    It's more American but I'm astounded you've never heard tell of The Cat in the Hat, The Grinch and Horton Hears a Who, all of which were made into mildly successful, if incredibly annoying, film versions during the past decade.
    The Grinch is an amazing film, don't diss hahaah

    How can you not have heard of Dr Seuss? Do you live in a cave?
    I read quite a few of the books when I was younger. But even then "grinch" is used all the time nowadays. You must have heard of it.

    Aside from basically living off those books and requiring green eggs for breakfast for a decade, we covered him in my Philosophy class AND United States history class and it never crossed my mind that somebody may have never have heard of him...

    Not even heard of the hideous Jim Carrey and Mike Meyers films??

    Maybe the name doesnt ring a bell for you but surely the illustrations/font/character does? I'm not english and wasnt taught anything about it at school or anything either but I thought surely it was part of every persons childhood?

    Basically there are two kinds of people:

    1) Have heard of Dr. Seuss
    2) Are illiterate and have been living under a rock for their whole lives.
    There are two kinds of people, but they are:

    (a) those who divide the world into two kinds of people, and
    (b) those who don't.

    I'm not sure how any child of the last two decades could have grown up without encountering one of the ubiquitous doctor's books.

    Have you never heard of the How the Grinch Stole Christmas or The Cat in the Hat?

    By the way:

    You’re wrong as the deuce
    And you shouldn’t rejoice
    If you’re calling him Seuss.
    He pronounces it Soice.

    I've heard of all of the above, but I didn't know Dr Seuss related to them.

    Debate with a friend: he dropped the term 'Dr Seuss' into conversation. I've never heard of it, to which he was surprised. Currently debating whether Dr Seuss is common knowledge.
    You've heard of The Grinch though! (I hope ) Ignore those stuck up people who think it's a crime to have not heard of Dr bloody Seuss.

    I haven't read any. I read loads of books as a child, but I never really fancied reading that Cat in the Hat one. I bet loads haven't, it seems a bit annoying.

    Ha! but I said encountered, not read, and you obviously have encountered them.
