Playhouse Video, a division of CBS/FOX Video, was the main distributor for The Hoober-Bloob Highway and all other Dr. Seuss specials on VHS. When originally released in 1985 on VHS, The Hoober-Bloob Highway also included The Lorax. It was later re-printed alone in 1989.
After Playhouse Video became defunct, distribution rights for The Hoober-Bloob Highway and three other Dr. Seuss videos were sold to Fox Video, which was established in 1991. Later in 1994, a "sing-along" version was released, followed by a re-print in 1997 with previews of other Fox Kids Video titles.
Finally, late in 1998, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment's last re-release of The Hoober-Bloob Highway on VHS (without the sing-along lyrics) also included The Cat in the Hat.
