Musician Moby Shares 'Vegan' Dr. Seuss For The 21st Century

The post had mixed responses
Moby posted the 'alternative' cartoon on Instagram

Musician Moby has shared a doctored version of a Dr. Seuss cartoon - which he described as 'Dr Seuss for the 21st century'.

The cartoon - which riffs off Theodor Seuss Geisel's famous work - shows character Sam-I-am trying to make an unnamed character eat 'green eggs and ham'.

In the traditional cartoon, Sam-I-am asks: "Do you like green eggs and ham?"

The other character usually responds: "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-am."


But in this version of the cartoon, although the character still turns down the green eggs and ham, he has a different response.

He says: "No. I like animals.

"Plus I'm generally not a big fan of cancer and heart disease.

"Plus they are GREEN. What the f*** is wrong with you?"


Moby's followers had mixed responses to the cartoon.

Some liked it, with Teddieddie saying: "I thought that someone should make a vegan Dr. Seuss collection."

Prism_schism added: "Hahaha I always thought green eggs and ham sounded super nasty."

But some didn't appreciate the tweaks. Mansbryant: "Poor taste Moby. Leave Dr. Seuss alone."
