* More subtly, the Lorax's departure. The Once-ler, never having witnessed the Lorax's arrival, accuses him of being a fraud with no actual magical powers. Then the last Truffula tree is felled, and a magical aura surrounds the Lorax as he levitates into the air wistfully, as though saying, "You want magic powers? Here's that magic power, and it's there to tell you how much you suck!"

* In a Meta Example: Danny de Vito as the Lorax. Which is not that incredible until your realize is not only true in english, but also in italian, spanish, german, and russian.

* The "How Bad Can I Be?" song sequence. For those who condemn this film as a betrayal of the book's theme needs to see this, which is an infectiously tuneful skewering of the modern economy with its corporate excesses and the self-deluded rationalizations of the 1% as the Once-ler completely buries his conscience and wrecks the land with his greed, even co-opting the Lorax for his own ends when he tries to stop the rampage.

It is an excellent villain song. Almost on-par with those made by Disney.

** Adding to that, the guy who starts "Let It Grow' is the main O'Hare employee seen throughout the film (including singing in the first song, perhaps it's a part of his job?) O'Hare specifically orders him to get the people (who are undecided at this point) on his side, or else he will be fired. After looking around nervously, he sighs and instead of following orders, voices (or rather, sings) his simple opinion that he doesn't agree with O'Hare and thinks that they should let the trees come back. This simple action is what finally convinces people to fully give Trees a chance. Give that man an award for risking his job in order to help Ted bring the trees back. Later on in the song, after O'Hare tries to manipulate it back into his favor (and failing miserably), he quite vocally calls O'Hare "you greedy dirtbag!"
