It's A Dr. Seuss Characters List!


Can you imagine a world filled with Dr. Seuss Characters? By looking at the list below, I imagine there would be lots of laughter in that world as our tongues tripped over the names of our fellow beings.

The list below is broken up by the Dr. Seuss books they are in. So, find your favorite Dr. Seuss Book and see all the characters listed beneath.

And for those of you diehard Seuss fans, interested in more then just a Dr. Seuss characters list, I recommend getting the “Who’s Who & What’s What in the Books of Dr. Seuss”, a publication created by Dartmouth College that acts like an encyclopedia of the world of Dr. Seuss. You can access the .pdf version here, who's who in Dr. Seuss .
