The best Dr. Seuss movies of all time

Dr. Seuss movies guarantee an entertaining night in with the family, and that's truer than true

Written by

Dr. Seuss movies prove that "From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere!" 

The children's author and illustrator (whose real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel) has enchanted generations and garnered recognition for some of the best children's books and best kids' movies out there. Thanks to his infectious rhymes, extraordinary characters and charming tales, we can't help but encourage a Seussical movie marathon! 

From remastered classics to old-school stories, our favorite Dr. Seuss movies include a bit of everything—The Cat in the Hat, The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T, The Lorax, to name a few. In honor of the legend's March 2 birthday, we certainly think a flick or two will make the celebration all the more sweet. 

For superfans, there are "Great things you can find if you don't stay behind." One of the best family weekend getaways is a visit to The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Massachusetts.

Enjoy all-things Seuss!

Best Dr. Seuss movies for families


Bart knew there was something funky about his piano teacher, Dr. Terwilliker—he just couldn't put his finger on it. When Bart enters an alternate universe, he becomes responsible—oddly enough, alongside his local plumber—for stopping Mr. T from forcing 500 boys to play the piano and hypnotizing his mother. Rated G. (, $13)


9. Halloween Is Grinch Night (1977)

If you thought the Grinch only had his sights set on Christmas, you're sadly mistaken. In this TV short from the '70s, our holiday bah humbug tries to set Halloween aflame. Rating not available.
