Living Books - Titles-Dr seuss green eggs and ham.
Green Eggs & Ham is the thirteenth Living Books PC CD-Rom Game from 1996 based on the famous popular 1960 children's story of the same name as written by Dr. Seuss and also based off the segment of the 1973 classic cartoon television special Dr. Seuss on the Loose was aired on CBS. And this CD-Rom was released in July 15, 1996. The narrator is named "Mr. Box Joey, Grouchy Guy or Knox in Box" in this version.

PlotEdit

One sunny morning, Mr. "Sam" Sam-I-Am asks Joey to eat a breakfast food called "green eggs and ham". Joey tells him that he doesn't like that food at all by saying, "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am." Joey continues to repeat this as Sam-I-am persistently follows him. While Joey is followed by Sam-I-am, Sam continues to ask Joey if he would eat that food in and on eight different locations (house, box, car, tree, train, dark, rain, and boat) and with Sam's three different animals (mouse, fox and goat), but Joey still refuses by saying, "I do not like them here (this place) or there (the other place). I do not like them anywhere". After getting put over the edge about it, Joey finally chooses to give them a try in pleading that if Sam-I-Am will "let him be"; he will try them. And that afternoon, when Joey gives into Sam's pestering and tries the green eggs and ham, he is surprised to find that he does like them after all, and he says he is going to eat them everywhere which Sam-I-Am just asked about. The story ends with Joey becoming best friends with Sam by saying, "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-Am!".

TriviaEdit

  • Like Ruff's Bone and Arthur's Computer Adventure, this game's credit sequence features concept art instead of the usual kind, with the audio music for the wizard, the artists, and the music playing over it. If this game's credits did have these credits characters on-screen, this game would have used the same kind of credits animations from "Sheila Rae, the Brave" and "The Berenstain Bears in the Dark". This is the only unique credit sequence that has the Joey Edelman's jazz score played over the credits.
  • This is the first Living Books in which the second page is used in the Living Books Samplers instead of the first page, as the first page has no text on it at all.
  • This Second Version doesn't have always the Demo from "Dr. Seuss's Preschool" and "Kindergarten Reading Disc II".
  • On the Living Books logo variant: the book gets hit by a plate.
  • You leave the book when Sam-I-Am says, "OK, bye! See ya!".
  • When Sam grabs Joey's ear, Joey gets irritated at Sam's annoyance that he shouts at him to go away and leave him alone as a favor to him ("Sam I Am, as a favor to me...! GO AWAY AND LET ME BE!").
  • This marks the 2nd time The Cat in the Hat makes a cameo in a Living Books CD-ROM (The first time being Dr. Seuss' ABC). (If you click on the box on page 17, he'll jump out of the box, take a bow, tip his hat, and walks off the screen. He then comes back, does a pose, then walks back off.)
