Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleofAdaptationModification: Type 4. The only real difference from the book is that the mayor is downgraded to a science professor named Dr. Hoovey. and a subplot is added involving the townspeople ridiculing his claims about there being life beyond Whoville and being an outcast as a result.

Added DiffLines:

* LostInImitation: The films borrows some concepts from previous adaptations of the story:
** The mayor (or Dr. Hoovey in the 1970 special) trying to prove to the people of Whoville that life beyond their world exists, but is not believed and ridiculed by the citizens, which comes back to bite them later.
** The concept of Jojo being an AscendedExtra as the mayor's misunderstood son and the fact that Whoville [[spoiler: is somehow not damaged in the slightest from the the fall into the cloverpatch]] both come Theatre/Seussical, which uses this story as one of the main plots.

Added DiffLines:

* IWarnedYou: Inverted. The ''whos'' acknowledge themselves the massive destruction Whoville receives from being dropped from the sky by Vlad, that Dr. Hoovey had warned them that there was life beyond Whoville that could put their whole world at risk and they had not given his claims a speck (pun intended) of regard.

* BigGood: Horton, simply because the city of Whooville resides on a speck, in the Jungle of Nool. Resident empathetic elephant is thus enormous compared to them, unfortunately, so is local [[BigBad control-freak Sour Kangaroo]].

* UnlikelyHero: Although you can see it coming a mile away, the mopey, silent Jojo is, of course, the one who [[spoiler: comes through in the end]].

* AskAStupidQuestion: When Morton warns Horton that Kangaroo has sent Vlad to destroy the clover.
--> '''Horton''': Is it the Bad Vlad or the Bunny Vlad that makes the cookies?\\
'''Morton''': [[SarcasmMode Yeah Horton. She's sending you a bunny with cookies]]. I think we can assume it's the Bad Vlad!

[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused]] with "Horton Hears The Who", which is a) a TheWho bootleg and b) an IncrediblyLamePun so obvious it has been made several times independently.
