It isn’t every day that you get to talk one on one with the big guy of Christmas himself. No, not Santa Claus. We are talking about The Grinch of course! Grinchmas is back and going on now at Universal Studios Hollywood as the theme park celebrates the Who-lidays. Centered out of the park’s centrally located Universal Plaza, the annual event features a towering “Grinchmas” tree – a whimsical centerpiece twisting and spiraling 60 feet tall, The Grinch, his adorable dog Max and the Who-ville Whos. But of course we had to chat with the monster behind it all…



Included with admission, Grinchmas programs including:

  • Musical performances by Martha May Who-vier and the Who Dolls and the Who-liday Singers – a hip a cappella boy-band
  • Who-ville Post Office / “Grow Your Heart 3 Sizes” campaign – guests share their good deeds on a postcard and mail to The Grinch. In return, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. and Random House Children’s Books will pay it forward by donating a book to a child in need
  • Ornament decorating
  • Story Time with Cindy-Lou-Who


When you take a ride on the world famous Studio Tour, it includes a live Who-bilation performance at the original Whoville movie set. “Grinchmas” continues daily from December 16 through January 1, 2017, and is included in the price of theme park admission.
