Forbes: Schulz, Seuss are top 10 earning dead celebrities

Forbes’s annual top-earning dead celebrities has been released. Peanuts creator Charles Schulz is still in the top five. This year is his second year at number three with $37 million in earnings. One celebrity I didn’t realize was in the top ten is Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel). His books have always been beloved and mass printed, but a number of his books have been made into feature films – the latest being The Lorax.

At the head of the list (above Sparky) are musicians Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley.
