1111-dr-suess-copyright-infringment-lawsuit-photos-8Dr. Seuss' stories should NOT be rehashed with Vulcans or Klingons in the mix -- at least not without permission ... according to a new lawsuit.

The Doc's camp just filed suit against ComicMix, which thought it'd be neat to make a 'Star Trek' version of "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the Seuss' co. says ComicMix fused elements of the classic book with their own story, and even jacked actual prose from the original ... all without asking.

They say ComicMix knew damn well it was doing the Doc dirty because its Kickstarter page for the project mentioned they might have to go to court to prove their work was parody and not a violation of copyright. They acknowledged, "we may even lose."

Team Seuss is suing for damages. A lawyer for ComicMix tells us they love Dr. Seuss and hope to resolve the suit amicably.
