* StrawmanHasAPoint: The Once-ler does make a valid point when he says that closing his factory will mean laying off 100,000 workers and be detrimental to the economy. Even the Lorax concedes that this would be an extreme solution.

** The Once-Ler himself counts. His role as antagonist is a lot more ambiguous when compared to his abusive family and O'Hare, both of whom come off as a DesignatedVillain. The movie could have easily done away with him without losing any conflict.

*** At the start of the song, it's phrased like a legitimate question, but by the end, it almost seems like a ''challenge''.

** Others have argued that the message itself ''is'' actually subtle when compared to other GreenAesop[=s=] - or at least it was for the time.
*** And AnAesop that went overlooked was the fate of the town in the TV Special - once the Truffula trees were gone, they picked up and moved to brighter pastures, as any GhostTown in the Western US[[note]]Established during the Gold Rush in the 1800s[[/note]] can attest to being TruthInTelevision.

* TearJerker: Any DarkReprise played during the exoduses of the Barbaloots, Swamy-swams, Hummingfish and Once-Lers. Also the song Once-Ler sings when he's analyzing himself, guilty of what he's done and personally ashamed to be a Once-Ler.
