Heartwarming / Horton Hears a Who!

The Movie

  • There's something rather sweet that Horton the elephant's best friend is a mouse who never stopped trying to help him.
  • Horton and the Mayor, despite their unusual circumstances, grow to be close friends, giving each other strength when their own worlds didn't believe in them.
  • Somehow they managed to sneak the line from Horton Hatches The Egg into the movie, as Horton explains that he promised the mayor to get whoville to a safe place. "And an elephant's faithful 100 percent."
  • The whos finally believe in the mayor, cheering for the elephant that's going to help them.
  • Rudy giving Horton the clover, and shortly after, Horton giving Kangaroo the cookie.
    • And then Kangaroo placing a small plant like an umbrella over the clover.
  • When Horton starts to sing "Can't Fight This Feeling," after all he did to help the Whoes against all odds, no one deserves to called "A Candle in the window/On a cold dark winter's night" than him.
    • The fact that everyone, including Kangaroo and Vlad, sang along the Sudden Musical Ending, gives the viewers a good feeling that everything finally turned out alright for everyone.
    • Jojo joining in. After spending the entire film (and implicitly much of his life) saying nothing his voice really has a chance to shine here.
