Horrified Observers of Pedestrian Entertainment: Dr. Seuss : Ending the Energy Crisis




Dr. Seuss : Ending the Energy Crisis

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.Dr. Seuss made great books. Hollywood has made awful movies based on books by Dr. Seuss.

For many of you, The Grinch was a killing blow to many of your fond childhood memories. For others, it was the truly "some things you can't un-see" The Cat in the Hat. In case you have any fondness for the good doctor left, Horton Hears a Who should just about finish you off.

Horton Hears a Who (and the already optioned Horton Hatches an Egg) are being put together by Blue Sky Studios. Blue Sky themselves have a very pristine track record, but so did Mike Myers and Jim Carey at one time.

The rub: their adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic is being written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul, who earlier teamed to give us The Santa Clause 2 and Bubble Boy.

If only we could hook up some sort of turbine to the grave of Theodore Seuss Geisel, maybe we wouldn't have to worry about the Middle East. We could just keep asking studios to pump out substandard and terrible movies based on his delightful books. Then, as Dr. Seuss' body spun, we could harness the energy and power our homes.

We at H.O.P.E. give our heartfelt condolences to the family of the good doctor, and we hope that whatever money they've been paid makes a good mattress for when they cry themselves to sleep every night.
