A grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville.
The book the Grinch throws at his alarm clock is called 'Spelunking for Beginners', spelunking is the activity and hobby of cave exploring. Since the Grinch lives in a cave on Mount Crumpit, this could have helped him in process of carving out the interior of his home long ago.
As he looked at the girl, he felt like he would melt. If he did what she did, would he feel what she felt?
Several times the Grinch stands on a rock outcropping by his cave that overlooks Whoville. On long shots of his cave, the outcropping is missing.
Cindy-Lou asks Santa-Grinch to bring something to make her mom's life better. Over the end titles, we see that The Grinch has created a number of labor-saving devices, which do indeed make her happier and her life easier.
The UK theatrical release was censored in order to obtain a U classification; the distributor chose to remove several uses of mild bad language (ass) from a song number in order to avoid the film receiving a PG rating uncut.
