Format: DVD
20the Century Fox has just released a big-screen version of the Dr. Seuss classic Horton Hears a Who, but did you know the story actually made its debut on the small screen nearly 40 years ago? In 1970 the story came to TV in a half-hour animated special produced by legendary Warner Bros. director, Chuck Jones. Responsible for some of the best Bug Bunny cartoons ever produced, Jones was no stranger to the works of Theodor Geisel, AKA Dr. Seuss, having directed another Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas a few years earlier.

I recall watching the special when I was a kid but had nearly forgotten about it until Warner Bros. released the special on a brand new deluxe DVD that also features several other cartoon shorts based on Dr. Seuss' books. Horton is a friendly, imaginative elephant that is the only one who can hear the voices coming from a spec of dust, the tiny world of the Whos. Berated and made fun of by other inhabitants of the jungle, the courageous Horton protects the spec of dust with his own life, proclaiming, "A person is a person, no matter how small." While Horton is a fantastic children's fable it also offers a strong morale message of standing up for what you believe in, no matter what peer pressure you are under. I only hope the message is not lost in the big screen version. If nothing else, the film has made it possible that the original animated tale has been released on DVD, completely remastered and looking better than ever. The colors are bold and bright and it brought back great memories, as it has not been shown on TV in decades.

I mistakenly purchased this DVD instead of the film version; I've seen these stories on televison before. At any rate, the older-style annimation suits the Seuss stories, and the three extra stories ('Maize-daisy','The Butter Battles' and 'Horton Hatches a Who') are well-worth my mistake. This is a fine and classic addition to a DVD library.

Bond with your little ones as you relax with them to view this movie. The child in you will thank you for it. This is not a movie to see without children. Give the DVD as a gift to a little one but let the children enjoy it. Everyone is important, no matter how small is a message that sinks into you as you watch this movie.

Format: DVD
This DVD (Deluxe Edition) contains the old Horton Hears a Who, it is not the newer movie starring Jim Carrey. It's a nice blast from the past, the Horton I remember. In spite of the calls to "boil that dust speck, beezlenut boil", and threats of "he's going to be roped, he's going to be caged", Horton stands true to his convictions and doesn't budge. The citizens of Whoville discover just in time that Dr. Who-Vee was absolutely right that a world existed beyond the limits of their town. What a novel thought. The Butter Battle Book is another good story for illustrating how silly and hostile people can be toward others who don't conform to their norms. Many of Seuss's books, some made into videos, draw attention to cultures of conformity. The DVD also has Daisy-Head Mayzie. In this story, young Mayzie has a daisy growing on top of her head. No one quite knows what to do about it until an agent comes along and makes her famous. The moral to the story is that love is more important than fame and fortune. Horton Hatches the Egg is also on this DVD. Horton takes care of a bird egg until it hatches, yes, an elephant sitting on an egg. It is done as a Warner Brothers cartoon which is different from the other three episodes.

Very funny movie, I prefer this older 1970's version of "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who" because of Hans Conrad's character voice talent. The extras of Dr Seuss' short films never get outdated. The Warner Bros. cartoon about Horton hatching an egg was the funniest and is worth checking out.

I remember this from when I was a child, and wanted to see the original again before the new animation comes out. It was the same animation I recall (the Deluxe DVD Edition). I had forgotten the details of the story - I remember "we're here, we're here, we're here!!". And then I was fascinated that one reviewer thought this was an anti-abortion message.... So, with that review in mind, I watched, and I can see WHY someone might interpret it that way, but certainly not a child who knows nothing about such things. From a child's perspective (and my memory as the youngest in the family) it's more a message of "hey don't forget about me", and the kind people like Horton who stick up for the little guy against overwhelming odds. (I just read What Is the What (Vintage) - and trust me, there are whole generations all over the world being slaughtered while the rest of the planet just shrugs.) So, anti-abortion? There are so many other interpretations.

Meanwhile, another reviewer was shocked at the fish in another of the cartoons on the DVD taking out a revolver and shooting himself in the head... Ever seen Roadrunner / Coyote cartoons where they constantly blow each other up? If you really consider what they're doing, it's really quite violent. Remember the rhyme "..I don't know why she swallowed the fly.. perhaps she'll die..."? I overheard a mother reading a sample of that to her daughter in a bookstore, and put it aside saying it was "sick". Read any Brothers Grimm? Hopefully children will not take these things literally because they don't have the context of an adult... hopefully.

This is a classic Seuss story with his usual moral message.
