Horton Hears a Who

9 months, 4 weeks ago at Aug 27 22:55
Whereas 1966’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a model of pacing and narrative economy in adapting a piece of children’s literature, Horton Hears a Who is a slightly bloated affair. Too many songs slow things down, and perhaps there just wasn’t enough story here to justify a full twenty-five minute special.

"DIR: Chuck Jones SUMMARY: Horton the elephant hears a small voice calling for help from a floating dust speck. Deciding to help the voice, because 'a person's a person, no matter how small', Horton rescues it from drifting over a waterfall. But his continued dialogue with the dust speck drives the other animals to take action against what they deem to be a crazy elephant. WHY IT'S HERE: Chuck Jones's 'Horton Hears a Who!' was another great adaptation of a Dr. Seuss story, following on from J"
