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.
Tim Burton's adaptation would've been darker, and the Grinch would've been a more despicable character.
Inside a snowflake like the one on your sleeve, there happened a story you must see to believe.
Just before the Grinch and Max return to the mountain through the pipe, Max is missing his collar. It's back on him after they arrive at the dump on the mountain.
The MPPA rating screen at the end reads "PG-13," but the movie is actually rated "PG."
