Dr. Seuss, being one of America's most famous authors, has had some of his books adapted into TV specials. Some of them have been dubbed internationally, with only a handful of dubs released to home video.

When the specials aired reruns on Cartoon Network in the mid-1990s, they were dubbed into Latin Spanish. One of the specials, Halloween is Grinch Night, was dubbed into German in the early 2000s. The first three DFE Dr. Seuss specials got a Latin Spanish redub when they were remastered in HD in 2012.

Half the number of dubs not released on any home media are deemed lost, and half of them resurfaced online, full or not.
