This storybook adaptaton of Dr. Seuss's posthumously discovered dramatization ties in with TNT's half-hour TV special. Fully animated by Hanna-Barbera, the Daisy-Head Mayzie characters on TV were inspired by and based on Dr. Seuss's own pencil sketches. The story of how little Mayzie learns that love is more important than fame and fortune makes an endearing morality tale for our time--for all ages. Full color.
