Episode 18 – The Lorax (1:16:13)

Happy Earth Day everyone!  We love the Earth, and that compels us to call out Dr. Seuss and the Lorax as propaganda for the biggest polluter on the planet – government.

Special guest, Kevin LeCureux joins us for a lively discussion on the book, the 1972 TV special and the 2012 CGI film with Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Taylor Swift, Betty White and Danny DeVito.

Marketed (even though marketing is apparently evil) as:

The imaginative world of Dr. Seuss comes to life like never before in this visually spectacular adventure from the creators of Despicable Me! Twelve-year-old Ted will do anything to find a real live Truffula Tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. As he embarks on his journey, Ted discovers the incredible story of the Lorax, a grumpy but charming creature who speaks for the trees. Featuring the voice talents of Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle, Jenny Slate, and Betty White, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is filled with hilarious fun for everyone!

What is really is:  Statist Propaganda
