(6:00–6:30 PM ET/PT) Dr. Seuss On The Loose

(6:30–7:00 PM ET/PT) Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
In this Seuss tale, The Lorax “speaks for the trees” in a desperate effort to save his beloved “Truffula” forest from extinction. Arch enemy of the Truffula tree and its ambrosial fruit is the “Once-ler,” who covets the trees as the perfect material from which to manufacture his marvelous invention, the “Thneed,” defined as “a fine something that all people need!” When the ecological crisis becomes catastrophic, the one tiny surviving hope is a seed placed in the hands of a small boy.

(7:00–7:30 PM ET/PT) Dr. Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat
“Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat” tells the story of the adventure of two youngsters, housebound on a rainy day, whose boredom is shattered by a visit from the magical, mischievous Cat and his helpmates, Thing One and Thing Two. (Animated)

(7:30–8:00 PM ET/PT) Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Grinches The Cat In The Hat
As The Cat in the Hat gets ready for a lovely picnic, the evil Grinch plots to create a contraption that captures noise and turns it into ferocious sounds – which would absolutely ruin The Cat’s plan for an afternoon picnic. In the end, The Cat in the Hat must jump in to save the world from the clutches of the Grinch! Of course, the only way to make that happen is to get to Grinch’s soft spot. (Animated)

(8:00–10:30 PM ET/PT) Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas
He’s mean, he’s green, and he doesn’t like the Yuletide season one bit. Jim Carrey stars as the title character in this live-action adaptation of the classic children’s story by Dr. Seuss. High atop Mt. Crumpet, The Grinch observes the residents of Whoville joyously preparing to celebrate Christmas. He decides he’s had enough of all this happiness, and conspires to steal Christmas from Whoville! (Live Action)
