"One Elephant. One World. One Story."

This light animation feature is what I needed to take my mind off my hectic, last minute wedding preps! It has a good plot, endearing characters voiced by comedians like Jim Carrey, Steve Carell and Carol Burnett. Plus it had a never say die attitude thriving throughout the animation.

A cheerful elephant named Horton hears a distant voice emanating from a speck of dust which has settled itself on a flower. No one believes him but he persists and goes out of his way to ensure that the people living in that speck, a city called Whoville are protected from extinction. The film follows Horton lil adventures through the jungle as well as the people in Whoville led by their eccentric major. Either way both Horton and the Mayor of Whoville must convince the people around them of the existence of each other. A difficult task given the cynicism prevailing in both worlds. The film had its funny dialogue and enough cute antics courtesy of the lovable Horton to generate some chuckles. It had its villains who provided the conflict to the main lead (Horton & the Mayor of Whoville) like the mother kangaroo bent on destroying the speck as well as the vulture, Vlad who was deemed the enforcer of the destruction.

Lastly, I liked the main theme of the animation which is "After all, a person is a person, no matter how small." I couldn't agree more!
