Dr. Suess is a legend and has had an incredible impact on so many lives. I remember reading those books over and over again as a child and finding joy in them every time. I mean, there really is no better story on planet earth than How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It is a perfect story, especially for a child. It teaches you that there is good in everyone and all that nonsense. So happy birthday to the legend himself, Dr. Suess and may you never be disrespected like you were when in 2003, The Cat in the Hat movie was released.
I vividly remember going to a terrible movie theater located in the mall in Kingston, MA absolutely pumped to see the movie. Hell, I had read the book so many times growing up, obviously the movie would be just as awesome. I was wrong. Very wrong. My 14 year old head could comprehend how someone could take something so perfect and turn into an absolute shit-show. That is what director Bo Welch (never directed another film) and Mike Myers did to The Cat in the Hat. They managed to take the joy out of it and stomp on every child's imagination. So yes, Happy Birthday Dr. Suess and screw you Mike Myers.
