Green Eggs and Ham is the second Dr. Seuss interactive Living Books video game released on July 15, 1996. It is based on the 1960 book of the same name.

Plot[]

Sam I Am tries to pester The Grouchy Guy by saying "I am Sam!" and "Sam I am!" (with his signs), in which the Grouchy Guy (Sam's Friend) develops a dislike for Sam.

One morning, Sam-I-Am tries to offer the Grouchy Guy a breakfast food called "green eggs and ham". But the Grouchy Guy refuses by saying, "I do not like them Sam-I-Am. I do not like green eggs and ham".

Incredulous, Sam begins following the Grouchy Guy and asking him to eat that food in several locations and with different animals, including in a house with a mouse and in a box with a fox, but is still rebuffed. Eventually, Sam, the mouse, and the fox give chase to the Grouchy Guy in a car, knocking him onto the car's hood and driving the car up to the top of a tree. As the Grouchy Guy continues to reject Sam’s offer, the car falls onto a passing passenger train with everyone in tow. Now stuck on top of one of the train's cars, Sam continues to ask the Grouchy Guy if he would eat them in a dark tunnel or in the rain. Later, Sam presents him with a goat hiding in the hood, when the train suddenly goes off the rails and begins to plummet into the sea below. As the Grouchy Guy yells "I do not like them here (this place) or there (the other place). I do not like them ANYWHERE!" at Sam one final time, the train crashes into a boat, destroying and sinking it.

Finally that afternoon, after everyone has fallen into the sea and emerged out, the Grouchy Guy vainly accepts Sam’s offer and tries the green eggs and ham. When he tries it, he is so surprised to find that he does like them after all. As he eats the dish (offscreen) he happily announces that he will eat them anywhere and with anyone Sam just asked about. The story ends with the Grouchy Guy (who has eaten the entire dish) becoming friends with Sam-I-am. All of the characters return to shore, as the Grouchy Guy happily says, "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am!". Finally, the Grouchy Guy thanks Sam I Am for letting him try something new, and makes blue roasted turkey for Sam-I-Am to try. He gives Sam I Am a taste of the blue turkey, saying, "Try it. You like it. I made it for you!", presuming that Sam-I-Am (after he chews and swallows) really likes it.

In the "The End" screen, Sam and The Grouchy Guy (now becoming friends) both say goodbye to the reader. Then, the Grouchy Guy asks, "Say, why don't we get something to eat?", and Sam replies, "I know just the place". As they both walk home to the setting sun, The Grouchy Guy (as he holds Sam's hand) tells Sam that "this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship". Then the words "The End" in a yellow serif text appears on the sunset.

Trivia[]

  • This video oddly uses the original Living Books logo from Dr. Seuss' ABC. In this logo, the book doesn't look down when the "A Random House/Broderbund Company" tagline appears– instead, the book looks upward with a shocked face and gets hit and crushed by a plate.
    • The music for the Living Books theme is also recomposed in this version like Dr. Seuss's ABC and The Cat in the Hat.
    • Also, the background is red, unlike Dr. Seuss's ABC, it was blue, also unlike The Cat in the Hat, it is purple but with the "Broderbund Software Inc." tagline,
  • This marks the second time The Cat in the Hat makes a cameo in a Living Books CD-ROM (The first time being Dr. Seuss' ABC during the letter "C" on page 3). (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.) He later becomes a major character in the third Dr. Seuss Living Book.
  • This is the second Living Books video game to have a character say something other than "Welcome to Living Books!". In this video game, Sam-I-Am says "Welcome to Green Eggs and Ham!" .
  • Like Ruff's Bone, Arthur's Computer Adventure, and D.W. the Picky Eater, this game uses a different credit sequence: It displays the game's animatic instead of the usual jazz animations, while using music from the Wizard, Painting, and Music credits animations that appeared in the previous two games.
    • This is also the only unique credit sequence that has Joey Edelman's jazz score used for the background music.
  • 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 demo version can be featured in The Berenstain Bears in the Dark, Stellaluna, and Arthur's Reading Race.
  • 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.
  • The Living Books Sampler demo for this game uses a still version of the title card, with the music cut down.
  • This is the first time to allow interaction with something besides the arrow to move on to the next page, but for only one page.
  • 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".
  • Like the other Dr. Seuss Living Books, this game was not planned to be re-released by Wanderful, as Oceanhouse Media already made their own version of the book– which doesn't use the Living Books version. Copies of the CD-Rom for the Living Books version can still be found on some auction sites including eBay.
    • Software MacKiev once re-released the Living Books version of this game as an app (with different graphics and/or buttons), but it has since been removed from the App Store.
  • The Grouchy Guy's official name is "Guy-Am-I" in the Netflix series. Most other sources give his name as "Joey".

