A collection of Whos:
The Whos are a group of fuzzy, tiny creatures that range in height from tall to short. They all occupy the same little space in Whoville. The Whobilation, a large Christmas celebration, and the Who Centennial are two of their favourite holidays. They are a very happy race that adores festivities (A ceremony celebrating 100 years of peace and harmony in Whoville). In the novels Horton Hears a Who and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, as well as the 1977 television special Grinch Night, The Whos and Whoville itself are depicted.
In the books and cartoons, the Whos are notably humanlike, and, apart from their size (which can vary greatly), snouts and button-like noses, would pass as humans easily.
In the Horton Hears a Who film, the Whos are slightly more simian in appearance. They are furry, have short legs, long arms, a long pear-shaped torso, and a vaguely feline face. Their feet are toeless and pointed, and they have four fingers on each hand. Overall, they bear a resemblance to the Grinch’s TV design. They also appear to be slightly elastic, as demonstrated by Mayor McDodd and his son JoJo. Their eye color tends to match the dominant color of their fur.
JoJo’s agility and the peculiar design of Whoville are only two examples of the Whos’ amazing sense of balance. They also appear to be remarkably adaptable and resilient in Horton Hears a Who, surviving the city’s almost total devastation with no recorded losses.
With the exception of their hair, the Whos were created to resemble more human in Grinch Night than in prior appearances (for most of the Whos). They also lack the distinctively bright fur that gives them their identity and wear robes with buttons on the breast; in addition, their distinctive snouts have been replaced with conventional human noses. Sergeant Samuel McPherson of One Who also looks to be almost totally human in appearance due to the fact that his helmet.
The most notable Whos in Whoville are its mayor Ned McDodd, who is the first Who to interact with the elephant Horton, Dr. Hoovey (whose role in the cartoon is shared by Ned and Dr. LaRue), the young and diminutive Cindy Lou Who, the brave Euchariah Who, who thwarted the Grinch on Grinch Night in the cartoon of the same name by facing his fears, Ned’s wife Sally O’Malley, Dr. Mary Lou La
