Dr. Seuss on the Loose is an American animated musical television special, first airing on CBS on October 15, 1973. The special is hosted by The Cat in the Hat, who introduces animated adaptations of the Dr. Seuss stories The Sneetches, The Zax, and Green Eggs and Ham.
The Sneetches was intended by Seuss as a satire of discrimination between races and cultures, and was specifically inspired by his opposition to antisemitism.
In 2010 the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers made history, adopting a recommendation to member States on Measures to combat discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons have been for centuries and still are subjected to homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of intolerance and discrimination even within their family. The Council of Europe is committed to promote and ensure respect for the human rights and dignity of every individual and to combat discrimination and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons in Europe.
