The Lorax Earlier this year the team behind Despicable Me brought us this animated adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic, a sort of environmental cautionary tale against the dangers of consumerism set to a catchy musical score. Danny DeVito voices the Lorax, a forest creature who once presided over an idyllic valley home to fluffy pinwheel trees and cute critters, before a businessman paved it over for a synthetic city. Years later, a boy goes searching for the one last tree, and learns about what happened to the forest in the process. Extras: 3 mini-movies, featurettes on adapting Dr. Seuss, deleted scene, interactive features: a sing-along, Dr. Seuss drawing tutorial and several games (DVD/BD); the BD adds another game, funny commercials and an exploration of the Lorax's valley.

The original animated 'Grinch Who Stole Christmas' is the best adaptation from all of Dr Suess' books! It's a timeless holiday classic with vivid colors and a short enough run time that ensures kids don't lose interest. I really like that it's a sweet, morally uplifting and to-the-point story!
The Grinch is my favorite Seuss adaptation - I love the song, and how my heart swells when I see them singing around the Christmas tree.
The Lorax beacause of his moustache.

I loved Horton Hears a Who! Such a great message for both the young and old - everyone on this planet matters, no matter how big or small. My favorite character was Katie - best quote from the movie by far - "In my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies." :)
