Classic Dr. Seuss!,
This review is from: Dr. Seuss - Green Eggs and Ham and Other Favorites (Grinch Night) (DVD)
Three out of the four cartoons on this DVD run at about 10-15 minutes average length. While the fourth (Halloween Night is Grinch Night), runs at about 20-30 minutes. So all in all, you are getting around 52 minutes worth of Dr. Seuss entertainment, which really isn't all that bad.
Green Eggs and Ham- A decent cartoon but with it being based off of a book, it seems to kinda get on your nerves after a while with all of the rhythms and rhymes. But not too bad. The sound is top notch on the DVD but the color seems to be kinda bland.
The Zax- The shortest of the cartoons on the DVD, this one is pretty entertaining even though it is extremely short. The coloring and sound are great!
The Sneetches- My second favorite cartoon on the DVD. A story that has a true message to it. Sound is good and the color is pretty much intact but there are a few scenes where the color seems to have faded a little.
Halloween Night is Grinch Night- One of my all-time favorite Dr. Seuss cartoons! The creatures in the story are kinda creepy and it is very appropriate for Halloween, hence the title. This is obviously the longest cartoon since it was made for CBS back in the early seventies I believe. This one seems to be absolutely intact with sound and coloring.
Overall, while the only thing that seems to be suffering the most from these four cartoons is the fading of colors. But it's not the DVD's fault. These films were made back in the sixities and seventies and have been shown many times on television since their creation. I am surprised that their condition is not as worse as shown on the DVD. Definitely worth the money if you're a Dr. Seuss fan!
