On the outskirts of Whoville, there lives a green, revenge-seeking Grinch who plans on ruining the Christmas holiday for all of the citizens of the town.
Everything in the film revolves around a swirl, like the original drawings of the book. This includes the clouds. In several scenes, the initials "C.H.", "J.C.", and "R.H." briefly form as the clouds move. They stand for Clint Howard, Jim Carrey, and Ron Howard.
Inside a snowflake like the one on your sleeve, there happened a story you must see to believe.
An overview shot of The Grinch building the sled reveals the camera's shadow.
Near the end of the Imagine Entertainment logo, snow begins to fall, the snow continues to fall even after the words "Imagine Entertainment" fade away.
Included on the DVD release of the film are some deleted and extended scenes. One is an extended version of the Grinch wreaking havoc in Whoville by using a marble, which causes a domino effect. Another is a scene where Lou Lou Who is called into a parent-teacher conference because Cindy Lou Who wanted to do a report on the Grinch. A final scene reveals that the tree the Grinch cut out from the floor is the Whoville police officer. The officer comes downstairs sleepwalking and the Grinch locks him in the linen closet.
