* NOW WITH ADDED SOUND EFFECTS!* (thanks reviewers)
WOW FRONTPAGE!! THANKS, we'd nearly given up hope! Thank you so much ^_^
Thanks fo these great reviews and daily fourth! we'll try to respond to as many as we can!
There's a couple reviews debating the naming of the animation or antagonist, apologies for not making it clear;
As the cat in the hat was the only character in the movie relating to Dr Seuss, we felt it was fitting that he should be the embodiment of the name. We used the Cat in the Hat (possibly the most recognisable of Dr. Seuss' creations) as a representative, we are well aware that they are separate people/things/pseudonyms. Sorry for that confusion! :)

Doctor Seuss. Oh, really? Doctor of what, might I ask? Well, I did ask. And this is what I came up with.

After doodling up a quick script and finding some voice talent at the Voice Acting Club, I entrusted the rest of the project to TheThingy5, who promptly animated for months and months while I sat on my butt playing Bombliss on the NES. Occasionally, I'd forget all about this project. But now it's complete, and I'm absolutely thrilled. I'll stop talking soon because no one wants to spend more time reading the description than watching the animation, but first I just want to give a huge thanks to TheThingy5 and all of our wonderful voice actors, without whom this animation wouldn't exist. Hooray for them!

Firstly i'd just like to apologise for the scruffiness of the first minute or so of the animation, i was trying out a new style and it took a while to get used to.
You can adjust the quality by right clicking the flash, this is because the beginning is especially graphically heavy and may lag.
The total frames are 6898 at 24 fps and run time is about 4 mins.
Anyway it was a real pleasure to work on such a fantastic script by DarkLink and with the brilliant talent of all the actors, I hope i've done it justice.
BTW there IS an easter egg at the end! if you can find it ;)

Funny, but one thing...

Dr. Seuss WAS a fucking doctor. He might have worked in the obscure field of speech therapy, but he was still a doctor Apart from that, pretty good


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This should be rated M for all that blood

I hate Dr. Seuss. He's a sad excuse for a poet. Also, the Cat in the Hat isn't Seuss himself. Oh, and I think I'm going to have nightmares for a week. But great concept otherwise!

Incredible animation

But the voice acting was really unfitting and I didn't buy it for a second, none of the voices were fitting for any of the characters nor in the situation nor the room (reverb is your friend).

Nice, but didn't like the poetry

The animation was great - way above Newground standards!
However, I really dislike it when people try to recreate Dr. Suess storytelling, because it's just can't be done and besides, I found the script very long-winded.
Overall, great work though, I'll have to check out some of your other flashes now.
