Based on the beloved children's book by Dr. Seuss, ``How the Grinch Stole Christmas'' follows the exploits of the title character who is infuriated by the celebration he sees down in Whoville each year at Christmastime. He vows to stop it and -- dressed as Santa -- drives a sleigh into town on Christmas Eve, removing all traces of the impending celebration. He watches gleefully from his perch on the mountain above, sure that when the Whos awake and see that their holiday decorations, gifts and feast are gone, they will be sad. To his surprise, the Whos celebrate anyway, leading to an unexpected response from the Grinch.
