Jenner's decision to make a Grinch-themed Kylie Cosmetics collection shows just how long-lasting the character's cultural impact has been. The Grinch debuted in How The Grinch Stole Christmas!, published in 1957. Since then, the story has been adapted as a 1966 animated film, a 2000 live-action movie starring Jim Carrey, and a 2018 animated film starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Grinch.
The next adaptation of the book is a live television production of Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical. featuring former Glee actor Matthew Morrison as The Grinch, Dennis O'Hare as Max the Dog, and Amelia Minto as Cindy-Lou Who. The production will be filmed at the Troubadour Theatre in London and is scheduled to air on NBC on Dec. 9. Morrison announced the show on the Today Show last week.
