Blast this Christmas music! It’s joyful and triumphant.” — The Grinch

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is a yearly holiday treasure, but did you know that there is a — not so known — HALLOWEEN Grinch story??

Gah!! I was so excited when I found this out!!

Christmas isn’t the ONLY holiday the Grinch tries to ruin for those Whos down in Whoville.

Halloween Is Grinch Night, which is a PREQUEL to the Christmassy Grinch Story, came out in 1977, and I can’t believe I never knew this existed!

It all starts when the Sour Sweet Wind kicks up through the town of Whoville. All the Whos know it’s going to be a Grinchy Grinch night — so watch out!

So I suggest we stay indoors tonight Our problems are immense I wouldn’t go out on Grinch night For six dollars and sixty cents.

Halloween is Grinch Night

Of course, since the Grinch is involved, you know it’s going to be trouble for the Whos.

In fact, when Little Euchariah Who gets blown away to Mount Crumpit, he comes across the Grinch, who is on his way to prickelize the township of Whoville with his paraphernalia wagon.

You can totally find out what happens, because this 25 minute short musically animated film is available — in its entirety — on YouTube. Gah!

Now, if you want to add it to your DVD collection, you can also find it on Amazon — but it is only available through 3rd parties sellers. And, 3rd party sellers don’t sell it for cheap — 100 bucks not cheap.

But, for this price, you get THREE Grinch movies: Halloween is Grinch Night, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and The Grinch Grinches The Cat in the Hat. It may just be the perfect Grinchy deal.

HOWEVER — for now — throw on your Grinch face mask, run to Starbucks for your Grinch Frappuccino from the Starbucks Secret Menu, and tune into YouTube to watch Halloween is Grinch Night!
