ACTUALLY THE ORIGINAL WAS DONE BY DR SEUSS NOT DISNEY
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SEEING THE SHOW BE SURE TO GET THE DR SEUSS VERSION IT IS THE BEST...
THE GRINCH IS OVER 40 YEARS OLD
SO BE SURE TO GET THE DR SEUSS VERSION
IT IS ONLY a half hr long
SO SHOULD BE NO PROBLEM

This picture is about the original version of The Grinch, and has nothing to do with the Disney version. Growing up I owned the book, and watched the half-hour animated TV special every Christmas. Please stop spamming my art by yelling about things I already know.

At least 53. That said, none of them are human, so we have no idea what their maturity rate is, or how old they can get, or if they're even mortal. So it's totally plausible to fill in your own answers and end up with a scenario where a 50-year age difference isn't impossible -- or even unusual.

The scenes with Cindy Lou REALLY take on a whole new perspective when you realize what Taylor Momsen is like these days.

This is sweet, I like it lots. But being me, now I'm thinking 'What is the lifespan of a/the Grinch? Does he age in reverse like Mork or Benjamin Button so that when Cindy Lou is older he's the right age for her, but then she'll be a grandma caring for an infant...' :brain shorts out:

:starts over: I like how curvy Cindy is, and she still has the sweet round face she had as a child. The Grinch looks great too, but I prefer him looking less bishie.

He's at least 53 when the original story takes place ("Why, for fifty-three years I've put up with it now!"), so if he does age in reverse, he had a very long lifespan to start with.

Me, I figure he's more like an immortal mythical creature - a kirin, a vampire, the Grim Reaper - than any species with the conventional aging-and-dying thing going on. Or else he just has such a long lifespan that age loses its meaning. (Thus why people can ship the Doctor with anything that moves.)

As for Cindy Lou...I just took her childhood roundness as foreshadowing =P

The live action version wasn't *that* bad, however they did take a HELL of a lot of liberties with it.

Back to the point of the comment, I love how you did Cindy here ^_^ She's always been so adorable

I always thought the grinch was more handsome than people gave him credit for. Good work.

I couldn`t resist making that pun xD

Ummm...if you don't have to ask who the Grinch (the green guy in the picture) is, then you should already know who Cindy Lou Who is. They're the two main characters of the book =P

I`ve never read the book. Hell, I didn`t even know it was a book! =D
I`ve never seen the movie either. I just vaguely remember a few clips from a disneyfied version when I was a kid. And, of course, I`ve read here and there that "Grinch wanted to steal the christmas" n`stuff:D
Ergo: I didn`t know that this Cindy character existed xD

That would be the original cartoon - it wasn't by Disney, and it's actually incredibly true to the book.

Check one of them out sometime! (Don't see the live-action movie, though. It sucks.)

I don`t remember if it was actually Disney that made that cartoon or not, but I define anything thats been "cartooneyfied" as "disneyfied", since I pretty much grew up with Disney=D
