7 adaptations of Dr. Seuss's stories

As "The Lorax" arrives in theaters this weekend, here are seven previous Seuss film adaptations – the good and the bad.

2. 'Horton Hears A Who!'


The 1970 TV special about an elephant who discovers people living on a dust speck was directed by "Grinch" director Chuck Jones, a friend and former Army compatriot of Dr. Seuss's, and also received positive reviews. Voice actor Hans Conried, who played Horton, the narrator and Dr. H. Hoovey, also voiced Captain Hook in the 1953 Disney animated film "Peter Pan." If the special's song "Be Kind to Your Small Person Friends" sounds familiar, it's because it's set to the tune of "Stars and Stripes Forever."
