The Tree Tender
About this creation


Team: 5 Monkeys
Category: #3 'Dr. Seuss'
An official MOCAthalon Creation


Gourd trees are amazing it would happen to be,
their seeds could be used for all sorts of things!

They tasted quite sweet and were a wonderful treat,
and the skin could be used to cover your feet!

The Gorbels used the seeds to make all their tools,
and discovered a way to use them for fuel!

But they took and they took 'till they were really quite rare,
but they didn't notice and did not seem to care.

But one Gorbel noticed and became very upset,
he found only three gourd trees and began to fret,

He constructed a towering Tengorashelop,
it was an awesome device with no studs on top!

He tended the tree's with big robot hands,
and even built himself a big watering can!

Then one day a tree started to seed,
The Tree Tender had insured the future indeed!

Fourth Wall: For those not familiar with the good Doctor, he was a a pretty big environmentalist. So I decided to do an MOC that focused on that aspect. Plus I could never resist the challenge to build a Dr. Seuss inspired Mech! Again, sorry for the 'sheety' background. Go Monkeys!

I see most Gorbels have ecstatic hair! There greed has been thwarted, so none will despair. This creation is a treat, to all but the air. I promise you, promise you, you'll be as brilliant as a mayor!

I won't bother with the story since I am not familiar with it but the creation is awesome! The clarity, the colors and the imagination used to build this amazes me. Keep it up!

When I saw in this category you built a mech, the first thing I said to myself "what the heck?" You pulled this off nicely we all can agree, your score will be much higher than three. You pulled at the heartstrings and made us all think. Then you gave him a watercan so the plants could drink. Build by itself was a four no surprise, but adding a great story brought it up to a 5! ~ Chris.

A mech in a Dr. Seuss category!? Hey! Why not, especially since it's a fantastically built mech! Great scenery too; I'm digging those quirky trees!
