Synopises

While a cute little Lorax speaks for the trees, a Once-ler is chopping down the forest to make highly-profitable Thneeds. The Greedy Once-ler won't listen to the Lorax. And so, the whole Once-ler family is working in the big Once-ler factory, traveling on the four-lane Once-ler highway, and driving out all of the forest creatures... except for the brave Lorax. He continues to speak for the trees... and in the end, with all the trees gone, even the Once-ler gets the message!
