Dr. Seuss, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Cartoons

Given our commitment to play here at Ziksana, we feel it behooves us to devote a moment to honoring the birthday of one of history’s most influential and playful children’s authors: Dr. Seuss.

Now, many are aware that Dr. Seuss was, in fact, a pen name: his full name was Theodore Seuss Geisel. However, what most people are not aware of is how he came by his pen name: when Geisel was a student at Dartmouth College in the 20’s, he was caught drinking gin in his room with a few friends. Because drinking alcohol was legally prohibited by prohibition, the administration made him withdraw from his extracurricular activities instead of expelling him. In order to continue drawing for Dartmouth’s humor magazine, he began submitting work under his mother’s maiden name.

Although his children’s books are what he’s most famous for, they are not, in fact, what he did when he was first starting out: when he was studying at Oxford, and after moving back to the US during World War Two, Dr. Seuss became very well-known and was able to support himself and his wife as a political cartoonist. Because of this, Theodore Seuss Geisel epitomized the idea of finding fun in even the most desperate situations.

It wasn’t until after the war, when he and his wife settled in California, that Dr. Seuss began writing his most famous books, including The Cat In The Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Although Dr. Seuss never had children himself, he always understood them and is quoted as having said about children: “You have ‘em: I’ll entertain ‘em.”

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and because our company is based where he wrote so many of his most famous books, we here at Ziksana invite you to find out which Dr. Seuss character you’re most like: just take the buzzfeed quiz linked here and comment below! And in the words of the good doctor (he received an honorary doctorate from Dartmouth during World War II, so he actually was a doctor) “it’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how.”
