** 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.

** There's a tricycle in ''How The Grinch Stole Christmas'' labelled "For Jo-Jo." If thaat is the same Jo-Jo from ''Horton Hears A Who'', then yes.

** 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.

*** I know, but the entire point of the story is that the Whos are enjoying Christmas even without their stuff. (Including what they need to stay alive.)

** Plus, after his HeelFaceTurn, it's implied he gave the food back along with the Christmas present. I mean, it would kinda ruin the meaning of the end if he brought back everything except the things the Whos needed to stay alive in the first place. In the animated version at least, he's seen at the end cutting up the beef and delivering it to everyone else at the table.
