8 clips from The Lorax make us sad, but not for the trees

These eight clips from the mangled Dr. Seuss Lorax translation fill us with so many emotions. On one hand, it's gorgeous. The Truffula Tree forrest is simply stunning, and the Humming Fish are supremely adorable. But that is where it stops.

The plot moves forward, and we get to meet the Once-ler's extended family (faces and all). Surprise, surprise — his clan arrives in an RV with thick Southern accents. We just don't...why...why does the Once-ler have an electric guitar? Perhaps we're all just old farts who like to keep kissing tweens out of our Dr. Seuss storylines — but for us it just feels wrong.
