I am sure you already Googled the question, but, it’s Doctor Who refs, with Rose being one of the most popular of The Doctor’s companions. For my 2¢, my 3 favorite companions he had, in descending order, were Martha, Alice, Rose. Martha for being the most realistic, Alice for being the most flawed and human, and yeah, Rose, for just having believable ‘chemistry’ with both the 9th & 10th Doctor.
Can this explain the Great Seussian Size Discontinuity?
Recall from _Horton Hears a Who_ that Whos are tiny, microsocpic creatures, whose entire society can fit on a dust mote. From _How the Grinch Stole Christmas_ (and also Ces’s cartoon above), we see that Whos and the Grinch are about the same size. From _The Cat in the Hat Meets the Grinch_, we see that the Cat in the Hat is also about this size. Yet in _The Cat in the Hat_, we see that the Cat in the Hat is roughly the size of a human being!
In the past, I’ve always explained this using the Cat in the Hat’s magic. After all, we know from _The Cat in the Hat Comes Back_ that he has 26 smaller cats hidden inside his hat. While none of them are microscopic, this hints at size-distorting powers. Then the Grinch would be microscopic like the Whos, and the Cat in the Hat can move between both worlds. However, this is not very satisfying.
But perhaps the dust mote that Horton found is actually a damaged Tardis, much bigger on the inside than on the outside, inside which the Whos of that story are trapped. Then the Grinch and the Whos are (like the Doctor) human-sized (although possibly Gallifreyan rather than Earthling). This is a much more satisfying explanation!
If we’re talking about continuity in the world of Dr. Seuss, the how about this: is “Grinch Night” a prequel or sequel to the Christmas one? If its a prequel, then why did Max return in “Grinch Stole Christmas”? If sequel, then why is Grinch evil again?
Then again, nothing really makes sense in Dr. Seuss’s stories.
