Dr. Seuss

Biography

Pulitzer Reward and Academy Award-winning article writer/illustrator Dr. Seuss (1904-1991) a.k.a. Theodore Geisel produced a few of the most well-known and long lasting children’s books from the 20th hundred years. After going to Dartmouth and Oxford University or college and doing work for a period in marketing, he released his first publication, 1937’s ALSO TO BELIEVE THAT I Noticed It On Mulberry Road, which launched his wonderful illustrations and innovative however easy-to-read rhymes. During the period of over 40 additional books, Seuss informed whimsical modern-day fables and explored sociable issues like the environment within the Lorax, discrimination within the Sneetches and equality in Yertle The Turtle. One of is own most popular tales, 1957’s The Kitty WITHIN THE Hat, started Random House’s “Newbie Books” series, which combined lively illustrations with lively stories and noises to teach fundamental reading skills. Likewise, a lot of Seuss’ preferred books had been translated into cartoon TV special offers — like the Cat within the Hat, Green Eggs & Ham, Horton Hears a Who and The way the Grinch Stole Xmas — in addition to audiobooks and albums like the Cat WITHIN THE Hat Songbook/If I Went The Zoo and Fox In Socks/Horton Hatches The Egg. Also after his loss of life in 1991, Seuss continued to be among the best-selling & most revered children’s writers in history.

#Fact
1 Although famous for the social and moral messages of his books, he usually didn't write his books with morals in mind. He preferred to let it grow out from the story, saying "A kid can see a moral coming a mile away.".
2 Partially based the character of The Grinch on himself as his house and studio were on a hill in California and, every Christmas, he would look down in disgust at all the cheesy decorations and lights adorning the houses below.
3 He was a chain smoker and casual drinker.
4 The film adaptation of ''The Lorax (2012)'' was released on what would have been his 108th birthday.
5 Despite the famous line from ''Horton Hears A Who'' "A person's a person no matter how small" being used as a slogan by Pro-Life movements, Seuss himself was a supporter of Reproductive rights and his widow has threatened lawsuits against groups that use it in campaigns.
6 Was a lifelong liberal Democrat and a supporter of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal.
7 One night while riding home on a train, Seuss saw a pompous, stuffy-looking man with a hat on his head. Seuss wondered what would happen if someone were to knock the hat off his head and then realized the man was so full of himself that another hat would probably appear on his head as a replacement. This inspired Seuss to write "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.".
8 Wrote and drew political cartoons in the 1940's.
9 In the late 1980s, he wanted to get his book "The Cat In The Hat" made into a movie, his choices for the role of the title character were Robin Williams, Steve Martin, John Candy, or Eddie Murphy. In 2003, his book was made into a movie with none of those playing the title character.
10 Wrote "Green Eggs and Ham" on a bet to write a book with 50 words or less.
11 The music for "The Cat in the Hat Song Book," a book of Seuss-penned lyrics with music for young singers published by Random House, was written by Eugene Poddany.
12 Was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon national fraternity (New Hampshire Alpha chapter - Dartmouth College).
13 As a schoolboy during World War I, his classmates nicknamed him "The Kaiser" due to his German ancestry.
14 During World War II, Geisel joined the US Army and was sent to Hollywood. Captain Geisel would write for Frank Capra's Signal Corps Unit (for which he won the Legion of Merit) and do documentaries. Geisel recieved an Academy Award (Oscar) for Best Documentary (Short Subject) in 1945 for his writing and production of the propaganda piece Hitler Lives (1945) (a/k/a Your Job in Germany (1945) and in 1947 for Best Documentary (Feature) for Design for Death (1947)).
15 Biography/bibliography in: "Contemporary Authors." New Revision Series, Vol. 132, pp. 162-167 (as Theodor Seuss Geisel). Farmington Hills, MI: Thomson Gale, 2005.
16 During the early 1940s, he was a political cartoonist for PM, a daily News York newspaper that was noted for its left-wing politics, superior production quality and the fact that it carried no advertising. A book of his political cartoons was published a few years ago.
17 The University of California, San Diego renamed its main library in 1995 to the Geisel Library in honor of Audrey and Theodor Geisel, both La Jolla residents. The library maintains a 8,500 item collection of the works of Dr. Seuss, with items ranging from 1919 to 1991.
18 Received his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame to commemorate what would have been his 100th birthday. (March 2004)
19 His Cat in the Hat is shown on a USA 33¢ commemorative postage stamp, in the sheet of stamps commemorating the 1950s in the Celebrate the Century Series, issued 26 May 1999. The inscription reads "Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat".
20 Pictured on a USA 37¢ commemorative postage stamp, issued 2 march 2004 (100th anniversary of birth). The stamp also depicts six characters created by Seuss: the Cat in the Hat; the Grinch; the Glotz (or the identical Klotz) from the book "Oh Say Can You Say?" and three characters from the book "I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew," the Skritz, the unnamed "young fellow," and the Skrink.
21 Supposedly wrote "Green Eggs and Ham" on a bet with His publisher, Bennett Cerf to write a book with only 50 words in writing a book. Published in 1957, "Cat in the Hat" became Dr. Seuss's all-time biggest seller. The following year, Seuss, Cerf, and Cerf's wife, inspired by the books' success, began the Beginner Books series that continues to the present day, with entertaining, elementary-level books by Seuss and other authors.
22 Seuss (his mother's maiden name) is pronounced to rhyme with "voice." Not with "loose" as it commonly is.
23 Was a recluse, spending much of his time alone in his studio.
24 Of his many works, only four could truly be called political. "The Lorax" was an parable on short-sighted exploitation of natural resources, "The Butter Battle Book" was a commentary on the arms race, "The Sneetches" dealt with racism and "Yertle the Turtle" himself was representative of Hitler and the Third Reich.
25 Attended Oxford University, 1926-1928.
26 In 1942, he was placed in charge of the Animation Division of the Armed Forces Motion Picture unit by Colonel Frank Capra. Under his administration, a series of instructional cartoons featuring the character Private Snafu (an unofficial acronym for "Situation Normal, All [Fouled] Up") were produced from 1942 to 1945. Snafu's concept and name were created by Capra, and the character designed by Arthur Heinemann & Chuck Jones. Interestingly enough, the voice of Pvt. Snafu is none other than Mel Blanc, the voice of most of the characters from the Warner Brothers stable. The cartoons were animated by Warner Bros., United Productions of America (UPA), and Harman-Ising Studios. The films had a unique saltiness to dialog and content (with the occasional "Hell" or "Damn"), but since these were instructional films made for the biweekly "Army-Navy Screen Magazine" newsreel, they were exempt from Hayes Office restrictions. Although uncredited, Seuss wrote a few of the cartoons, since much of the dialog is written in "Seussian" rhyme, and several characters resemble the illustrations from his books. A second series of instructional cartoons for the Navy, featuring Private Snafu's brother, Seaman Tarfu (an acronym for "Things Are Really [Fouled] Up"), was planned, but the end of WWII brought an end to the series, and only one of these shorts was produced. 24 Private Snafu shorts were produced in total.
27 Worked as a commercial artist and was known for his humorous spot drawings for many Standard Oil products, most famously Flit bug spray.
28 His first children's book, "And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street" (1937), was rejected by over 20 publishers.
29 Two of his works have been translated into Latin: "The Cat in the Hat" ("Cattus Petasatus") and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" ("Quomodo Invidiosulus Nomine Grinchus Christi Natalem Abrogaverit").
30 An unpublished 1973 manuscript for "My Many-Colored Days" had no illustrations. Dr. Seuss wrote what he hoped "a great color artist who will not be dominated by me" would illustrate the book, with a new art style and pattern of thinking. The book was published in 1999 with abstract artwork by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher.
31 Before working on the children's books that would make him world famous, he made scuptures of fantastic animals in the form of taxidermist-mounted heads. Some of the creatures' surreal details would later appear in illustrations in his later books.
32 Never had any children of his own.

