Seuss-yodaEver wonder what Yoda might look like if taken out of the hands of George Lucas and given to Dr. Seuss to mold? Well, Seattle-based cartoonist Adam Watson did just that and produced a series of illustrations combining the two, often strange worlds. Some of the cartoons even have Star Wars scenes retold in a Seussian voice, like this nugget of wisdom from Yoda in Seuss-land:

“This body is old,
but it’s all that I’ve got.

When 900 you reach,
look so good you will not!”

Once you see it, it’s pretty clear that Yoda and Dr. Seuss are tuned to the same frequency. Right?
