HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS MOVIE

November 13, 2023

“How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” is a classic animated television special that first aired in 1966. It was based on the 1957 children’s book of the same name written by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel). The TV special was directed by Chuck Jones and featured the narration of Boris Karloff.

The story is set in the whimsical town of Whoville, where the Whos are joyfully preparing for Christmas festivities. However, high on Mount Crumpit lives the Grinch, a green, grouchy creature with a heart “two sizes too small” who despises Christmas and all the noise and cheerfulness associated with it.

The Grinch concocts a devious plan to stop Christmas from coming. On Christmas Eve, he dresses as Santa Claus and, accompanied by his loyal dog Max, descends into Whoville. The Grinch sneaks into the homes of the Whos and steals all of their Christmas decorations, presents and even the roast beast.

To his surprise, despite waking up to find their material possessions missing, the Whos in Whoville gather in the town square to sing and celebrate Christmas. The Grinch is profoundly moved by this display of the true spirit of Christmas, realizing that it’s about more than just material things.

In a change of heart, the Grinch decides to return all the stolen items to the Whos. He returns to Whoville and with the help of Max, returns everything just in time for Christmas morning. The Whos welcome the Grinch and he carves the roast beast as a gesture of goodwill.

The story ends with the Grinch learning the true meaning of Christmas — that it’s not about presents and decorations, but about love, kindness and togetherness.
