How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Corrected entry: At the beginning the Grinch is looking down on Whoville and drumming all his fingers. But when it cuts to another angle, he's suddenly only tapping one of them.


Correction: It doesn't take a minute to go from drumming all fingers to just tapping one of them. They wouldn't need to change scenes for that.

Corrected entry: At the end of the story the Grinch has blue eyes except for one shot - when he becomes shocked seeing the sled full of Christmas things begin to slide off the mountain - where they're momentarily red again.


Correction: This is not a mistake, it is done deliberately. It could be because of the stress/shock of losing the sleigh.

Corrected entry: The Grinch has red eyes until he has a change of heart. Then they turn blue and remain that way for the rest of the story.


Correction: This isn't trivia, but one of the main plot points showing the Grinch's change of heart.

Narrator: "Pooh-pooh to the Whos" he was grinchily humming.
The Grinch: They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming. They're just waking up, I know just what they'll do. Their mouths will hang open a minute or two. Then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry "booo-hooo."



At the end when the sled full of Christmas stuff is on the mountaintop, it starts sliding off the edge. It's going fast enough that it should be long gone by the time the Grinch reaches it, but when he does it's still right near the top of the mountain.



The iconic song, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" was sung by Thurl Ravenscroft. Mr. Ravenscroft (who died in 2005 at 91 years old) is also famous for providing the deep, resonant voice of Tony the Tiger, the brand mascot for Kellogg's Frosted Flakes.
