The Grinch over the years

Invented by Dr Seuss, the Grinch first appeared in the 1957 children’s book ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’. The tale told of a strange hairy, pot-bellied creature (who was avocado green in colour illustrations) and lived in isolation on a cliff, overlooking the town of Whoville. Unlike the cheerful Whos, the Grinch is mean and grumpy and especially hates Christmas. In fact, he hates it so much that he disguises himself as the big FC and steals Christmas from the Whos.

The Grinch as a cultural icon

The Grinch has become an anti-icon of Christmas – a symbol of those who hate the holidays (much like Ebenezer Scrooge), and ‘grinch’ has entered common speech as a term to describe anybody with an anti-Christmas spirit. In the end, though, the tale of the Grinch is one of redemption as he brings Christmas back, joins with the Whos in Whoville and grows his small heart ‘three sizes’. We think he’s one of the greatest cartoon characters of all time and we totally heart him. He’s been played and voiced by many different actors, including Jim Carrey and Benedict Cumberbatch and it’s impossible to imagine Christmas without him.
