Horton the Elephant is the kind-hearted elephant character who first appeared in the 1940  book, Horton Hatches the Egg.

Appearance

Horton is a Grey (presumably Indian) elephant with blue eyes. 

  • His ears sprout like wings.
  • He has a tuft of black hair on the top of his head.
  • He has a round body 

Personality

In each of Horton's book appearances he endures a good amount of ridicule, for believing in something that no one else does. In 1942 Horton the Elephant appeared in Horton Hatches the Egg.

Horton never loses faith though, even after being roped and caged he continually insisted that the Whos existed, which they did. In The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss, he was performed by John Kennedy.

Horton is also one of the main characters of Seussical, played by Kevin Chamberlin,  combining his roles in Horton Hatches the Egg and Horton Hears a Who. The basic storyline of the musical is centered around him.
