Kaptain Kristian’s latest explainer video is a fun one: he explains how the anapestic tetrameter rhyming style of Dr. Seuss helped us better understand language as kids, all while rhyming in the video himself. It’s stupid catchy (obviously, because it’s done in the style of Dr. Seuss) and so easy to listen to, which…
When Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, passed away in 1991, he left behind a few manuscripts that were nearly finished. One of those manuscripts, What Pet Should I Get? is currently being colored and will be posthumously published this coming July.
Why is slime, specifically snot-like green slime of the "I've-been-slimed!" variety, so endlessly fascinating? This impressively detailed article traces the history and lasting appeal of the gloriously gross substance, from Dr. Seuss to the Ghostbusters, Ninja Turtles to Nickelodeon, and beyond.
Doctors Who and Seuss blend together in a new work by Seussian mashup maestro DrFaustusAU. Oh, the times and places they'll go!
This video of Gaiman reading Dr. Seuss's iconic children's book, just posted to his blog, is one of the best things we've seen all week.
You only wish you could get dressed with one 1/100th as much frenzied panache as Dr. Terwilliger in this insane musical number from the 1953 Dr. Seuss movie The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T. Seriously, just when you think it's gone too far... it goes farther.
If Dr. Seuss created Jurassic Park, it would probably look (and sound) a lot like this bananas creation Seusstastic Park. Behold, all the stripey wonder!
We know lots of little details about Steven Spielberg's E.T.'s (like the fact that E.T. the creature is neither male or female). But we never knew about the connection between E.T. and Dr. Seuss — until we got a glimpse of this vintage concept art.
Why didn't we grow up reading The Very Hungry Galactus or Are you there, God? It's me, Rogue? Over at Comics Should Be Good, artists are filling in the gaps in our childhood libraries by reimagining classic books with superheroes and villains.
After the rage-inducing financial success of The Lorax, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures is apparently on a mission to ensure that Dr. Seuss' most popular books all know the touch of CG. The next Seussian project on their slate is another remake of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Mr. Grinch's…
That is to say: If Dr. Seuss books were titled like academic journal articles, they'd probably look a lot like this. They'd also never get read. Sort of like academic journal articles.
Want to introduce your early reader to the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft? Thanks to R.J. Ivankovic (DrFaustusAu)'s interpretation of Lovecraft's "The Tomb" in the style of Dr. Seuss, it's never too early for children to learn about insanity, hedonism, forbidden knowledge, and an overwhelming obsession with death.
For those of you who grew up with such classics as Green Eggs and Ham and Horton Hears A Who, these World War II editorial cartoons by Theodor Geisel may take you by surprise. This wasn't a dalliance for Seuss either — the illustrator was a prolific newspaper contributor during the early 1940s.
The always wonderful DrFaustusAU is back to his Dr. Seussian hijinks, this time giving some of Star Wars' less celebrated character the limelight and a little rhyme.
Yertle the Turtle quotes were banned from the classroom in a small British Columbia town, after the Seussian character's words were used in protest by the teachers union.
What do you do when your Dr. Seuss adaptation makes a ton of dough at the box office? Make another one! Universal is wasting no time in lining up the next big-screen Seussfest, but this time they're going with a property they've already demolished: The Cat and the Hat.
The Lorax is everything it claims to be against. It's plastic. It's fake. It's utterly disposable. It has no love in its heart for nature, or for anything else. They took one of Dr. Seuss' most famous books and turned it into a dull comedy, full of tedious pop-culture in-jokes and bland songs. Interspersed with…
Hollywood's latest Dr. Seuss movie adaptation, The Lorax, has been accused of brain washing our kids against capitalism and later put the Lorax himself to work peddling SUVs. Hollywood didn't just miss the point of The Lorax, they lit his mustache on fire just to watch the yellow fellow burn. Then again, it's kind of…
Sculptor Carl Turner has created a series of half-realistic, half-fantastical mounted animal heads that were seemingly poached out of a Dr. Seuss book. According to Turner's back story for this project, these extinct specimens were acquired by zoologist Erasmus P. Jiggins and Sir Bartholomew Scoffer during an 1863…
