** The Grinch himself seems to have gone through this as well. He was at least 53 years old in the original story, but since the movie shows that he went to school with Martha May Whovier, who looks to be in her 20s, he can't be much older than her there.
*** Debatable. May Who looks to be around his 50s, so it's just as likely she's an exceptionally youthful looking person in her 50s. (Think Helen Mirren and you get the idea.)

** Fridge Brilliance! Who's to say that it's not the same speck, but stuck on a snowflake? It would explain why Whoville can have both warm and snowy weather. Plus in ''{{Seussical}}'', the Grinch makes a cameo in the speck of dust Horton finds.
