Yes, I just watched, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (the Chuck Jones cartoon, not the Jim Carrey movie). And yes, I do think about these things. Some of the things Dr. Seuss came up with in his books look incredibly impractical. However, I think some of the instruments portrayed in the Chuck Jones cartoon version look like a lot of fun.

COMMENTERS: Do you know of any other fictional instruments that would be interesting to see in real life?
