The traveling circus ends up visiting near Mayzie's new Palm Beach residence. She visits the circus just as the egg is due to hatch after 51 weeks in Palm Beach and demands that Horton should return it, without offering him a reward.

According to Geisel's biographers Judith and Neil Morgan, Horton Hatches the Egg was born in , the day after New Year's, when he took a break from drawing in his Park Avenue apartment and went for a walk.

When he returned, he noticed that he had left a window open in his studio and that the wind had blown one sketch on transparent paper on top of another, making it look like an elephant was sitting in a tree. The story had changed with each telling but always involved the fortuitous juxtaposition of drawings of an elephant and a tree. Seuss works. In an early installment of Geisel's cartoon feature "Boids and the Beasties", which began in Judge magazine in , he juxtaposed a bird and an elephant.

In a cartoon for Life magazine, he depicted a dachshund who sits on eggs for storks. In , he drew an illustration for Judge that showed a walrus sitting in a tree, trying to hatch the eggs in a bird nest. Some of his earlier work also featured elephant-bird hybrids, which prefigured the elephant-bird that hatches at the end of Horton Hatches the Egg.

In , Geisel created an advertisement for NBC featuring a sympathetic-looking elephant lashed with ropes and contained in a cage made of sticks, similar to Horton's situation when the hunters capture him in Horton Hatches the Egg.
