On what Character from a Charles Dicken's novel is the Grinch based?

The Grinch is based on Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol.Dr. Seuss reported that he based the Grinch on himself. He saw his reflection in the mirror one day and was surprised at how grumpy he looked. He was in a bad mood because of the noise on his street. He later used a personalized licence plate that said GRINCH on his car. However, Chuck Jones is said to have influenced how the face of the animated 1966 Grinch looked, and some people think the cartoon face of the Grinch looks like Chuck Jones.
