“Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” tells the tale of the green, grumpy creature that despises anything to do with Christmas. The Grinch, who has a heart that is “two sizes too small” lives on the outskirts of Whoville, which is occupied by the Whos.

As the town eagerly prepares for Christmas, the Grinch comes up with a plan to steal all their presents and items so they can’t celebrate the holiday or participate in any festivities. However, when he runs into little Cindy Lou, the Grinch just may finally gain a true understanding of Christmas.

“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is based on the children’s story originally published in 1957. Next year, Dr. Seuss fans will be able to head to the theaters to catch an all new computer animated adaption of the popular Christmas story, scheduled to be released Nov. 9, 2018.
