The sequel to Stooby’s noir parody of How The Grinch Stole.
Following on from writing his tale of Edward Grinch for the Seuss Noir contest Stooby got to thinking about whether Dr. Seuss had ever written a sequel to How The Grinch Stole Christmas. He found a reference to a TV production called It’s Grinch Night (originally named Halloween is Grinch Night). What follows is a very very loose adaptation therefore of the plot of a show Stooby has never seen!
Just 2 warnings before you begin to read. Firstly this is much more Noir than Stooby’s telling of How The Grinch Stole Christmas and so is not for the feint hearted. Secondly it is long. To quote Stooby “It’s a story that after a few flashes of inspiration really wrote itself, who was I to argue with the length?”
Edward the Grinch was many years dead,
That first evil deed was not the last,
For two years the papers all spoke of killings,
And in a bar downtown,
And as the sun rose the next day,
And now the very next day,
And what of young Ukariah, did he die?
And of Grinch Night the story became known,
