The Grinch is a green, furry creature with a cold heart, who only gets along with his pet dog
Max. The two live north of Whoville where human-like creatures called The Whos live.
When the cheery Christmas season comes, The Grinch is not bitten by the Christmas bug as the season reminds him of his lonely childhood as an unwanted orphan.
The Whos’ Christmas celebrations agitate The Grinch and he embarks on a mission to dress up as Santa Claus and steal Christmas from The Whos.
When The Whos continue to celebrate Christmas despite The Grinch’s attempt to ruin it, it might just touch his bitter heart.
