** It may be because the Plain-Bellied wanted to fit in with the rest of the crowd, rather than stooping to the Star-Bellies' level of acting superior. Take for instance when the Plain-Bellies earn their stars from [=McBean=]; rather than accepting themselves after the Star-Bellies lost their stars, they instead chose to remove/gain their stars in order to match that of the other Sneetches. Thus, they may have felt that acting just as high and mighty as the other Sneetches were was beneath them.

* In "The Sneetches", why didn't the Plain-Bellied Sneetches make their own frankfurter roasts, picnics, parties, and marshmallow toasts since the Star-Bellies wouldn't invite them to theirs?

** Both and neither, that's kind of the point. The two sides' only noticable difference is how they eat their bread (an ideaology), just like in real life. And if we don't already have an opinion on one of the ideologies (which making one side directly represent communism and one capitalism would give us), the conflict seems pointless and stupid, just like the Cold War looks to many now.

** It's not ''made'' out of anything. It's ''grown.'' [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Where do you think they got the idea]] for all those bizarre decorations and musical instruments and party games?

** The live action remake attempts to fill in some of these plot holes. Originally, he grew up with the Whos but was treated horribly and made a laughingstock when he tried to impress Martha May Who while trying to hide a shaving accident. This made him leave Whoville and retreat to Mt. Crumpit.
