One day, Horton the elephant hears a cry for help coming from a speck of dust. Even though he can't see anyone on the speck, he decides to help it. Good thing since as it turns out, the speck of dust is home to the Whos, who live in their city of Whoville. Horton agrees to help protect the Whos and their home. Unfortunately for Horton, this gives him nothing but torment from his neighbors. They refuse to believe that anything could survive on the speck. Still, Horton stands by the motto that, "After all, a person is a person, no matter how small."

I like all the Dr. Seuss DVD's. I recommend this for all ages. It is not too violent or sexual for kids. It has moral lessons for children.

Horton Hears A Who, but no one else does! He is an elephant after all and has giant ears, but no one believes him. He is friends with the neighborhood children and tells them about the existence of the Who's. But Ms Kangaroo isn't having it, and doesn like Horton teaching children crazy thoughts so she sets the neighborhood on a witch hunt against Horton, who now has to protect the Who's and find them a new place to live. The movie is true to the classic story and has good voice acting by none other than Jim Carrey.

Good - Horton Hears a Who! (2008) *** 86 min. with the voices of Jim Carrey as Horton, Steve Cavell as the Mayor, Caroll Burnett as Kangaroo. The CGI animation is top notch in this adaptation of Dr. Seuss' story. The film follows closely and expands on the television adaptation first released in 1970 but without the songs (which is a good thing). The only disappointment in this picture was the ending - without spoiling the ending for those that have never seen or read Horton Hears a Who!, it missed the O. Henry/Twilight Zone-ish ending. Oh well. The kids will love it and the adults will too. By the way, does anyone know if this event took place before or after "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas", which also takes place in Whoville! To think that the Grinch lives on a speck of dust; now isn't that cool?
