The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss Review

"..So what exactly is The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss? It is not based on any set Dr. Seuss book. Rather, it is a Jim Henson Entertainment production that uses many Seuss characters in original stories. The program debuted on Nickelodeon in 1996 and ended its run in 2001. It won several Emmys and received mostly positive reviews…This may be the best treatment of Seuss on film since the Chuck Jones classics of the late 1960s. It captures the look and feel of his work so well that it's a shame more people don't know about it. The program earned respectable ratings, but Nickelodeon pulled the plug after four seasons for reasons that remain unclear.

Animation has been the medium of choice for Seuss adaptations, some good (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Horton Hears A Who), many bad (The Hoober Bloob Highway, Pontoffel Pock). Live action has been problematic, with the results being particularly awful but extremely profitable (but then again, Scooby-Doo was a hit). Brian Henson and his Muppeteers took a different approach with The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss. By using Muppets instead of animation, they managed to give it a three-dimensional feel that the two Universal features lack. Also, there is humanity that the features lack; I used to believe the Muppets were real, breathing creatures as a child; in a way, I still do feel that way, even though I know they're felt and foam. It's hard to explain.

The program is just plain fun. It creates new stories using the classic characters. That in itself was risky but they managed to succeed where many others have failed. It has energy and vitality, Kids will love the zany characters and lively action. Adults will love the stories and performances of the devoted Muppeteers who have turned puppeteering into a high art." DVD Verdict
