The classic is brought to life with famous voices like Jim Carrey (as Horton) and Steve Carell (as the Mayor of Who-ville). Some funny guys for a funny story.

Horton Hears a Who! (1970)

If you're not willing to commit to a feature-length film, this TV version clocks in at just 26 minutes, perfect for all those with a particularly flighty attention span.

Hear about the film adaptation through the cultural critics at NPR.
