    Species: Human
    Media of origin: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

    Mayor Augustus Maywho is the main antagonist of the 2000 film How the Grinch Stole Christmas, based on the book of the same name by Dr. Seuss. He is the greedy and self-serving mayor of Whoville and the archenemy of the Grinch. His main goal is to marry Martha May Whovier and to keep himself popular.

    Why He Doesn't Deserve to Be Mayor of Whoville

    1. Just like Aloysius O'Hare from the film adaptation of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, and Larry Quinn from the live action adaptation of The Cat in the Hat, he mostly exists in this movie to give some more material that the book did not have.
    2. He treats The Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, Lou Lou Who, and Betty Lou Who horribly, especially with the former, as he was bullying him and told him that he doesn't have a chance with Martha, and he's 8 years old and has a beard, which caused The Grinch to become self-conscious and started to shave, which did not end well for him. He even called the Grinch's bad shaving attempt a HACK JOB, and started to laugh along with the classmates!
    3. He even called the gift, that The Grinch made for Martha, hideoderous.
    4. He kept trying to come up with an excuse to not invite The Grinch to the whobilation, by saying "The award cannot go to The Grinch, because sometimes things get the lead pipe cinch." Cindy even calls him out for making that up, but he claims it's in the book of Who, but says that he "lost his place", which proves he's a liar.
    5. When the Grinch felt like he was getting all the love from the Whos and won the award, the Mayor out of jealousy purposely gives the Grinch a razor as a present to remind him of his horrible past, which is just cruel.
      • Jeez, even Martha May herself was horrified at that moment.
    6. Not only does he give The Grinch a razor to remind him of his horrible past, he also proposed to Martha right in front of him!
      • It doesn't help that he even said that if Martha agrees to be his wife, she'll also recieve a new car. Proposals don't work like that.
    7. No thanks to him bullying the Grinch, he is the main reason why The Grinch started to become mean and hated Christmas.
    8. His design is pretty ugly and awkward to look at, as his face looks more like a dog than a Who (mainly with the nose).
    9. In the extended version, when the judge declared that Betty Lou Who won the Christmas lights contest, he unfairly announced Martha May as the winner, just so he has hopes in proposing to her.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He did get some comeuppances, for example, his hair getting shaved off by The Grinch, getting dragged around while in bed and dragged into the Christmas tree while it was hooked to a police car, getting called out by Lou Lou Who for not realizing the true meaning of Christmas, and getting dumped by Martha May, which is pretty satisfying.
    2. Just like the other actors, Jeffery Tamber did a pretty good job portraying him.
