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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
