Dr. Seuss on the Loose

Animated Special consisting of three Dr. Seuss tales.

The Sneetches

Two kind of sneetches lived on the beaches, the plain-belly and the star-belly sneetches. The Star-belly sneetches had the idea that they were the greater kind of sneetches and shunned the plain-belly sneetches at their parties on the beaches. However one day, a travelling saleman named Sylvester McMonkey McBean arrives on the scene, offering the plain-belly sneetches a star on their bellies as part of a scheme.

The Zax

A north-going Zax and a south-going Zax, meet with a bump. The two Zax both refuse to move one inch to the side, standing in the others way, day after day, year after year.
