Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) built the fictional village of Whoville. Whoville was featured in the 1954 book Horton Hears a Who! and the 1957 book How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Whoville is sometimes known as Who-ville. Whoville appears to have a thick cloud layer that an equally thick amount of sound can only penetrate.
There are two versions of Whoville: one contained within a snowflake, and another within a mote of dust (in Horton Hears a Who!). The Whos, slightly wacky architecture and the town’s small size are the three major things they have in common. The question of whether Dr. Seuss meant for the Grinch and Horton to share a universe is probably academic.
Who Resides in Whoville? (Who-ville)
Within Whoville’s speck, several characters known as Whos exist. The Whos are capricious, animal-like beings who dwell in shaped houses and are recognized for their welcoming moods and kind hearts. They have canine snouts and are little, fuzzy humanoids.
On the other hand, the Whos in the live-action film resembles ordinary humans with enormous ears, buckteeth, and unusual haircuts. While the Who youngsters have typical human noses, the adult Whos’ noses are snout shaped.
In addition, they are presented as extremely selfish and materialistic compared to the novel version. A spiteful, cave-dwelling creature named the Grinch lives with his dog, Max, just north of Whoville, atop a steep peak called Mount Crumpit.
