Dr. Seuss’s mischievously signed Green Cat with Lights “Stroogo Von M.” But why? Audrey Geisel had the answer: “Oh, Ted liked to hang that artwork in the entryway of Seuss House. When people would come in, they would invariably ask about the painting. Ted would answer, ‘That’s my Stroogo Von M. How do you like it?’ In return, what he would get from friends was an honest opinion without them knowing it was his painting.” On at least one occasion, a guest replied, “Oh yes, I’ve heard of Stroogo Von M.”
