Name Those Critters by KessieLou Name Those Critters by KessieLou
I'll put this in the Scraps soon (to avoid breaking the laws)

It's a collage of the Truffula animals (with the Lorax and Once-Ler in a few of the pictures), and the names I give to each of them (except for the ones who have official names).

And here's some info on them that I learned from the movie.

*The Humming Fish Trio: Dore'mi, Faso, and LaTido- No much to tell the differences between the three (although LaTido is the smaller one with the big eyes), but when they are together, they are in the order of the music tunes that are named after.

Dore`mi is the leader, and always on the right hand side

Faso is the middle one, and only one of the trio that can lower his voice

and LaTido has a love for playing card games (as seen in one scene wheere he is playing cards with Bill, Pipsqueak, and Lorax).

*Rufus the Fat Bar-ba-loot: I've heard that he has an official name somewhere, but I think "Rufus" is a more suitable name for him because he looks and acts like one.:giggle:

*Cocoa, Choaco, and Mocha: Out of all of the Bar-ba-loots, these three are the only ones that look alike, so it's obvious that they are triplets

*Finn (single picture on the left) & Gill (single picture the right): Finn and Gill are the only fish that have official names given to them by the IE.
They don't have as much screen-time as the Singing trio, but they are easy to identify.

They were the two fish that didn't move when the Lorax was about to arrive; with one smacking the other on the back of head saying "Way to do, stupid!"

They are found sleeping in one of the Once-ler's cups together (don't ask)

And Gill is the only fish with blue eyes. That snap-shot of him on the grill Ler family's RV would make one immature little rhyme right here.:XD:

*Benny- Like Rufus, Benny isn't the brightest of the Bar-ba-loots.
Heck in one sceen he tried to duck his head to the ground like the swans did.:XD:

*Hogarth and Wilomina- I over-looked and I found that there was one adult male Swamee Swan, though it was hard to find him because the animators couldn't make us tell the differences between the males and females (besides their necks and the eye-brow/eye-lash thing).

I guess the Swamme Swans live like chickens (a harem of female birds led by only one male bird who is also their husband).

As for Wilomina, she's Bill's mother, and Hogarth's Alpha-mate

*Philomina, Belina, and Cornellia- They are Wilomina's sister who are always proud and competitive on who lays the biggest egg.
If Bill wasn't so cross-eyed, he would've known his father, Hogarth, is also the father of the cousins he might have.
So that would mean his cousins are also his half-siblings, and his dad is also his uncle.:XD:

*Bernie: Bernie is a happy little bar-ba-loot, but he's also accident-prone.

He was the bar-ba-loot that Once-Ler hit with his guitar, and he was the one Brett and Chett used as football and ran over him (poor guy).

*Aiken, Lennon, and Lambert- These three aren't the Singing trio, because earlier the Singing trio was seen climbing up a tree and imatating rooster-crows.

*Wee-Runt - Pip is not the only small bar-ba-loot, as we also see that he has a twin brother that is the same height as him. Hence the name "Wee-Runt"

The rest I just fiddled around.

I think the fat bar-ba-loot's name might be Lue. On the DVD there are three short movies and in the making of one of the short movies they call him Lue. (If I spelled that right) I'm not sure if its his real name but it might be. ^_^' Hope this helps.

I love the names you picked for them!!! :heart:

Once-ler:All I remeber is Pisqueak name

Me: *to Once-Ler* That's because that was the only name the Lorax ever referenced (mostly because Pip is like a son to him). And it is hard to remember all of the animals' names since most of them are either twins, triplets, and even pentalets (5).
