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.
