* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: There is a theme of forcing someone to do things, i.e. "You should try to stop people making their own decisions, because they might not even be right about what they'll like."

* BrokenAesop:
** Sam-I-Am is basically harassing the grumpy character, refusing to take a clear "no" for an answer. Regardless of his (presumably) good intentions that is really not behavior that should be demonstrated to children.
** And really, is it unfair of the guy to be wary of ''green'' eggs and ham?
*** Then again, it's only a food and it might be normal in ''this'' world.

Creator/DrSeuss does it again, putting a tiny collection of words to excellent - if not annoying - use (especially if you have to read the same book to your kid eighty times in a row... or [[EarWorm just enough to get it stuck in your head]]). He manages this with a text composed primarily of repetitions of the same few lines, with a few minor changes, building up to a climactic ending. His whimsical pictures showcase the crazy world in which this storyline is possible.

An AnimatedAdaptation was featured as part of the TV special ''Dr. Seuss on the Loose''. The Canadian band Music/MoxyFruvous also sang a funky rap song using an adaptation of the book. Music/WeirdAlYankovic sometimes recites the book on stage to the tune of {{U2}}'s "Numb". It also got an adaptation as a LivingBooks title. Inspired the title of the beginner snare drum solo, ''[[PunnyName Green Eggs and Flam]]''.
