$4.99 DVD/Amazon FSSS for the ORIGINAL Horton Hears a Who, with Theodore Giesal AKA Dr. Seuss and Chuck Jones, the same combo who gave us the original video version of the Grinch. I accidentally received the remake when I ordered it from GoHastings, they let me keep it and sent me the original version that I ordered. The more recent one is definitely inferior, and made charges to the original storyline to increase the running time from 25 minutes to 86 minutes. Dr. Suess would spend years trimming and redoing the drafts of his books until he got them just right - and 25 minutes really is the proper running time for this story. Most of the extra 61 minutes in the modern version is filler, plus various substitutes for genuine humor that did make Jim Carrey the right voice for that Horton. However, that is not the very kind, genuine character that the original Horton was - and the story suffers for it. My three year old son adores the original story - and he neither likes the Wickersham Brothers, and he finds them scarey! A good story's a good story - no matter how short.
