Christmas will knock on your doors in a couple of weeks, and the festivities might have overwhelmed you. However, one Christmas staple will never bore you. Indeed, we are talking about How The Grinch Stole Christmas, a movie that has become a fan favorite over the years. Unfortunately, searching for How The Grinch Stole Christmas on Netflix won’t be of any use.

Most of the fans search for the 2000 movie on Netflix because it was on the platform for the longest time. Since few search for the movie after or before Christmas, fans have a misconception that the movie is still available on Netflix.

Netflix has removed the classic from its library because its deal with the distributors might have ended. Right now, Grinch’s plan of stopping Christmas altogether in Whoville, and your plan of finding the movie, have the same probability of success.

The story is all about Grinch, a Christmas non-believer/hater who wants the town of Whoville to stop believing in Christmas. However, a six-year-old Cindy Lou ends up being an angel who guides and reforms Grinch. Dr. Seuss made the perfect Christmas miracle story that will always be relevant.

The first one was released way back in 1966 and was a 25-minute film, but the animation can compete with the present day’s CGI or VFX. The 2000 movie is a pure display of class by Jim Carrey, and it even won an Oscar for Best Makeup. Benedict Cumberbatch has starred in the most recent one, released in 2018.
