From the Blu-ray:
A playful pachyderm named Horton becomes a reluctant hero when he discovers the microscopic city of Who-ville on a floating speck of dust and embarks on a hilarious adventure to save the town from the dangers of the jungle. It's a heartwarming hit comedy for the whole family!
One day, Horton the Elephant hears a cry for help coming from a speck of dust. Even though he cannot see anyone on the speck, he decides to help. As it turns out, the speck of dust is home to the Whos, who live in their city of Whoville. Horton assumes the responsibility of protecting the Whos and their home. However, this brings him nothing but torment from some of his neighbors, who refuse to believe that anything could survive on on a tiny speck of dust. One of them, Sour Kangaroo, is determined to destroy the speck and its supposed inhabitants, even invoking the aid of an eagle hitman and the unsavory Wickersham Brothers to carry out her dirty work.
