* Throughout the climax, the Grinch eyes change to blue to signify his HeelFaceTurn, but then alternate back to red in certain scenes. This seems like an animation error, but most of the instances this happens is when the presents are at risk of being destroyed, and thus his newfound love for Christmas risks being disillusioned.

* Let's back up to the opening sequence: this entire town exists in a ''snowflake''. It's going to eventually melt (unless it's some sort of magic snowflake that never lands).

* A bitter, cave-dwelling humanoid creature that loathes the noise of celebration, who breaks into homes to stop it and has a name that starts with "Gr"? Was the Grinch related to [[Literature/{{Beowulf}} a certain legendary monster]], and if so, weren't the Whos ''lucky'' he only snatched gifts and decorations?

** Because even if Christmas shouldn't be about material things, ''stealing'' other people's things is still wrong. Returning them wouldn't make up for breaking into peoples' houses, but at least it's better than letting them be destroyed.

* How exactly did the Grinch's moms feel when he fled for the mountains and never came back down? Think about that: Your son, who you love, has been so thoroughly ruined by his classmates that he runs away and never comes home...and by the time you see him again, he's become a nasty, bitter, deranged old hermit who hates everyone and everything. Yeesh, can you say AdultFear?

** This one could double as [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Fridge Heartwarming]]: He adopted the little guy, didn't he? First sign that [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold he's not all bad]].

* While the film gets criticized for making the Whos less sympathetic, they still seem thoroughly wholesome beings when directed properly. They quickly forgive the Grinch and welcome him to the festivities ''twice over'', and it all it takes is Cindy Lou and her father's speech about the real meaning of Christmas to destroy their materialistic nature. The only remaining antagonistic figure afterwards is the Mayor, who genuinely is materialistic and cynical, and also holds most of the power in the city (as well as being a tad of a ManipulativeBastard). In retrospect, the Whos are as inherently well meaning as they are in previous interpretations, [[GoodIsDumb albeit much more impressionable and easy to corrupt]] (which given the standard buffoonery in DrSeuss works, isn't hard to imagine).

* The story arc of the Grinch's mindset towards Christmas reflects a lot of adults'. Hating Christmas largely due to the stress of the grueling month-long deathmarch up to it but enjoying the holiday itself.

*** So that means we have the possibility of a parallel story involving a Who bringing the Christmas joy and spirit to the perpetually dour Grinchville? I'd read that.
