!!The TV special



* All three scenes of the animals in the TV special in their own right. The Barbeloots song as they leave is creepy and depressing, and the Swomee Swans leaving just
takes this to a whole new level. The fish leaving isn't as sad as the first two, however it still has the impression that they are no longer able to live there.

to:

--> '''Boy''': What's an "unless"?
--> '''Once-ler''': (singing) Just a far away word...just a far away thought...
--> '''Boy''': A thought? About what? About something I ought?
--> '''Once-ler''': Well...(singing) A thought about something that somebody ought...a thought about something that somebody ought.

* From the TV special version, near the end, we hear the song the Once-ler sings to the boy. Also, the scenes where the animals are forced to leave, as dark reprisals of their cue music play.

** But most of all, the Oncelers family leaving. The song they sing is an absolutely heartwrenching reprise of Jolly Good Onceler.

* "That's it. The very last one. That may stop you." While anyone who's read the book knew it was coming, the way the last chop is portrayed is very poignant. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone It's the look... the ''look'' on the Once-ler's face]] when he's knocked out of his comfort zone and shown just ''what'' his "glorious" Thneed company has created.

* The fall of the first tree: Partly the music, and partly the dramatic camera angles, but the scene is reminiscent of the end of a boss from Shadow Of The Colossus. We cannot help but feel that something terrible has happened, and that something beautiful has died, with no way of bringing it back...

* From the film version itself, after the last tree is cut down, [[spoiler:he is not only told by his mom that he was a big disappointment, but all the forest friends he had looked sadly at him (even the little bear himself). Still trying desperately to win them back after all that happens, he even offers the little bear a marshmallow, though the little tyke, with sadness in his eyes, only turns away. And then comes when the Lorax himself lifts himself up to the sky, leaving behind the stone that says "unless".]] Just, the entire scene here.

* The TV special has the Once-ler arguing with himself about destroying the Truffula Trees, and eventually he rationalizes that if he didn't do it someone else would.
