Blu-ray review: “Hats Off to Dr. Seuss Collector's Edition”

Five 1960s and '70s television adaptations of the good doctor's beloved books have been released to Blu-ray in the past few years, and the new collection compiles them into one slim volume.

While they remain more faithful to the slender books than the heavily padded movie versions, the TV adaptations unfortunately haven't been given the bonus materials they deserve. Except for the separate DVD copies, the compilation includes all the extras from the previous Blu-ray releases, including interactive puzzles, making-of featurettes, singalongs and the 1994 biographical TV movie “In Search of Dr. Seuss.”

Not surprisingly, though, the best bonus is more Seussian storytelling. Along with the main titles, the collection includes the additional animated shorts “The Butter Battle Book” (1989), Pontoffel Pock & His Magic Piano” (1980), “The Hoober-Bloob Highway” (1975) and “Daisy-Head Mayzie” (1995).
