Lorax's lady by Ghost-Peacock Lorax's lady by Ghost-Peacock
For the longest time the Lorax was one of those characters I saw as sorta asexual, same with Fox in Socks and the Grinch. They don't need love interests and I can't think of a situation where they'd be in love anyway.

But then I was trying to get to sleep with Dr. Seuss' Sleep Book… and sleep shipped this up. The Bumble Tub Tubbers seem green enough, respecting nature enough to hope it doesn't lead them to their doom while they sleep, so who knows. Plus this one seems older, which is just right for him. She likes a man with morality.

Who am I kidding? He's in it for that lady stache...

"Aromantic" would be the correct term. Oh well, confusing asexuals ("aces") with aromantics is a common mistake - one not always means another. :] For that matter, I see all Seussian creatures as biologically ace - pretty much like all other toons, with kids being delivered by a stork / falling from the sky like stars / created with paws + heart and a lot of magic - and this just feels right to me.

As for this couple? Why, I don't see what there'd be not to love for the Lorax in a cream-colored fuzzy lady with a lovely ladystache. :XD: No, really, I love the idea of mustache being a gender-neutral thing (but still differ from male ones in females). And I love the Sleep Book, even if got to know it only by a few trailer pages. Not to mention the description of its "touch-and-feel" version just made my cute-o-meter hit red.

(On a side note, did you give her a name already or she'll remain just Miss TubTubbers ?)

Oh. That sounds right though I think the Grinch and Fox are still asexual as well as aromantic.
I think cartoon characters (depending on genre and film) come into their world no different than they would in real life. Seuss is a touch subject because for every think that has parents there are some that just sorta pop out of nowhere. My Sam/Gus child is like that, having been born out of a hat trick.

Anywho, I think her name is Fubb. My headcanon is that the Lorax lives in the Sneetch colony after the truffula forest goes extinct and she washes ashore when her tub went astray, making her a "flubb". Mustache courtship then takes place but they give up their relationship so she can find her fellow tubbers again.

Well then, at least there still is an ace way of birth in your headcanon and this is cool. :thumbsup:

Hmm... Fubb, Lady Fubb. With a nice backstory at that. Would do my take on this idea one day, maybe. :confused:

Personally I like non-ace anyway. I think it bothers me when people feel the need to explain how a baby came to be because somehow we couldn't figure it out for ourselves, as if the majority of fan fiction readers don't know how that happens to begin with. When I was a kid I knew that Simba and Nala had a cub but when I got the talk it's not like I needed all the extra details. It's a Disney movie. I don't need those details...

To each their own :) It's okay by me if others prefer the non-asexual variant - as far as the details for it stay offscreen.

Then again, I'm glad that my ace variant didn't get misread and labeled as weird. Glad you and several other people either liked or at least don't mind my idea of the Lorax being "pregnant" (in very big "") with summer and the way it's "born", and how that doesn't seem to bother anyone. :phew:
