While the original book version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas never shares how the Grinch met his dog Max, a Grinch prequel from the 1990s provides an answer: Max scratches an itch the Grinch can’t reach and the Grinch decides to keep him as a pet.
Why was the Grinch so cruel?
He has spent the past 53 years living in seclusion on a cliff, overlooking the town of Whoville. In contrast to the cheerful Whos, the Grinch is misanthropic and mean-tempered. The reason for this is a source of speculation; the consensus among the Whos is that he was born with a heart that is “two sizes too small”.
Is Max from the Grinch a weiner dog?
Yep! That’s the only pup that would put up with the grinches antics! Arya, I mean Max says he’s definitely a weenie.
Is Grinch a bad word?
Ted calling Lily a “grinch”, and Future Ted saying that Ted didn’t say “grinch”, but a “very, very bad word” instead is a reference to A Christmas Story, where Ralphie says “fudge”.
