Hats Off to Dr. Seuss Blu-ray

Posted November 10, 2012 10:59 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. has announced the release of a 5-disc box set collecting The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs & Ham and Other Stories, The Lorax, Horton Hears a Who! and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The Hats Off to Dr. Seuss: Collector's Edition set kicks off Warner's celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Seuss' "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins" on February 19, 2013.

No technical specifications or additional special features have been announced, but every indication we've received thus far indicates that this is simply a bundle collecting the five previously released Dr. Seuss specials already available on Blu-ray:

    The Cat in the Hat: It's a rainy day at home and siblings Dick and Sally have nothing to do. But all of that changes when The Cat and his messy sidekicks, Thing One and Thing Two, burst onto the scene, bringing with them adventure and chaos much to the dismay of a worried pet goldfish. Then, The Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Daisy-Head Mayzie, a girl who mistakenly thinks that the flower blooming on her head will only bring trouble, but eventually propels her to fame and fortune. And finally, blast off to The Hoober-Bloob Highway, where every road from a space laboratory leads to EarthÖ and eventually to gratitude.

    Green Eggs & Ham and Other Stories: Join Sam-Am-I and his persistent attempts at introducing a reluctant fellow to a most delectable dish. Their escapades take them across a zany landscape while assembling a cast of characters that only the imagination of Dr. Seuss can bring to life. Will Sam-I-Am convince his new friend to take a chance and finally try something new? Find out in this timeless tale the whole family will enjoy. Then, meet The Sneetches, who teach us that being yourself is the best way to fit in, while the story of The Zax reminds us that there is nothing to gain from being stubborn.

    The Lorax: The award-winning tale of The Lorax tells the story of the greedy, tree-chopping Once-ler and his equally greedy, tree-chopping clan, the brave little Lorax who speaks up for the vanishing forest, and the boy who could right all the Once-ler's wrongs with a seed and a lesson learned. Then enjoy Pontoffel Pock, Where Are You? and Butter Battle Book, a pair of bonus Dr. Seuss television specials sure to delight.

    Horton Hears a Who!: Based on the 1954 book of the same name, the 1970 animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who tells the classic story of an elephant named Horton who just so happens to be the only creature capable of hearing the people of a tiny planet floating on a speck of dust. Or perhaps just the only creature who will listen long enough to hear them. Fully remastered, the special also features Horton Hatches the Egg!

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas: Every who down in Who-ville likes Christmas a lot, but the Grinch who lived just north of Who-ville did NOT! So the cuddly as a cactus Grinch (with termites in his smile and garlic in his soul) tries to wipe out Christmas for the cheerful Who-villains, only to discover: maybe Christmas, he thought doesn't come from as store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more! Narrated by Boris Karloff and animated by cartoon legend Chuck Jones, it's an award-winning Who-roast-beast-feast of a holiday classic.

Nice, luckily I only ever bought Horton. Too bad it doesn't have all of the specials though (it's missing Halloween Is Grinch Night and The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat), and all of the extra specials are SD.

This is a really cool idea and will make the specials more affordable than if bought separately (like the Peanuts three BD set)...

the individual releases include BOTH DVD and BLU and can be purchase for closer to $10-$12 each. that is about $50-$60

This new release sells the BLUs and DVD separately for closer to $100 retail and $80 discounted on Amazon.

This is Not a good deal at all for anyone with kids that might acually appreciate and use the DVD and BLU both.

I personally purchased several of the individual release used but like new for $7-$8on Amazon.

Again, this is a terrible deal if you are interested in having copies of the Blus AND the DVDs both.

I haven't been interested in having a DVD copy of ANYTHING since I bought a BD player.

Yes, $42 on Amazon for blu Ray only.

As my post details, they are selling the BLu, DVD and digital copies ( via itunes) all separately now.

It is just my opinion, but if there was ever a set that I might want to have both BLus and DVD it would be a Dr. Seuss set.
So I am pointing out this is not a good seal for families that enjoy the multiformat.

Personally I will alway pull the blu ray out to watch but I think we are along way off to having blu ray in mini vans for kids and ble rays players in all room of the house for kids .

Oh Warner... Why is this a 5-disc set? Everything here could fit quite easily onto one or two discs.
