Good news everyone! Wait, no, bad news. Very bad. The people who made the CGI Horton Hears a Who and The Lorax movies are getting their hands on another Doctor Seuss tale, perhaps his most well-known aside from Cat in the Hat: the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Universal, why? I don’t see the need. Then again, it has a certain amount of guaranteed sales just due to the name. But while we’re on the topic of unnecessary entertainment, let’s also mention that Brett Ratner is making an animated Farmville TV show. He reportedly said “Farmville is one of the most exciting brands out there today,” which probably translates to “money? This is money, right? I could go for some of that.” Read more…

Dr. Seuss and Star Wars… who knew they could fit together so well? Jason Peltz, former Disney animator and freelance artist, made these awesome mashups featuring our favorite Star Wars characters as Dr. Seuss book covers, and they’re incredibly well done. He already had the featured pieces go up on Steal This Art a while ago, and the next one will show up October 4th, so pay attention to that site if you want a print for yourself! He also says the fifth piece is almost finished. Good stuff! Click through for more! Read more…

The Hutt in the Hatt?

Adam Watson's Seuss Does Star Wars 1

Ever imagine what Star Wars would look like through the eyes of Dr. Seuss? Me neither, but cartoonist Adam Watson has. Recently, he posted a few pieces of this brilliant mash-up on his blog and frankly, they’re nothing short of amazing. While he claims that these pieces started as doodles for the most the part, he apparently has a few more planned. I’d love to see him strike a deal with Lucas Arts to publish a book, but I imagine  there’d be all kind of legal hurdles involved. Either way, I think I’ll just cross my fingers and hope for more. Also, wouldn’t some of these make for a nifty t-shirt?    Read more…

The Cat in the Hat Comes to PBS

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 7, 2010 in Animation, Pulp Fiction

This is a sneak preview of the new series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! which is coming to PBS Kids in September. The show isn’t based on the original Dr. Seuss books but an education series of books that feature the cat explaining life, the universe and everything to kids. What I like about this show is that the animation studio did a nice job of staying true to the designs of the cat in the books.
