Dr. Seuss, what a kook.
The only feature film written by the man who gave us countless memorable books, it’s a wild day-glo fantasy about a young boy dodging an evil piano teacher.
Box office receipts were miniscule, critics didn’t “get it,” and Dr. Seuss, who originally wrote a 1,200(!) page script, erased the movie from his biography.
Which proves you can be a genius, and still be kind of dumb at times.
Seen today, the film is super-inventive, kinda creepy, and a lot of fun.
Plus, it gave us the “Happy Fingers” hat seen in the photo, so, bonus.
