For that part, I think the intention was to have the characters look like figures in a music box, hence the sort of robotic way in which they move. It is a little jarring, though, as none of the other faces have that style.
That bothered me a bit as well, although what bothered me more is they appear to be giants. They're literally 20 feet tall, even within the context of the show--their bodies go from floor to ceiling. :DFor that part, I think the intention was to have the characters look like figures in a music box, hence the sort of robotic way in which they move.

No Whoville show planned on the tour, unfortunately. No idea if they plan to have a Grinch out there.Looking ahead to Grinchmas this weekend: the recent emails to passholders, as well as the USH website itself, does not mention the Whoville show on the Studio Tour. Has this mainstay of USH's Grinchmas celebration been quietly cut this year? Has anyone heard?

I went back in this thread and saw that ItsATrap posted the following back in August (post #30):
"Auditions are Aug 22. No casting call for the Whoville show on the tram tour. I'm guessing they aren't doing that show this year."
I'm going to be very disappointed if they've cut the tram show. That has been a signature piece of Grinchmas for a long time. I hope they do something. Maybe it will just be the Grinch walking around the Whoville set with a scripted moment like Norman Bates? But the Whoville show has been one of my favorite things about Grinchmas.
I think the money went into the Wizarding World holidays, but to be honest, the entire park has been feeling a budget squeeze this year (see black walls of death at Horror Nights).My buddy has been in that show for the past few years as the Mayor and he said they aren't doing it this year due to budget cuts.
