Editorial Reviews

A lesson for all, a lesson indeed. Listen to the Lorax, he speaks for the trees! In a place where the Brown Bar-ba-loots frisk about and the Humming-Fish splash around, you will find the Lorax. The Lorax speaks for the trees, which the Onceler is chopping down as fast as he pleases. Will the Onceler change his destructive ways and heed the wise warnings of the Lorax? With the help of a young boy and the very last Truffula Tree seed – the Onceler may still be able to right his wrongdoings. Share in this newly remastered Dr. Seuss tale that teaches us all to appreciate and respect the world we live in!

5.0 out of 5 stars this isn't the 2012 edidtion July 16, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is the original version with the great 1970s animation that I remember watching in school as a kid. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's not at least as good as the new one- for what it's worth, the version has the better rating on rottentomatoes

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic movie from the 70's, the original! July 10, 2012
By Jeff M
Format:Amazon Instant Video
No, it is not the new version, that one comes out in August 2012 from what I just read in 30 seconds, and this one says release year 1972.

This one is an excellent movie, right down to the real reason we had such movies, to impress upon our youth the morals and life lessons that would serve them as they grow up (and tone down their bratty-ness while we tried to raise them ;). Wholesome viewing seems to be (greedily) replaced by so much, whatever is selling, such as; reality shows, snapping bones, all sorts of violence, as well Special FX and zero-heroes to replace a well done script. This is one example of what was good - watching a story unfold and feeling the connection that all kids (and even adults) have, and the ability to relate to, and appreciate; the values of right and wrong, and of course; wisdom.

Format:Blu-ray
Warner's re-releasing the 1972 version of the classic (25 min) film based on Dr. Seuss' film is a plus for all of us. The story is timeless - the lesson of greed vs. environment. This version is narrated by Eddie Albert and stars Bob Holt as the voice of both The Lorax and The Once-ler. Our favorite images of the Truffula Trees and the Thneeds are all there. I remember when this was first released, at a time before Earth Day was celebrated and environmentalism was in its infancy. I highly recommend this film for any family DVD collection.

Here is what one of our youth critics have to say: The Lorax is a wonderful film based off of the beloved Dr. Seuss book. It shows the story of a greedy Once-ler who only thinks of himself and in his selfishness he destroys the Truffula trees. The Lorax, who speaks for the trees, tries his hardest to save the land and its inhabitance, but will his pleas be enough to stop the tyrant Once-ler? I enjoyed this film very much and I thought the cinematography was wonderful because it is exactly like the illustrations in the Dr. Seuss book. Being able to see the world through the creative eyes of Dr. Seuss is wonderful and now you can, better than ever, with the deluxe edition of The Lorax including an Ultra Violet copy of the movie. This movie delivers fantastic messages about caring for the environment and respecting the earth we live on. I like the Lorax character most because he stands up for the land and teaches that being greedy and self-centered leads to destruction. I loved all of the music in The Lorax and I especially liked the first scene when you see the land in all of its splendid glory. I give The Lorax 4 out of 5 stars for its strong messages and great classic entertainment. I suggest this film for ages 4 to 10. Raven D, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

5.0 out of 5 stars over consumption equals destruction March 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
That is the very obvious moral in this story, Told in the traditional Dr. Suess rhyme. We are all guilty of over consumption, and the need to have what is the most new and improved, so much so we are depleting our natural resources. But, you don't have to be an environmental activist to understand the simple message that is being presented here.

5.0 out of 5 stars original 1973 version runs about 25 minutes February 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used this movie with my high school biology class during a discussion of evolution and asked them to find an example of each of the mechanisms of evolution (selection, mutation, migration, and genetic drift). It was a fun activity and a break from the usual routine.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste.
Black and white cartoon. A short television version. Not what the kids saw in the movies. They lost interest quickly.

Perfect for teaching ecology and so much better than the new movie out. This one is only 25 minutes long and will easily fit into a class period when teaching. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, old time classics
Always a good way to teach children about the environment. The children love it so much they don't realize they are learning to care for our planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's nothing like a classic
No, I haven't seen the new version, and just as with The Grinch, will definitely prefer the Dr. Seuss original. Classic Lorax is catchy, clever, and sticks with you. Love it.
