The Grinch & Cindy Lou Who

Updated on December 21, 2013

Only a Grinch Could Steal Candy from Little Cindy Lou Who

Little Cindy Lou Who, was no more than two, was the cute little Who who awoke to find the Grinch in her house in Dr. Seuss' classic story, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. That evil Grinch stole her candy cane (and everything else from the house), lied to her and sent her back to bed.

Taylor Momsen played the character in the 2000 movie and June Foray voiced the character in the original 1966 TV show.Here's more information about this cute character from the popular Christmas story.

How the Grinch Stole ChristmasCHECK PRICE

Little Cindy Lou Who is one of my favorite characters in the classic story, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

This little tyke climbed out of bed after the Grinch had tiptoed into her bedroom and stolen all the little Who's candy canes, and then she bravely confronted him to find out why he was stealing her Christmas tree. Of course, the Grinch thought up a lie, and thought it up quick, but little Cindy Lou Who nearly derailed the ol' Grinch's plan to steal Christmas. Go, Cindy!

If you've never read the original story or seen the original 1966 animated program starring the voice of Boris Karloff as The Grinch, go do it!
