Ah, Martha Mae Whovier and her dresses. I especially like the blue coat and white dress she wore at the end the most. She also makes me think of classic Hollywood era actresses too.
This is kinda my take on her, basing her design on both the original movie and the Whos from Horton Hears a Who.

The Time Teddy Roosevelt Traumatized Dr. Seuss

Things didn’t go so well for young Theodor Seuss Geisel when he met Teddy Roosevelt.

…Despite the widespread appeal of the story, not everyone was pleased. Geisel once received a letter from brothers David and Bob Grinch of Ridgefield, N.J., asking if he would change the Grinch’s name. Friends were teasing them. Seuss responded, “I disagree with your friends who ‘harass’ you. Can’t they understand that the Grinch in my story is the Hero of Christmas? Sure… he starts out as a villain, but it’s not how you start out that counts. It’s what you are at the finish.” (source)

"…we needed a character who could act as observer…and we needed a victim. Max is both observer and victim, at one with the audience, who are also feeling victimized by this Grinch who wants to destroy one of our major refuges—Christmas.” —Chuck Jones, Chuck Reducks, Drawing from the Fun Side of Life
"Max" model study, mixed media (collage, graphite, xerox on 12 field animation paper) by Chuck Jones.
