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


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


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, combining his roles in Horton Hatches the Egg and Horton Hears a Who he sang Alone in the Universe with JoJo the small boy in Whoville. The basic storyline is centered around him. Horton the Elephant also appeared in Seussical the Musical and even one of the upcoming Starfy games, The Legendary Starfy 4. In this game, he appears with Morton the Elephant Bird.
