ATTENTION: THE FOLLOWING REPROT OF JIM CARREY RETURNING FOR THE GRINCH 2 IS A RUMOR. PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING STORY WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.

The popular Dr. Seuss’ character The Grinch has been entertaining people of all ages for generations. From the original book form 1957, to the 1966 Chuck Jones animated short, and even to guests of the Universal Studios theme parks.

 


Perhaps the best known version is the live-action adaptation from 2000 that stars popular comedian Jim Carrey. This version is the one that the Universal Studios version is based on.

Jim Carrey was said to be the highlight of the film with his over exaggerated nature fitting well with a social outcast who has lived by themselves for decades. The film is also an interesting contrast between two extremes when it comes to the subject of Christmas. One obsessed with the materials and commercialism while the other rejects the traditions of kindness and togetherness. Only one knows the true spirit and is able to bring everyone together.

Despite this the film has garnered some criticisms for being different from the book. But it is the more popular and accepted adaptation when it comes to theatrical releases since the 2018 attempt by Illumination (starring Benedict Cumberbatch) wasn’t received as fondly.

But over two decades later a new report from Giant Freaking Robot via a “trusted source” it is reported that Jim Carrey will be returning to the role in a sequel. No details have been revealed about the potential plot.

There were other Grinch stories like the Halloween themed Grinch Night and the crossover The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat. Just imagine Mike Myers’ Cat in the Hat making a return as well.

What do you think? Do you believe that Jim Carrey is returning to play the role of mean old Mister Grinch?

A recent report via Giant Freaking Robot suggests that Jim Carrey will return as The Grinch over twenty years later.

im all for it. i think jim did the role very well. .

Count me in! The original is now a Christmas classic that I try to watch every year. I've probably seen it 20 times and still notice something I missed before every time I watch it. 

The number of Grinch costumes you see out and about during the Christmas season make it obvious how popular that movie still is

I do like Jim Carey so I would see it. Probably not at the theater, but at home yes!

To me, that would be the equivalent of a “Miracle On 35th Street.” Sometimes a story gets told right the first time and then should be left alone.

I'm having trouble imagining this, because Jim Carrey actually hated every minute he spent in the Grinch makeup. He called his wife several times saying he was going to quit, to which she allegedly replied, "Twenty Million Dollars."

Besides, if they couldn't get the sequel to Bruce Almighty, tentatively called Brucifer, greenlit, I'd think it's pretty long odds for the Grinch.

I'm going to reserve judgment on this one. I've heard rumors about this, but that's all. Trying to picture Carrey trying to do his thing 20 some years after the first, just can't see it. I wish him good luck if he does go ahead with it though.

    • Published by William B. Gilley in 1821, “The Children’s Friend. Number III. A New-Year’s Present to the Little Ones from Five to Twelve”, is believed to be the first book published in America to include lithographic illustrations. This book includes a poem about “Santeclaus” along with eight colored illustrations.

      However, what makes this book significant is the poem and illustrations are thought to be the earliest known visual representation of Santa Claus in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. The poem also marks Santa’s first appearance on Christmas Day rather than December 6, the feast day of St. Nicholas.

       

      The Children’s Friend. Number III.
      A New-Year’s Present to the Little Ones from Five to Twelve
      by William B. Gilley, 1821


      Old Santeclaus with much delight
       His reindeer drives this frosty night.
       O’er chimney tops, and tracks of snow,
       To bring his yearly gifts to you.

       The steady friend of virtuous youth,
       The friend of duty, and of truth,
       Each Christmas eve he joys to come
       Where love and peace have made their home”


       Through many houses he has been,
       And various beds and stockings seen,
       Some, white as snow, and neatly mended,
       Others, that seem’d for pigs intended.

       Where e’er I found good girls or boys,
       That hated quarrels, strife and noise,
       Left an apple, or a tart,
       Or wooden gun, or painted cart;

       To some I gave a pretty doll,
       To some a peg-top, or a ball;
       No crackers, cannons, squibs, or rockets,
       To blow their eyes up, or their pockets.

       No drums to stun their Mother’s ear,
      Nor swords to make their sisters fear;
      But pretty books to store their mind
       With knowledge of each various kind.

       But where I found the children naughty,
       In manners rude, in temper haughty,
       Thankless to parents, liars, swearers,
       Boxers, or cheats, or base tale-bearers,


       I left a long, black, birchen rod,
       Such as the dread command of God
       Directs a Parent’s hand to use
       When virtue’s path his sons refuse

    • 10 Essentials to Being a Better Santa
      Here are some DOs and DON'Ts on being Santa

      Treat every child with respect.


      Never make fun of a child.


      Look into the child’s eyes when you speak to them.


      Speak softly. Children are sharing confidences with you.


      Acknowledge a child’s requests even if you don’t understand them.


      Never promise a toy request to avoid a child’s disappointment.


      Never promise a pet. Santas a toymaker and only animals produce pets.


      If the child can’t remember their wish list, assure them you know what they want.


      Never leave a child wondering if Santa heard their Christmas wishes.


      Every child worries about being on Santas “Naughty or Nice List”. Tell each child “You’re on the “Nice List.” It will bring happiness to everyone!

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.
