Is the Grinch A Mass MURDERER?! – How the Grinch Stole Christmas! – Cartoon Conspiracy (Ep. 133)

April 26, 2019 By

The animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” is a classic holiday movie to watch ever year for sure, but could the Grinch have actually done significantly more harm than once thought? Through the simple act of stealing a bunch of stuff, is it possible The Grinch put all of Whoville in danger? Is it possible the Grinch is a MASS MURDERER?!

    What if the events of the grinch happened first (Leaving out the 2000 live adaptation), the speck floats around the colder regions, the Grinch story takes place, then the speck is placed on the clover by Horton after hearing the speck talk, which would cause Who-Vill to become warm, which makes the ice melt. since this would be after the Grinch has already joined the who's, it would make sense that he would join in with the singing in Horton Hears a Who

    I think that the green who in the animated Horton hears a who is some sort of ancestor of the grinch and Horton is a considerable amount of time before the grinch I also think that they are singing as a celebratory tradition because even in the book it shows that all the animals protect them and this is just them remembering it.

    If it wasn’t the same from Horton Hears a Who he still was going to be a murderer. He stole all of their food so they would starve

    Let's all take a moment to understand that in "Horton Hears a Who" the story explicitly has all of the characters aggressively attack Horton because of his claims of hearing voices from a speck, when no one else could hear it. And so their only rational decision is to destroy the thing he was talking to, unless there was proof that it could speak back.

    Imagine if such a scenario played out in real life. Where an entire community attacked a single individual because he was talking to a small object, only for no one else to hear it, and as a response, everyone then gangs up on the one person to chase them down, imprison them, and be forced to watch as they destroy the thing they were speaking to.

    Just think about that for a moment.

    There is also a large difference between the size of the town in the two. In Horton its more of a city where in the Grinch its a small town. Horton has buildings with multiple levels and the Grinch does not. It makes more sense that Horton takes place after and the city has grown

    Maybe the grinch has a rare disease like dwarfism, or the wolf man disease thing where lots of hair grows on people. It's just a rare disease that some who's have.

    I think he could have putten them in danger not because the outside world wont hear them but because maybe they needed the sound to keep away big animals or somethin like that?

    Wait, if the Grinch takes place on a snowflake how did he crossover with the Cat in the Hat?

    Apparently, in the Grinch it takes place on a snowflake.

    Technically the Grinch is trying to get rid of Christmas

  19. Well the Grinch should move to a better speck honestly I like evil Grinch better than nice because a Grinch is a Grinch let him be evil it's funner that way all a Grinch needs is himself and his max

  20. Adrian Martinez Dorsett

    The Grinch obviously had progenitors and from what we're told it's very probable they lived on Whoville, that means that Grinch was our Grinch's father and thus the theory still makes sense. Great theory!

    Best Cinematic Universe: MCU or DSCU. DR SEUSS CINEMATIC UNIVERSE:) My theory: The Grinch lived in Whoville as a child. Once the people in the town were saved from being boiled to death in HHAWho, they celebrated by singing the songs they sang to save themselves every Christmas/ Horton-day. This annoys this Grinch, because the huge singing in HHAWho has severely messed up his hearing. So he moves away into the mountain. And then, HTGSC
