Dr. Seuss documentary

Here's a documentary on Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, author of zany classics like "Cat in the Hat." (link to video) The quality isn't great on the video transfer, but it's an interesting view of what inspired him and how he approached writing and illustrating children's books.

...and if Dr. Seuss isn't your cup of tea, you might enjoy this 1987 BBC profile of Robert Crumb, made seven years before the more famous Terry Zwigoff documentary.

At 52 minutes in, don't miss the video of Crumb trying to do a plein air painting on a freeway onramp.
