That same year, Jim Henson Pictures optioned the rights to a live-action version of the Seuss book Oh, the Places You'll Go!. The film was never produced. Muppet set designer William Beeton cited Geisel, along with Henry Moore, as part of the inspiration for the soft curves and arches in the caves of Fraggle Rock. Geisel's other work included countless political cartoons and scripts for WWII propaganda films, the occasional adult book such as The Seven Lady Godivas (1939), and the screenplay for the movie The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T, which featured Seussian architecture and costume elements.
