Once upon a time in Who-ville, the home of the merry and warm-hearted Whos, the ancient martial art of Taekkyon was developed as a method of protecting the Whos from invaders, including the Whats, a radical group that believed it should rule Who-ville and the world. Over the centuries, the art was refined until it became known as Taekwondo. Who warriors trained in Taekwondo and it became their primary method of hand-to-hand combat. Taekwondo became known as the way of the warrior, and it as well as the warriors were highly respected by all Whos.
Every Who down in Who-ville liked Taekwondo a lot, but the Grinch, greedy and green with a heart "two sizes too small," who lived on snowy Mount Crumpit, a steep, high mountain just north of Who-ville, did not. As he looked down on Who-ville, he grew greener with envy of the success of Taekwondo and he wondered how he could capitalize on its success and make himself even more greenback dollars.
The Grinch saw that the Whos were fascinated by the martial arts; they seemed spellbound by the martial art exolits they were seeing in movies and reading about in magazines.
