Continuity mistake: After the Grinch stole all of the presents, Officer Wholihan gets into his police car and drags the mayor's bed from out of his house. When the bed smashes through the window it breaks the top off the middle post of the bed. Then when it comes back to the shot of the bed it's been fixed.
Continuity mistake: When the Grinch is messing up the mail in the back room, he takes out a package and puts it in another one. When he takes his hand out the package falls out and lands next to the pile of presents. The mistake is when the camera goes to another shot, the package is not lying on the ground as it was before.
Visible crew/equipment: The movie was filmed in a large set to recreate Whoville, but in the mayor's first appearance, if you look in Lou Who's glasses, you can see a stage light from the ceiling above.
The Grinch: The nerve of those Whos. Inviting me down there - and on such short notice. Even if I wanted to go my schedule wouldn't allow it. Four o'clock, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one. 5:30, jazzercize. 6:30, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again. 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing; I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9 I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?
Trivia: When the Grinch takes the table cloth from the table, everything on the table was supposed to fall off. When Jim Carrey yanked out the cloth however, everything stayed in place. Jim immediately walked back to the table and improvised knocking everything off and then knocking the table over.
