The movie’s been out for a while, and my two kids love watching the DVD, especially my 4-year old.
Voiced by Will Arnett (in a Romanian-type accent), there are some really funny lines by Vlad (and about Vlad).
When we first meet Vlad, the jungle-ruling Kangaroo enlists the vulture to destroy the clover that Horton constantly carries with him. (This scene spooks my son a little bit.)
Vlad excitedly tells the Kangaroo what he will do the clover. “I will crush it, then devour it. Then I will regurgitate it, and devour it second time. Two times devoured.”
He then has a rip-roaring chase with Horton over the clover. He’s quite an over-the-top character. The animators and writers did great work with him.