Quotes[]


Page 2 (Animation)[]

The Grouchy Guy: That Sam-I-Am! That Sam-I-Am! I do not like that Sam-I-Am!
(When he says, "I do not like that Sam-I-Am!", he stretches out and puts his annoyed face in front of the screen. It is completed with a close-up of his annoyed face into the screen.)

Page 2[]

(The Grouchy Guy says the same repeated line on page 2 -- "I do not like green eggs and ham!"-- tilting his head back, pinching up his nose, and waving his hand at the dish trying to push it away.)
The Grouchy Guy: I do not like green eggs and ham!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

(when the user clicks on the food) (One egg as a cowboy) Yee-haw! (One egg as a horse) (ham as a cow runs away until it gets lassoed)

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Sam-I-am: (when the user clicks on Sam) Would you eat them baked or roasted? Over-easy? Poached? (the toaster appears and the ham pops out.) Or toasted?
The Grouchy Guy: (objecting) Ew!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

(When the user clicks on the food) (First egg playing a guitar) (Second egg playing a drum) (Green Ham as a Brazilian Portuguese dancer and sings and vocalizes)

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Sam-I-am: Would you eat them creamed or scrambled? (Eggs and ham crushed into green scrambled eggs) Shurbed or deviled? Whipped or frambled? (Green scrambled eggs jumps into The Grouchy Guy's nose)

________________________________________________________________________________________

(when the user clicks on the food) (First Egg Reading His Newspaper as a Father egg) (Second Egg Sewing up her Clothes as a mother egg) (pacifier off Sam's ham) (ham cries)

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Sam-I-am: Would you like them sweet or salted? (shows how beautiful eggs and ham looks as he disagrees; the scene is revealed to the eggs and ham being disguised as a sundae with real sundae toppings) With some milk or with a malted?

Page 3[]

The Grouchy Guy: (to Sam) I do not like your food today!

(The Grouchy Guy --because he does not like Sam's food-- forces Sam to wrap up his green eggs and ham in a red bag. He packs it up, puts it on a stick, and makes Sam go away.)

The Grouchy Guy: SO TAKE YOUR EGGS AND GO AWAY!
(Sam leaves in frustration and disappointment.)

__________________________________________________________________________________

(Two giraffe/dragon hybrid animals come out of the bushes when the user clicks on the bushes. Their names are Would Not Giraffe and Would Too Giraffe. Would Not Giraffe turns to Sam and Grouchy Guy and responds to them that he likes green eggs and ham even though Grouchy Guy does not like it.)
Would Not Giraffe: (to Sam and Grouchy Guy) Well, but I eat green eggs and ham.
(The other giraffe/dragon hybrid creature "Would Too Giraffe" disagrees with "Would Not" because "Would Not" always eats anything)
Would Too Giraffe: Nah! You eat anything!
(The giraffe/dragon creatures start to argue. Even though Would Not does eat green eggs and ham, Would Too thinks that it is annoying because his brother Would Not eats anything.)
Would Not Giraffe: Would not.
Would Too Giraffe: Would too.
Would Not Giraffe: Would not.
Would Too Giraffe: WOULD TOO!
Would Not Giraffe: WOULD NOT!
(Both get down into the bushes)
Would Too Giraffe: Would too.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

(Sam gives The Grouchy Guy the option to eat the green eggs and ham either now or later if The Grouchy Guy is not going to eat them. The Grouchy Guy turns to Sam who is trying to get him to try the dish --though another option which is "now or later"-- and glares at it. His "look" is hardly a look due to his annoyance and pretending that he does not see nor hear Sam.)
Sam I Am: Would you like them them now...? (Takes out pocket watch) ...Or later?
(The Grouchy Guy refuses both options. He does look at Sam and becomes more mad and annoyed. Then he tells Sam what he really is because he does not like green eggs and ham.)
The Grouchy Guy: (still not liking Sam's food) Sam, I am a Green Eggs hater!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Sam I Am: (going over to him) Would you eat them on my hat?
The Grouchy Guy: I would not, could not, that is that. (He pushes Sam away)

