'Dr. Seuss's The Lorax': Danny DeVito Speaks For the Trees (VIDEO)

This special behind-the-scenes look at "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" proves that Danny DeVito can do no wrong.

Universal Studios' upcoming animated adaptation of the beloved environmental fable features Mr. Rhea Perlman as the voice of the orange-furred Lorax. In this clip, DeVito takes us into the recording studio to show how he'll bring the beloved character to life on the big-screen. Then it gets even better, when he partakes in an adorable lesson about protecting our trees with a group of eager kids. Try as they might to be professional, the kids just can't hide their giddiness at being in the same room with the voice of the Lorax. (Or perhaps they are big admirers of "The War of the Roses.")

Our only complaint is that this video is a mere three minutes long; we would happily watch DeVito as host of a weekly educational program.

"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" arrives in theaters on Friday, March 2.
