CITIZENS OF THE JUNGLE

CAT
Now think of an elephant lumbering through.

(We now see HORTON THE ELEPHANT.)

CITIZENS OF THE JUNGLE
Who who wah dah
Who who who wah dah dah dah

BOY (spoken)
Horton!

CAT
Yes, Horton!

CAT & BOY
Horton Hears a Who!

HORTON
On the fifteenth of May
In the jungle of Nool
In the heat of the day,
In the cool of the pool,
He was splashing

JUNGLE CITIZENS
Splash!

HORTON
Enjoying the jungle's great joys
When Horton the elephant

BOY
Horton the Elephant

BIRD GIRLS, ALL
Horton the elephant

HORTON
Heard a small noise.

MAYOR (Offstage, distant and tiny)
Help! Help!

BIRD GIRL #1
So Horton stopped splashing
He looked toward the sound

HORTON
That's funny.

BIRD GIRLS
Thought Horton-

HORTON
There's no one around.

BIRD GIRL #3
Then he heard it again

BIRD GIRL #2
Just a very faint yelp

HORTON
As if some tiny person were calling for help

MAYOR (Offstage, distant and tiny)
Help! Help!

HORTON
I'll help you

BIRD GIRLS
Said Horton

HORTON
But who are you, and where?

BIRD GIRLS
He looked and he looked.

BIRD GIRLS, HORTON
He could see nothing there
But a small speck of dust
Blowing past...

(All follow an invisible speck of dust with their eyes, as it shoots past and stops in front of HORTON.)

HORTON, BIRD GIRLS
Through the air.

HORTON
I say! How confusing!
I've never heard tell
Of a small speck of dust that is able to yell,
So you know what I think?
Why I think that there must be someone on top of that small speck of dust.
Some poor little person
Who's shaking with fear
That he'll blow in the pool!
He has no way to steer!
He's alone in the universe!
I'll just have to save him
Because after all,
A person's a person, no matter how small.
A person's a person no matter how-

HORTON JUNGLE CITIZENS
Small... Who who wah dah
who who who wah dah dah dah
who who wah dah
who who

BIRD GIRLS # 1,2,3
So, gently, and using
The greatest of care,
The elephant stretched
His great trunk through the air,
And he lifted the dust speck
And carried it over
And placed it down,

HORTON (spoken)
Safe!

BIRD GIRLS
On a very soft clover.

(THE SOUR KANGAROO makes an impressive entrance.)
