Back in the mid-1990s as Dr. Suess' widow, Audrey Geisel, looked to adapt some of her husband's more popular works into film, she received a few pitches for movie versions of the classic book 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.' One of those would be from Ron Howard, who would eventually direct Jim Carrey in a live-action adaptation of the 'Grinch' story. Another one, only now revealed, would've been a CG-animated movie with Jack Nicholson starring as The Grinch.
