The premise of the show is The Grinch is annoyed by the town of Whoiville's noisy Christmas festivities and decides to put an end to the holiday by disguising himself as Santa and stealing all the presents and food, and even the Christmas tree.

The cartoon came out in 1966 and was narrated by Boris Karloff who also provided the voice of the Grinch.

"How The Grinch Stole Christmas" was turned into a live-action feature film in 2000 starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch and Taylor Momsen (Lead singer of the Pretty Reckless) as Cindy Lou Who. The movie, along with the cartoon and the book have all become American classics.

In the story of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the introduction of the film states that Whoville is located inside a snowflake, south of Mt. Crumpit within the mountainous high range of Pontoos which up until recently everyone thought was a fictional place.

Due to a recent development in St. Ignace, Michigan, some are saying Whoville is located near Mackinac Island where the Mackinac Bridge crosses into the Upper Peninsula.

According to a post made on the St Ignace Police Department's Facebook Page, "Due to his past track record of stealing Christmas, the Grinch was escorted to the Hometown Holiday event last night by the Police Department. It didn't take long before the Grinch was caught stealing presents and was taken into custody by Police Chief James. He's being held without bail until after Christmas."

It looks like no one will have to fear that the Grinch will steal Christmas this year since he is now incarcerated. A trial date has yet to be set.

That may be true, but spending the night in the Grinch's cave complete with Who-hash and Who-pudding could be cool too. You can rent the uniquely designed and decorated cave to spend a night in through Vacasa. Take a look inside the very Grinchy, yet adorable "home".
