Behind-the-scenes information

Theodor Seuss Geisel (Born March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts) was the writer of many children books. Some of which included The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Horton Hears a Who, The Lorax, Green Eggs and Ham and many more.

Seuss passed away from oral cancer on September 24, 1991.


Hoping to have his name changed to something he deems cool, Verne Brown traveled back to some point in the 1800s to get his namesake, Jules Verne to change his name. One of the names he suggested was Dr. Seuss, though to no success.
