I remember doing a school project on Dr Seuss when I was in elementary school, in the project I learned that one of his first big jobs was in creating war propaganda. I didn't really understand what it all meant then, and now its just funny that I'm see these cartoons again. Propaganda can come in all shapes and seizes and from all kinds of people. Oh and did you know that he also directed a pro WWII film as well?.
