Green Eggs and Ham is the thirteenth Living Books PC CD-Rom Game 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, which was aired on CBS, and released on July 15, 1996. The male narrator is an anthropomorphic dog-like creature named Guy Am I. The other narrator is "Sam" (an anthropomorphic cat-like creature without ears nor tail).

PlotEdit

Living Books - Titles-Dr seuss green eggs and ham.

One sunny morning, it starts off with Joey who is reading the morning newspaper in an armchair. After Sam I Am says, "I am Sam!" and "Sam I am!" (with his signs), Guy Am I gets annoyed of Sam's scheming. Guy Am I throws down his newspaper and says, "That Sam-I-Am! That Sam-I-Am! I do NOT like that Sam-I-Am!", with his annoyed face stretched into the camera). Then, Sam-I-Am asks Guy Am I to eat a breakfast food called "green eggs and ham". Guy Am I tells him that he doesn't like that food at all by saying, "I do not like them Sam I Am. I do not like green eggs and ham". Guy Am I continues to repeat this as Sam-I-am persistently follows him.

While Guy Am I is followed by Sam-I-am, Sam continues to ask Guy Am I 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 Guy Am I 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, Guy Am I finally chooses to give them a try. He says that if Sam-I-Am will "let him be", he will try them. And that afternoon, when Guy Am I gives in with Sam's pestering, he does give in and tries the green eggs and ham. When he tries it, he is so surprised to find that he does like them after all. And then, he says he is going to eat them in all of the places and with all of the animals Sam-I-Am just asked about. The story ends with Guy Am I (who has eaten the entire dish) becoming best friends with Sam-I-am by saying, "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am!". Finally, in the end, Guy Am I thanks Sam I Am for letting him try something new, and makes blue roasted turkey for Sam-I-Am to try.

Trivia Edit

  • 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 Living Book doesn't feature any mini-games directly accessible from the menu, instead integrates small mini-games within the story, like The Cat in the Hat.
  • This is the first Living Book to use a new cover design.
  • This is the first Living Book 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, the book gets hit by a plate.
  • On the "Quit" screen, if you click on "Yes" (after being given a "No" or "Yes" answer to the question said by Sam; "Are you sure you want to quit?"), you leave the book when Sam-I-Am says, "Okay. Bye. See ya!". However when you click on "No", you might want to keep playing when Sam-I-Am says "Okay". The mouse is the "No", while the fox is the "Yes".
  • When Sam grabs Joey's ear, Guy Am I gets irritated at Sam's annoyance that he shouts at him to go away and leave him alone as a favor to him (saying, "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.)
