Awesome: Horton Hears a Who!
  • To date, this is the ONLY full length movie adaptation of a Dr Seuss book to be given a positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Great work to the creators for making the film work somehow.
  • Horton chases Vlad for the clover. This is the ONLY time we really see Horton angry in chasing down the clover, and it is awesome.
  • Horton is given a perfectly plausible way to get out of being roped and caged. All he has to do is say that the Whos aren't real. He gives it a moment thought, and this is his response.
    Horton: Go ahead. Rope me. Cage me! Do whatever you want, but THERE ARE people on this speck. And they have a mayor who has 96 daughters and 1 son named JoJo who all share a bathroom, whatever that is. And even though you can't hear or see them at all, a person's a person, no matter how small.
  • The Who's Crowd Song. Special mention goes to JoJo for showing off a cool Rube Goldberg Device.
  • "YOPP!"
  • Rudy catching the clover in time, and then standing up to Kangaroo afterwards.
