Doctor Who Episode Idea - Eleven meets Theodor Seuss Geisel (AKA Dr. Seuss)

In this Christmas Special, The Doctor scoops up a young Theodor and takes him to the year 3808 on the planet Mulberry. The two battle against the evil Grinch (a relative species of the Doctor’s ‘ol enemy, the Devil) and his sidekicks, the Lorax and the Sneetches. Our two heroes team up with a planet celebrity, a friendly talking turtle named Yertle, and manage to save the day, restoring Christmas to all! And to celebrate their victory, the Doctor takes Theodor to Barcelona (the planet, not the city), where they meet dogs with no noses, and later to the planet Horton, where they encounter foxes in socks. 
Young Theodor’s already active imagination is quite heightened by these exciting adventures. And besides the many names dropped in the episode summary, many other aspects also later leak through to his work, including:
The Cat in the Hat - The Doctor told him about his New Earth encounters with talking cats,  plus Theodor quite liked the quirky red and white hat that the Doctor picked up at a little shop, and kept insisting was cool. Ditto the red bow tie.
Green Eggs and Ham - Not quite as revolting as that fish finger/custard combo the Doctor cooked up as a celebratory meal
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - The alien bloke sure did mention fish a lot!
Horton Hears a Who!, the Whos in the town of Whoville - Welllll, who the heck was the Doctor really? Theodor kept asking.
I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stories - The Doctor may have denied it, but at one point, Theodor definitely saw him lick several tails of Barcelona dogs.
Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? - While on the planet Horton, the Doctor insisted that they run in the opposite direction upon spotting a wild-haired skinny bloke, who was moo-ing at a confused ginger lady. He wore a brown pinstripe suit. 
And perhaps most notably, the mere word ‘Doctor’ soon came to be an inspiration for Theodor to seek out the world’s most whimsical and quirky amusements. So, he decided to give himself the title, paired with his real middle name.

    I have to admit, whenever some refers to themselves as a Whovian, even after getting into Dr. Who, my first thought goes...
