Puts 2012 Movie to Shame

Let's compare this to the 2012 movie, shall we:

Budget: 1972 version: Probably under $1,000

2012 version: $70 million

Runtime: 1972 version: 25 mins

2012 version: 1 hour 35 mins

Animation: 1972 Version: Hand-drawn

2012 version: Computer animated

Well, strangely enough, with enough effort, a movie with 1/70,000th the budget of a kid's sellout movie, surpasses it in every way imaginable. The 1972 version really has a message. While the 2012 version seems to avoid the actual 'we need to help the environment' theme, the 1972 version shows that we are not doing enough to do so. It has a meaning, and therefore gives everyone a reason to watch it. Watching it did not make you feel like you were being subjected to an advertising sellout and made you really think about the environment as a whole. I think the 1972 version is a brilliant masterpiece, that did justice to Dr Seuss' work. The 2012 version however, stuck the Lorax on a Mazda advertisement. This just shows how much the 1972 version respected the source material compared to the 2012 version, and why it remains a masterpiece.

lacks the fun of Seuss

In an environmental wasteland, a boy meets the old Once-ler on The Street of the Lifted Lorax. He recalls the story of coming to the paradise in his wagon. He finds the wonders of the tuffs of the truffula trees and uses it to make Thneeds. The Lorax confronts him speaking for the trees. However he refuses to listen as he gains great wealth cutting down all the truffula trees.

The darker 'real world' subject matter takes much of the magic of the usual Seuss world. It could be argued to be an important story but it's not a fun story. It's also leaves tons of questions like why doesn't the Once-ler plant trees himself. There is a much better animated environmental movie called 'The Man Who Planted Trees'. I recommend that before this.

Enviro-hippie propaganda but better than the 2012 movie

When a little boy living in what appears to be a polluted brownfield pays a visit to a lonely and depressed industrialist, called the Once-ler, he tells the boy a story of how he polluted the earth cut down every last tree and drove the animals away, much to the annoyance of some sort of tree creature called the Lorax.

This was made in 1972 around the time Silent Spring by Racheal Carson had come out, and around the time of the Love Canal disaster and the beginning of the environmental movement, so it's mostly a load of hippie propaganda making out businesses, factories and industry to be evil. And what's wrong with pollution, I love pollution, who cares about the planet? I litter, pour chemicals, don't ever recycle, and I'm proud of it! However, the difference between this and the 2012 animated film is that the animation was better, the voice acting is better, the characters are more planned out and rather than inserting crude humor and romance they stick to the book with this one.

It is rather biased and one-sided, but it's not a bad cartoon for kids. But you know what would be nice? If nature and pollution could co-exist with none of this crazy hippie extremism.
