bottom instead? That's what the Zooks and the Yerks fight about, and Seuss leaves the ending very much in doubt. "Daisy-Head Mayzie" is the second story's name; about a girl who gets fifteen minutes of fame. Poor Daisy-Head Mayzie is quite frequently teased; with a flower atop her head at which many have sneezed. "Horton Hatches the Egg" is Seuss at his best; about a faithful elephant who passes the test. Horton guards an egg for a superciliously selfish bird; and a pachyderm true, he keeps his word. Children love Seuss and his way with a rhyme, and they'll watch this video time after time.
