Jane Kangaroo

Jane Kangaroo is the former main antagonist of Horton Hears a Who. She is a busybody and creator of the jungle's laws who is skeptical about the existence of the Whos and Whoville on a dust speck (due to being under the pretense that anything which cannot be seen, heard or felt is nonexistent). She is also mother of Rudy Kangaroo, who thinks of her to be very embarrassing. She is a major antagonist in the first season of The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss and a supporting character in the second season.

The kangaroo was christened Jane, and the name is retained for Wubbulous World. Like her literary portrayal, Jane is a snobbish matron, and the mother of Junior Kangaroo, and resides in the Jungle of Nool. Her valuing of the status quo and insistence on order occasionally precipitates crises. Notably, in "The Mystery of Winna-Bango Falls," Jane orders the Winna-Bango Falls residents to stop playing with fruit peels and instead to throw them away, causing an environmental catastrophe. While often serving as an antagonist, Jane tends to be depicted more sympathetically than the show's other more villainous troublemakers such as Yertle or the Grinch, her worst actions often attributed to delusions of grandeur or short sightedness rather than intentional malice or selfishness. In most cases she realises the consequences of her mistakes, she is repentant. She is also shown to have a motherly personality, being very protective of Junior and sometimes helping Horton care for his son, Morton, if through her own eccentrically regimented way. In keeping with her obsession with order in the jungle, Jane is also recurrently shown to value tidiness and housekeeping. [1]
