This Scene In The Grinch Is Ruining People's Childhood

How the Grinch stole my childhood...

We're feeling the festive spirit as they settle down to their favourite Christmas movies this week, but people who tuned in to How The Grinch Stole Christmas are just now noticing one key moment in the film that has ruined their childhoods.

The subtle moment in the beloved Jim Carey film was overlooked by many young viewers, and has shocked people who decided to stream it this Christmas.

One shocked viewer shared the scene to social media, warning others: "When you see it, you can't unsee it."

Check it out here:

The childhood-shattering moment comes as the Grinch's origins are explained.

In the scene, we see a baby Grinch left outside a home in Whoville during Christmas.

Inside, a party is in full swing, so no one notices the little green infant outside.

But upon closer inspection, some eagle-eyed viewers noticed party guests putting their keys in a glass bowl...

Did you notice this scene?

People are re-watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas. (

After rewatching the scene on TikTok, some viewers still weren't entirely sure what was going on, so if you're still confused, you're not alone.

One user explained that the bowl of keys hints that the celebration was, in fact, a swingers party.

They wrote: "For those who don't know... you pick a random set of keys after the party... and go home with that person."

Some formerly innocent viewers were shocked to learn what the residents of Whoville had been up to.

One commented: "Nooooo I thought it was just because they were drinking."

It turns out that the residents of Whoville were up to more than we thought. (

Another wrote: "No I refuse this new found information, thanks though."

A third added: "The Whoville Christmas swingers club haha."

One TikTok user suggested: "And now ya'll get why he truly hated Christmas, it's his trauma response to THIS."

Rationalising the shocking scene, another joked: "I mean... it is a small town. Gotta make things interesting!!"

Other commenters, who seemed unfazed by the swingers party, noted that there were lots of similar jokes in the film that younger viewers might not have spotted.

We need to rewatch this movie ASAP!