______________________________________________________________________________________________

(The Grouchy Guy "looks" at Sam's offer and glares at it, though it is hardly a look due to his annoyance.)
Sam-I-Am: You should try them.
(Sam takes a piece of ham from the "green eggs and ham" dish trying to give The Grouchy Guy a taste and tells him to take a taste)
Sam-I-Am: Take a taste!
(Sam throws the ham from the dish into the trash can.)
Sam-I-Am: Or else these eggs will go to waste!
(He dumps it in the trash --after telling the Grouchy Guy that if he does not try them the eggs and ham are going to waste. Then the trash can eats the ham. Finding it delicious, the trash can licks his lips. The Grouchy Guy is still disgusted and turns his disgusted expression at Sam and turns back.
________________________________________________________________________
(The Grouchy Guy's legs fall off him and makes Him Shocked)
The Grouchy Guy: GAH!
(as he says that, he pulls his legs back right up)

Smoke Stack: (Leans over) I like my ham--- (coughs) ---Smoked.

Food Coloring Matching Game[]

(From the start of the minigame.)
Sam I Am: (to The Grouchy Guy) If ham and eggs are not for you, I'll try to give you something new.
(By that, what Sam-I-Am means to the Grouchy Guy is that since he does not like green eggs and ham, he should have something new if it's not for him. However, the Grouchy Guy doubts it.)
Mouse: Just find two things that are the same, and Sam I Am will say the name.

The Grouchy Guy: I would not eat them in the sky. Not even if green eggs could fly!
The Grouchy Guy: I would not eat them with a goat. Not if it wore a rubber float!/Not even if it wore a coat!/Not even if it rowed a boat!
The Grouchy Guy: I would not, could not, on a train. I would not eat them in the rain!/Not if you tied it with a chain!/WHY CAN'T YOU GET THAT THROUGH YOUR BRAIN?!
The Grouchy Guy: I would not eat them in a tree. I will not eat them with a bee!/Not if you begged on bended knee!/SO GO BEFORE I COUNT TO THREE!
The Grouchy Guy: I would not eat them in a car. Not if you put them in a jar!/Not if you wish upon a star!/Not if the car were stuck in tar!
The Grouchy Guy: I will not eat them with a fox. Not if you put them in a box!/I would not eat them with an ox!
The Grouchy Guy: I will not eat them with a mouse. I will not eat them in a house!/Not even if it wore a blouse!
The Grouchy Guy: I do not like green eggs and ham! Not smothered with raspberry jam!/Not even with a candied yam!/I do not like that Sam-I-Am!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Sam-I-Am: Try them! (moves in closer to The Grouchy Guy's face and The Grouchy Guy tries to duck from Sam) They are so delicious. (from underwater and in The Grouchy Guy's face) Eggs and ham are quite nutritious.
(As The Grouchy Guy tries to duck, Sam moves on even closer to his face, even in underwater. The Grouchy Guy angrily responds in annoyance.)
The Grouchy Guy: (from underwater) Sam...?! Will you please...?! (takes Sam's face out of his face, pushes him away fast, and then emerges out of the water with two fish on him) ...GO AWAY?! (then to Sam about asking him to try the dish 20 times) YOU'VE ASKED ME 20 TIMES TODAY!
(At that, The Grouchy Guy does this a trick to get Sam to step up his game.)

Sam-I-Am: (about The Grouchy Guy trying the dish) Do you think he'll take a bite? Will we have to wait all night?

The Grouchy Guy: It's good to try out something new. And Sam, I learned that all from you!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Sam-I-Am: I'm glad you liked my eggs and ham.
The Grouchy Guy: Thank you. Thank you, Sam-I-Am!

The Grouchy Guy: Thank you for letting me try something new. And now in return, here's something for you.
(It becomes a blue turkey.)
Sam-I-Am: (as he sees the turkey on the plate.) Something blue? Something blue! That is something new!
The Grouchy Guy: (gives Sam a taste of the blue turkey) Try it. You'll like it. I made it for you.
(After Sam chews and swallows, it is revealed that he does like it when The Grouchy Guy gives Sam a taste of it.)

The End[]

The Grouchy Guy: Well, that's the end of our story. Say goodbye, Sam.
Sam I Am: (Waving to the camera) Bye-bye.
The Grouchy Guy: Goodbye. (to Sam) Say, why don't we go get something to eat?
Sam I Am: I know just the place.
The Grouchy Guy: (walks along with Sam) You know, Sam? This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
(then, the words "The End" appear on the sunset)

Quit[]

Sam I Am: Are you sure you want to quit?
(when the user clicks "No", which the "No" character is the mouse.)
Sam I Am: Okay.
(when the user clicks "Yes", which the "Yes" character is the fox.)
Sam I Am: Okay, bye! See ya!
