Horton Who, you say? He has been loved by generations of kids since Dr. Seuss immortalized him in the 1954 classic Horton Hears A Who. He is everyone’s favourite elephant (and the most loyal a friend anyone could have) who, ‘on the fifteenth of May, in the jungle of Nool, in the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool…’ heard the tiniest squeak coming from a tiny speck floating through the air.
Whether you remember him or not, it’s time to get reacquainted and introduce him to your kids at the same time this holiday season with the release of the movie to DVD on December 9.
Back to the DVD…it turns out that the tiny speck is an entire universe of people from Who-ville—whose very existence is being threatened by the animals in the jungle of Nool (who believe Horton is clearly off his rocker since they can’t hear or see the Who-villes). While Horton becomes the loyal protector of Who-ville, the animals work tirelessly to destroy the speck and put an end to Horton’s ‘bellowing bungle!’
