When the Cat in the Hat gets home the Grinch first starts changing all the sounds in his house by using a special Vacusound Sweeper he created.

Then, the Grinch builds a darkhouse, which is like a lighthouse except is spreads darkness, and proceeds to darken the Cat in the Hat.

The Cat in the Hat then tries to hide in a restaurant, but the Grinch is able make items come to life and attack the Cat in the Hat.

The Cat in the Hat then leads the town folk to the Grinch's house to confront the Grinch. They sing a tender song the Grinch's mom once sung to him, and the touched Grinch agrees to disassemble his terrible machines.
