Halloween Is Grinch Night/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Non Sequitur Scene: The "Ooga Booga" number. It comes out of nowhere and doesn't do much besides confuse and annoy the three bystanders. In fact, the Grinch's laughter at the end suggests he did it for the sole purpose of amusing himself for about twenty seconds.
  • Foe Yay: "Will...will you please scare me some more, sir? I-I, I sort of like it." Well, Ukariah, that's certainly one way to stall the Grinch.
  • Fridge Logic: For all the complicated nonsense the Whos are able to build for Christmas, they don't have indoor plumbing?
  • Sequelitis: How the Grinch Stole Christmas is considered a classic; this...is not.
  • Tear Jerker: Max's song, oh boy. The fact that the Grinch at one point mocks him during it makes it even sadder.

How many times have I said and said,
How many times have I said in my head,
"What am I doing here?"
"Why am I the slave of this grinchy old crock?"
And I say "how I wish I could turn back the clock,
And have the fine future I had once before,
And again be an innocent puppy once more."
What am I doing here?
Doesn't matter much how,
But my dear old auntie Wolfie wouldn't, I fear,
Very much care for me now.

  • The Woobie: Dear god, Max.
    • And the Wuzzy Woozoo. Also, the flower that the Grinch intentionally crushes with his wagon wheel. It weakly tries to rise up as though it were sentient—and given the nature of Dr. Seuss, probably is.
