Dr. Seuss on the Loose (titled Green Eggs and Ham and Other Stories for the sing-a-long videocasette release and the Deluxe edition releases) is an animated musical television special, first airing on CBS on October 15, 1973, and hosted by The Cat in the Hat who appears in bridging sequences where he introduced animated adaptations of Dr. Seuss children's stories The Sneetches, The Zax and Green Eggs and Ham. Allan Sherman reprised his role as the voice of The Cat in the Hat from the 1971 television special. This was the final project Sherman worked on before his death.

In 1989, the special was originally released as a VHS videocassette on the CBS/Fox Video label's Playhouse Video imprint. In the mid 1990s, it was later released as part of the Dr. Seuss Sing-Along Classics release from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with CBS Video and Fox Kids Video. On October 7, 2003, it was later released on DVD by Universal Studios Home Entertainment. On June 26, 2012, Warner Home Video released the special on a special edition Blu-ray and DVD.[1]
