Movie Review: Dr Seuss' The Sneetches Full Version YouTube

This is one of Dr. Seuss' more important works.  In this movie he explores prejudice and bias.  The star-bellied sneetches feel they are superior.  The look down upon those sneetches without stars, feel their children should not play with them, and try to exclude them from their activities including bonfires on the beech.  They are determined to keep their differentness, even if they go broke trying to maintain it.  It is only after they go broke that the learn the lesson, that a sneetch is a sneetch no matter whether he has stars on his belly, or his butt or none at all and they should treat each other with respect.  I think that is an important lesson.
