Max The Grinch Dog Dead

What if I told you that after The Grinch died, he became Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas?

The theory starts with The Grinch accidentally being dropped off at Christmas Town, otherwise known as Whoville, instead of Halloweentown, which explains why he is not like the others in Whoville.

After The Grinch finally accepts Christmas, he lives out a happy life, with his heart growing two sizes, but after his death, he is transported to Halloween Town, with his past life only a distant memory. However, because he has experienced Christmas before in a past life, he becomes obsessed with it when hes transported to Christmas Town.

The theory also suggests that its no coincidence that both characters have a dog as a companion, which would mean that The Grinchs dog Max, became Skellingtons dog, Hero.

Sure this is just a theory and hasnt officially been recognised, its definitely going to change the way we watch these Christmas films.

His owner, Janelle Derouen, adopted him from a Louisiana sugar cane farmer in 1983.
