Before I go to bed I thought I’d go ahead and introduce you guys to MY first Once-ler.
This fuzzy-armed guy is from In Search of Dr. Seuss, a documentary on the life and times of the genius–his career history, his hardships, his views–accompanied by shortened versions of the Seuss short films.
This documentary is pretty much the reason I started 72. Admittedly I did not read Suess growing up, nor did I own the movies. I just had this documentary. I loved the Once-ler’s bit the most because it was so suddenly mellow and dark compared to the rest of the documentary. Then there was this guy–with his long, gloved arms, his yellow eyes, his soft voice–Just…fkeajtj
Er…what were we talking about again…..?
Anyway, the documentary is really really great and I’ll stream it for you guys some day! It’s super dorky and fun and colorful and just everything that’s spectacular about Seuss. I hope that you guys enjoy it as much as I do and did when I was a kid.
