"You don't have the guts!" - Aloysius O'Hare
Aloysius O'Hare (voiced by Rob Riggle) is the main antagonist of The Lorax. He is the mayor of Thneedville and the founder of O'Hare Air, a company for bottled air. He had the city walled off to hide the environmental destruction outside.
BiographyWhen he was young, he worked as a janitor and had glasses and braces. He saw a Thneed billboard and was inspired to start a buisness. He had oxygen bottled and sold. He became the elected hero of the city and also their mayor. He had bees, flowers, grass, and trees manifactured so that no real oxygen would be made. But when Ted left Thneedville to speak to the Once-ler, he considered it a huge threat and pillaged Ted's room, as well as wrecked Audrey's nature paintings to keep trees from being well-known. After a chase throughout the city, he rallied the citizens up against Ted, Audrey, and Grammy Norma, only for Ted to ram an earthmover through the wall, and O'Hare could only reveal his greedy nature to take control of his city once again. The delivery guy, Cy, who he had threatened to fire, calls him a "greedy dirtbag" before he is removed from Thneedville via a rocket helmet by Morty and McGuirk.
DescritptionO'Hare has short black hair and is rather short himself, although he is idolized by the citizens ("Oh look, it's Aloysius O'Hare!", "The man who found a way to sell air."). He is a tycoon and wears a grey suit and black shoes.