#Quote
1 [on how he created the Grinch] I was brushing my teeth on the morning of the 26th of last December when I noticed a very Grinch-ish countenance in the mirror. It was Seuss! So I wrote about my sour friend, the Grinch, to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously I'd lost.
2 Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
3 You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go.
4 Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
5 Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn't come from a store.
6 Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
7 A person's a person, no matter how small.
8 Adults are obsolete children.
9 I meant what I said and I said what I meant.
10 Fun is good.
11 Preachers in pulpits talked about what a great message is in the book. No matter what you do, somebody always imputes meaning into your books.
12 When at last we are sure, You've been properly pilled, Then a few paper forms, Must be properly filled. So that you and your heirs, May be properly billed.
13 I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments.
14 How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?
15 Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
16 You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.
17 You're in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.
18 From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
19 Today is your day, your mountain is waiting, so get on your way.
20 If I were invited to a dinner party with my characters, I wouldn't show up.
21 Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
22 On the false rumor that he disliked children, his remark in return was: Well, like anyone you know, there are good kids and there are creeps. And I like the good ones and I don't like the creeps.
23 Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
24 (When asked why he was not a father of any children, his remark was) You keep having kids, I'll keep writing books for them.
25 I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

1 He expresses his views in social and political issues in his own books (e.g. The Lorax, The Sneetches, The Butter Battle Book, Yertle the Turtle, The Grinch, & Horton Hears a Who).
