Whoville is a fictional town created by the American children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel. It appears in the books Horton Hears a Who! (1954) and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957). Its residents are known collectively as the Whos, a plural form of the pronoun who. The town is filled with different kinds of Whos and their names may seem unrelated, but they all have something in common.
The Mayor of Whoville, Ned McDodd, is a colorful and eccentric character. He is the first Who to make contact with Horton. He also divides his time between Ned and his wife, Dr. Mary Lou LaRue. Other prominent Whos include Cindy Lou, the young and brave Euchariah, and JoJo, the mayor’s son. Whoville has a number of quirky characters, including a grinning owl named JoJo, who breaks the sound barrier and saves Whoville!
Whoville’s unique appearance is also a trademark of the film. Characters in Horton Hears a Who! often wear drab clothing in solid colors or with polka dots or stripes. Many of the clothes feature matching accessories. Adult women in Whoville have hair that is either pink or yellow, while the men have very little hair. The town is a magical place where you can find an abundance of Whoville souvenirs and gifts!
A major character in the live-action adaptation of How the Grinch Stole Christmas is Martha May Whovier. The mayor of Whoville is a mysterious figure who was created by a group of friends who argued over the existence of Santa Claus. Creating Whoville as a fictional place where the Grinch would be welcomed was an easy solution for both the townspeople and the Grinch. It’s a fun, funny, and heartwarming story that will have you laughing and crying throughout the holidays.
Another character in Whoville is Cindy Lou Who. In her movie appearance, the Grinch’s daughter, Cindy Lou, wants relief for her mother. She is played by Rashida Jones. She is a former actress who quit acting at the age of 18 and fronted a rock band, The Pretty Reckless. She’s infamous for her heavy black eye makeup and disheveled hair, and she adopted the Grinch as her pet.
The Whos have a unique combination of human and dog features. They live in a town with a zany and curvy town. The storybook and the movie starred the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1, and Thing 2. The story focuses on the eccentricity of the inhabitants of Whoville. They all have their own distinctive traits. And if you have a soft spot for the Cat in the Hat, or love all things Cindy-Lou Who, you’ll find them in the film.
