What's the story?
THE WUBBULOUS WORLD OF DR. SEUSS (1997-1998) is a series featuring Jim Henson-created puppets based on Dr. Seuss characters. The Cat in the Hat (Bruce Lanoil) joins the Grinch (Anthony Asbury), Horton (John Kennedy), Yertle (also voiced by Asbury), and the rest of the folks who live in Seussville to have adventures, learn new things, and have fun.
Is it any good?
This mild series mixes stories, singing, and adventure as The Cat and his friends plan picnics, watch a local holiday pageant, and clean up after themselves. Adding to the fray are scenes that combine some 2D animation. But while the puppets feel familiar and there are lots of social and emotional lessons to be had, the overall show feels a little dated, especially compared to later film and TV versions of Dr. Seuss tales. Nonetheless, The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss is a lively, colorful show that will appeal to young children.
