Scene shows the whos getting ready for Christmas down in Whoville as the grinch looks down on them from his mountain cave with displeasure. The Who's are singing and decorating for christmas, the grinch dislikes christmas but no one knows why. Perhaps his head was screwed on wrong, that his shoes were too tight, but it's because his heart two sizes too small (animate this). He stands outside of his cave and with a grinchy frown looks down at Whoville, complaining about how the Whos are hanging their mistletoe wreaths and stockings up.
The Grinch is complaining about singing saying hat there's too much noise. He says. "I MUST find a way to stop Christmas from coming. His face becomes sinister as he comes up with an idea. He dresses up as Santa Claus and dresses his dog Max as a reindeer by tying horns on top of his head. He gets a bunch of sacks and loads them on the sleigh and yells "Giddy up" to Max. And they are on there way
The sleigh goes down towards Whoville, where every Who is asleep dreaming (have dream bubble over the top of sleeping who). He stops at his first house and climbs on top of the roof, carrying empty bags up with him. The Grinch slides down the chimney, taking the stockings first. He then goes around the entire room and takes every present, wearing a malicious grin on his face. He goes to the kitchen, and takes the Whos' feast, and stuffs it up the chimney. He looks at the christmas tree next and grabs it, he tries to stuff it up the chimney. As he tries to shove it up the chimney, he hears a noise behind him.
The Grinch shows up at Little Cindy-Lou Who's house and is taking the tree when Cindy wakes up and see's the supposed Santa Claus with the tree. She's like Why Santa Claus Why? And The Grinch Quickly replies. "Sweetie, there's a light one this tree that won't light up on one side. So I'm taking home to my workshop my dear to fix." She believes him and goes back to bed. He goes up the Chimney with the tree.
He goes to the chimney and stuffs the tree up, before he leaves he takes the log from their fire. The Grinch left behind nothing but hooks and wire, and a crumb too small for a mouse. He did the same to all the other Whos, he takes all their presents and decorations up towards the top of Mt. Crumpet. He is humming happily, thinking about the Whos waking up to no Christmas and crying. He stops to listen and hear their crying but find that they're singing merrily instead. He becomes very confused as to how Christmas still came anyways without the presents and decorations.
After the Grinch stole christmas he put his hand on his ear to listen for the cries of the Who's. But instead of hearing the cries he heard their voices singing, and realized Christmas doesn't come from the store but comes from the heart.
