Cindy Lou Who? We’re all about Halloween right now!

“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is a holiday classic that we look forward to watching with our families every year. Even though it’s less than a half-hour long, it always gets us into the Christmas spirit.

But what about the rest of the year? If you’re looking to get your Grinch fix now, you’re in luck because there is actually a prequel to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” called “Halloween is Grinch Night”? Say what?!

Yep, it’s true! This Emmy-winning prequel first aired as an animated TV special for Halloween in 1977 and is now available for your viewing pleasure on YouTube!

“Halloween is Grinch Night” tells the story of the Grinch terrorizing the Who’s of Whoville — only this time his plot is foiled by a young boy named Euchariah Who, rather than the adorable Cindy Lou Who.
