With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions, the Grinch only sees his neighbours in Whoville when he runs out of food. Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their celebrations. When they declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realises there is only one way for him to get some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas!
