Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Horton Hears a Who...

This animated adventure includes some cartoon type violence as well as characters being roped and dragged into a cage, attacked by a vulture, and threatened with boiling oil. Horton experiences some moments of peril and mocking while trying to save the “Whos.” Another character chokes on a bone. The Mayor of Whoville accidently staples himself in the head and gets a misguided shot of numbing serum in his arm from a dentist. The script contains a couple of mild, brief potty humor jokes and repeated use of “boob” as a name-calling term for a person who is considered unintelligent or mistaken in his opinion.
